Our Trust Department has utilized David's expertise for several years to assist our clients with their overall estate plans. He delivers excellent wealth transfer solutions and is able to explain them to our clients in an easy to undertand format.
I highly recommend David Frees, III for your estate and wealth transfer needs.

I have relied on David's legal advice to make critical decisions on handling family wealth and making appropriate decisions for my family's future.
David is an expert in the areas of wills, trusts and estates. But beyond his specific knowledge, he's an outstanding problem-solver, who helped me sort through some complex planning issues.
Additionally, he is superior to every other attorney -- in fact, every other professional -- I've ever used. He inspires trust, and works effectively to form the kind of rapport needed to get the kind of information you're typically providing to someone dealing with your will, trusts and estate planning issues.
He is thorough, and he guided me through some challenging decisions. He is so effective at discussion available solutions and weighing the pros and cons, that when I finally made decisions, I was able to put those issues to rest without the kind of second-guessing or reconsideration that can occur if you don't have expert help.
David is not just an outstanding attorney (recognized in the "Best of" issue of our regional magazine), he's an amazing human being as well. Those are difficult to find in any field.

I have known Dave Frees for several years now. I can't think of anyone who is more skilled, knowledgeable, responsive, and trustworth as an estate lawyer. My husband and I are very pleased to have Dave help us manage our affairs and plan for our family's future.

I have known Dave for over 20 years and have had the pleasure to collaborate with him on many cases. Additionally we have worked together for the last 3 years on the administration of a very large estate. He is literally the "Go-To" attorney on any estate planning or estate administration matters. He has my highest and unqualified endorsement.

I have been practicing law for 27 years and I know a great lawyer when I work with one. And there is no doubt that David Frees belongs in this category. He is an outstandingly knowledgeable and qualified Estate Planning attorney, but perhaps more importantly, with his communication expertise he brings estate planning to a whole new level. If you are about to plan your estate you must have an attorney that truly listens to you and understands the communication of your desires and values. David Frees will work closely with you to see that your core values and desires are part of your estate plan. You will leave his office knowing that you have provided for your family with the help of an attorney dedicated to meeting your unique needs.
