Help when I needed it
I was in an urgent situation where I needed legal counsel in the state of Florida. My wife and I reside in North Carolina and we’re being sued by a company that caught us completely off guard. We were served a summons to appear in the Florida courtroom within a week. Not knowing what to do we reached out to Ron Frey, and he went above and beyond to make sure we had legal representation. We are very thankful for his efforts, and for going above, and beyond the call of duty. Now we have legal representation and that has taken a lot of stress off of us. Thank you, Ron.

My story
I was arrested for a DUI, felony possession of cannabis and two traffic citations. I hired Ron a few days after my arrest. He was very professional and responsive to every question I had about my case. He even helped me answer a question I had on a background check. Ron worked diligently on my case. The felony and traffic charges were dismissed and the DUI was reduced to reckless driving. The most important thing to me was the felony charge being dismissed. Thank you Mr. Frey for your diligence, professionalism, and willingness to work and communicate with me through my experience. Ron is your guy if you need a representative.

Knows Tampa Traffic Court
Ron Frey offered his expertise at a fair price. His knowledge of the Tampa Traffic Court and Judges was instrumental in putting me at ease while deployed overseas. He made himself available when I was able to call and he worked to ensure I was prepared for what may occur. His hard work resulted in a favorable outcome for me and for that I will always be grateful.

Da Man!
He was very thorough on details and I didn’t have any questions looming every step of the way. I would highly recommend his services to anyone in need of an attorney. Anytime there was an issue he would call and also took care of some paperwork that was filed incorrectly by the courts to ease my frustrations. Mr. Frey worked on a payment as well for me which was helpful as I was starting a new career in Alaska with a major move.

Stellar Attorney and Great Guy
I contacted Ron after a fender bender I had that became very complicated. From the moment I contacted him until the final disposition of the case he was incredibly responsive, knowledgeable, empathetic, and went way above and beyond to make a very upsetting and stressful situation bearable. I would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat, and can’t say enough about what a genuinely nice person and really good attorney he is. I know I will definitely be calling him again if I need representation.

1000% recommend Ron Frey
Unfortunately, I got myself into a situation that I needed to retain a lawyer. After calling 10 lawyers in the Tampa Bay Area Ron was the last one I called. I only spoke with him for a few seconds and IMMEDIATELY I wanted to retain him. He took the time to actually TALK and LISTEN to me and was very understanding. I called my family and said he’s the one. Anytime I had a question, was unsure about something or just need advice Ron was right there to talk to me. He was worth every penny I paid. Not only that he got me out of a very complex situation I was in. Ron went ABOVE and beyond for me and I appreciate him more than he knows. Especially being able to talk to him whenever I needed him meant more than anything. Their were times I thought to myself “I am probably getting on his nerves or man there is always something popping up all the time with my case” however, he never seemed bothered or annoyed with me lol. He is someone I will keep in contact with and will ALWAYS 1000% recommend him to anyone who gets themselves into a situation and need help getting out of. Thank you for everything ron. I knew that he had my BEST interest at heart!!!!! Undoubtedly the best lawyer I have EVER dealt with! I say that with the upmost confidence.

The zealous advocate your criminal case requires
Ron is a careful, thorough, and highly persistent attorney. I was arrested, charged with violent offenses, and held on a $125k bond. I had never been in trouble with the law, but found myself locked up. Ron was recommended by a family member, and it was the best recommendation I've received! Sunday morning, bright and early, Ron was at the jail to meet with me to go over my case. He spent weeks trying to chase down all of the "evidence" the State claimed to have. Phone calls were not productive, and the prosecutor's office would not communicate via email. Ron literally had to chase down the prosecutor at their office, and in court, just to get them to review the merits of my case. The public defender failed to get my bond reduced, but Ron was able to get a second bite at the apple, and the bond was reduced to $50k. Once he had all of the "evidence", he discussed strategy with me. The ultimate decisions regarding my case were truly mine to make. We could have successfully defended the case, but Ron had another option to consider. For the second time, he took a second bite of the apple with a deferred prosecution counseling program. Although the time to apply for said option had elapsed, Ron was able to get the prosecutor's office, and the judge to consider it. I completed the counseling, and the charges were formally dismissed. Had it not been for Ron's persistence, I could have spent a lot more time in jail, and the outcome could have been markedly different. When your freedom and your future hang in the balance, there is no one I would trust more than Ron Frey!

Charges dismissed!
I reached out to Ron Frey with questions about 2 charges my son was facing after an accident. He is 16 years old and was charged with careless driving and too fast for road conditions. His accident accused bodily injuries to several occupants. Ticket clinics were unable to help, other lawyers were reluctant to take the case without a large retainer anticipating trial. Without Ron we were looking at at least 10 points on his license, suspended license and a hefty fine. Ron looked Into my sons charges and made me feel at ease from the beginning. Both charges were dismissed!! I highly recommend Ron for any charges you may be facing!

Great Communicator and Caring!
Ron was very quick to pick up our phone calls and respond very promptly when we had a concern or question. I know he was busy but he always made us feel like we were his only client. Legal matters can be very stressful but Ron always made me feel calmer. He explained matters clearly and gave us clear direction. I would highly recommend Ron to anyone in need of legal services. He approaches his job in a very caring manner. Thanks Ron!

Simply Wonderful/Amazing/Professional
I Hired Attorney Frey in regards to a charge of a DUI which in the end, and with his efforts, I wasn’t convicted of. His fee was reasonable and he was ALWAYS available when I needed him. He walked me through each step of the way. He was very knowledgeable and helpful, Through this whole process. I have learned that there are so many hoops to jump through, so many administrative fees, court fees, driving school, impact panels etc... it literally seems never ending and can take a very long time to get through court and get all of your Administrative requirements fulfilled. Attorney Frey, even with this pandemic, got the case done, literally as fast as possible and kept pushing for my behalf as his client to wrap things up as fast and as accurate as possible. I highly recommend him. The court process can be long and stressful, so having him on my side, made it so much more bearable. Thanks Ron

Literally a Life Saver
If you are looking for a criminal defense attorney that will take a personal interest in YOU and ensuring that you get the best outcome, look no further - Ron Frey is your man. Ron is always there with suggestions to help keep you on the right path and is always available to talk to you and your loved ones about the criminal justice process and any concerns you might have. I came to Ron addicted to drugs, scared about my pending legal matter and with a feeling of overall hopelessness. Ron helped get me into recovery, guided me through making smart decisions to position me for success and worked with my friends and family to prepare them for the sentencing hearing. Ron came to court prepared to FIGHT for me and was my fiercest advocate to the judge. I was looking at a pretty lengthy sentence and through Ron's hard work and aggressive strategy, I was sentenced far below the guidelines. Fast-forward to today, I have over three years clean, all of this is behind me, and I have hope - I'm living my best life. I am eternally grateful to Ron - he's one of the best decisions I've ever made, you won't be disappointed.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. This lawyers contributions to this site are invaluable. I happily endorse this lawyers work, ability and charity to those asking for advice. Further, I like to endorse good lawyers, because I find the AVVO rating system to be dishonest and corrupt. Frequently, disgruntled litigants on the opposing side (not your clients) will bash a lawyer on this site, pretending to be "your" client. When this situation is brought to AVVO attention, Avvo refuses to do anything to investigate and remove the false, slanderous "client" reviews. AVVO is a mean petty internet blog site trying to make money off of lawyers, and does not care if the public receives truthful information."
