    I endorse this lawyer. I first met Ms. Freeman in 1987 when we were both litigation associates at Shearman & Sterling. Since then I have continued to work with any number of cases, includuing commerical litigation/arbitration and employment. Ms. Freeman is a superb lawyer. She is very astute and pays close attention to details, without losing sight of the forest. She is very personable and is sensitive to client needs, both legal and emotional. If you need a commercial litigation/arbitration or employment lawyer, you are well advised to consult Ms. Freeman.
