Though Attorney Free was not admitted to practice for our specific legal needs in Texas and Ohio, he was helpful, patient and took his time to review with us the information.
He also personally followed-up and made recommendations for alternate legal options - something really rather refreshing.
It is also important to note that Attorney Free's staff was extremely helpful in facilitating a response from him.
We shall definitely keep Attorney Free in mind should we require future Civil Rights legal services in Tennessee.

My civil rights where violated a few years ago. I could not find an Attorney. I contacted Andrew, even though it was not an immigration case; He took immediate action to help me and then found Attorneys' who handled the specific area's of law my case required. He spent countless hours helping me. He still periodically contacts me after all this time to see how I am doing. If he would go through all that for someone who is not his client , how much more would he do for his clients. Andrew sincerely cares about everyone he helps. You cannot go wrong choosing Andrew.

Mr. Free met with me and my family and he took a lot of time to listen, we had to translate all questions and answers and he had a lot of patience. He went through all the options with us and took extra time to make sure we understood. He is an excellent lawyer, he is passionate and sincere.

I got to know Andrew when he shared office space with my firm for a couple of years. He is hands-down one of, if not the, top immigration attorney in the country. Andrew is extremely intelligent, very knowledgeable on all immigration issues, and very passionate about his work for immigrants. He is very aggressive, client-focused and success-oriented while always bearing ethics in mind. There is a very simple reason why so many attorneys refer immigration cases to Andrew – he is the best! I highly endorse this lawyer.
