Great Lawyer
Mr. Freeman worked with me on a child custody case. Though he can be a tough communicator, he still assisted me and moved forward in my case... Additionally, I gained quite an education on family law tthrough working with Mr. Freeman.

He is a great with notice of detail. He worked hard on the case sometimes even calling on Sat. and Sun. I know he had to of spent long nights working on the case and briefs. He was always concerned of my wellbeing. I would run back to him if I had to. His secretary was always just as caring and concerned.

Good Lawyer
I am extremely grateful to attorney Michael Freeman for his guidance, support, and generosity in helping me get through my divorce and custody battle. From the very beginning Mr. Freeman gave me sound advice, and agreed to help me with my divorce at a very reasonable price. He met with me on Saturdays which were the only times I was free. He was my third attorney, my first two attorneys rang up so much in legal bills that I had to postpone my divorce until they were paid. I never thought I was going to ever get divorce and custody of my children until a teacher at my school recommended Mr. Freeman. My divorce was very sad and painful, but I will always be grateful to Mr. Freeman for getting me through it smoothly and for getting me my children back.

Good lawyer
Michael is willing to work with people that most lawyers turn away. He worked with me on the fees and did a pretty good job. I thought I was going to jail, but thanks to him, I went home.

Great job in my divorce
Michael worked very hard to get me through my divorce with the result I needed. He was the only lawyer I ever met with that seemed as concerned with how I felt as a person going through this as he did whether we won or not. A great person and an excellent lawyer.

Disgrace to the legal Profession.
I retained Attorney Michael Lloyd Freeman for personal injury he made promises but failed to keep them. Refused to respond to my email and phone calls certified letter. Refused to inform me of case and tell the court the truth about his own actions always blaming the client never takes responsibility for his own actions. Intentionally mislead me failed to inform me of court date hoping I wouldn't show up so it would be dismissed. He's a discredit to the legal Profession. Unprofessional in appearance. His Pardner in his deceint is his Paralegal Wife.

A nightmare
I hired this man May 5th 2012 to help recover my judgement awared from a civil matter!!!! I paid my retainer fee of $150 and was told he would get right on it. A month went by and we heard nothing so the phone calls to his disorganized office began. I could never talk to him directly, after many calls and messages he finally called to apoloize saying he was sorry and that he dropped the ball on our case and literally forgot to work on it and promise my husband and myself he would get right on it and send us a email by the weeks end. Again nothing, so many phone calls and messages later its now Feb. 28 2013 and I have yet to talk to this man. My case was pretty easy, I hired a private investigator to track down the guy I was suing, his social security #, last address, his wife's info, job and everything. A easy case to be ignored and has wasted a year of maybe having my case settled. This man is horrible, his secretary is horrible. I wouldn't dare work for someone like this!!!!!! I have to now hire a new lawyer and hope I can get results!!! Please people DO NOT HIRE THIS MAN

Don't believe what he tells you!!!!!
I went to Michael Freeman to file for a divorce. When I went to meet him, he told me my divorce would take 90 days. I was so excited to here that! Before I paid it off he was always easy to reach, but the minute my balance was paid in full I could never come into contact with him. I would call almost every day and his secretary would answer whenever so someone would pick up. I even called his cell phone only for him to tell me he'll call back which of course he never did. It was a time before he told me that he was working on a case that was very important and that's the reason for not getting back to me. As a Lawyer he's suppose to make every client feel important no matter what the situation is. After nearly a two months I finally get a phone call only to hear that the papers hasn't been filed keep in mind my status was PAID IN FULL. His secretary told me that she found my papers in his office while cleaning up and he told me something happened to the last payment.....Yeah, I'm sure it did (side eye). To make the story shorter it took 7 months when all along he told me 90days. I would NEVER recommend this man to anybody. What a TERRIBLE and STRESSFUL experience !!!!

This man was a nightmare to deal with !!!
The worse lawyer ever!! Never returned phone calls, his office was a total mess. He didn't show up to my court hearing, telling me sorry he had another case that morning and it happened to be more important than mine. The judge almost threw me in jail!!! He just seemed so stressed out and he had a weird secretary that seems incompetent. I'm not usually a complainer but he is a messed up lawyer. If you hire him be prepared not to to have a lawyer because he's disorganized. Hire someone else!!
