Edward is best Confident Attorney !!
First day I saw Edward at his office a complete professional said I need help, He calmed me and did say let us talk about the situation then lets look how it goes. Later, as the days passed through was receiving regular updates on Case and next steps with progression on the case. Did talk to him over phone and emails he showed concern with professional manners to reply all my questions. At last he was a man who is stood on his words to get my case dismissed. He is confident and thinks guess he foresees the happenings he has a vision. Anybody who would want to seek help in situation would highly suggest Edward!!. Confident best suited up man.

Fantastic Lawyer
Edward did exactly what he aimed to do when taking on my case, which was getting it dismissed. He and his office kept me informed throughout the process. He gave me recommendations based on what he felt was right. He kept my court appearances at a minimum, which was great considering I live 5 hours away. I would highly recommend Edward to represent anyone I care about.

Amazing Lawyer
Mr. Freiner recently helped one of our family members with a serious charge (second degree felony assault with a deadly weapon). He guided us through the process and presented a packet to the Grand Jury that resulted in a complete dismissal of the case. We could not be more pleased with his professional, expert services. His fees were reasonable, and his kindness made the entire family feel at ease. Highly recommend!

I was being charged with a family assault charged class a! I'm currently on parole for an old case which doesn't have to do with anything remotely close to what I was being charged at the time...I knew he knew my past would make this case a very complicated one where I could've lost it all including my family, new born and one on the way...Edward went and took this case and put so much of himself into this case working extra hrs barely getting enough sleep his self. at the end of it all a year after the whole case has started... We were going to jury trial...he fought with all and that day I came out with an unanimous NOT GUILTY! verdict. I'm so thankful for all the countless hours he put into my case nd not giving up on it. I'll recommend him all day to anyone in the same or worst position that I was. I can't express my gratitude and thanks for all Edward has done not only for me but for my love ones. Thank You Edward A. Freiner

The best criminal defense attorney you can hire.
I was arrested for possession of marijuana, and not being for the the state of Texas it seemed like a nightmare. I hired Edward to help me get a game plan to free me from all my legal worries, he was worth every penny. He kept it real, he was a big help. I recommend Edward if you need help in court.

5 stars is not enough considering what he did for me
Wow. An excellent attorney. The legal troubles I hired Edward for began in 2015. The attorneys I hired then went through my case too quickly which resulted in probation for 2 years. 1 year into it, Denton county probation officers revoked me which caused my remaining charges to go back to court. I began contacting and consulting with attorneys again and the attorney that originally handled my case said I’m going to spend 3 months to 6 years in jail, and if I wanted to fight it I would have to submit a polygraph and pay to test every work out supliment in my home. This would have been thousands of dollars on top of his fee. Thankfully I consulted with attorneys outside of Denton this time and met with Edward. From the very beginning Edward got to work, meeting with district attorneys and calling probation officers to get this sorted out and dismissed! The fees his firm charges are on the higher end, but the work his team will do for you is worth every cent and the time and care he personally applies to his clients is rare and very appreciated. Just the fact that he was the person I consulted with, handled my case, and represented me in court is exactly what you should look for in an attorney to handle one of the most difficult times in your life. As long as it’s possible, and hopefully I won’t ever need to, Edward is my go-to criminal defense attorney.

Excellent Lawyer
I hired Mr. Freiner to represent me on two assault cases without any clue of what he would be able to do for me because I already had a background. I took my chances anyways. He was actually able to get both charges dismissed. I was amazed with his work! I would definitely recommend him to anyone in the same situation I was in. The man knows his business and he will definitely fight for you! You can count on that!

Exceptional Attorney
I hired Mr. Freiner to represent me on four (4) cases, which included two (2) assaults, a resisting arrest and a possession case. Mr. Freiner stayed on top of all the cases and kept me posted on the progress of all cases. He always was prompt and courteous to me and handled the cases well. The end result of his hard work was three (3) dismissals and a time served, with no additional court costs. I would highly recommend Mr. Freiner to anyone who needs an attorney.

First offense
I believe Mr. Freiner got me the best deal I could ask for. Being my first offense he really helped me get what I wanted, he didn't just settle he pushed for something better. I'm very thankful to have gotten Mr. Freiner as my attorney.

Exceptional Representation
I was referred to Mr. Freiner by a friend who actually was his classmate in law school. The charge I had initially received was a dui, but was then reduced down to an obstruction of a highway ( Not represented by Mr. Freiner at the time.) I had a breathalyzer installed in my vehicle for 6 months. I was having no luck with the probation officer on a specific time frame for removal, as well as my original lawyer dropping the ball on a release order. That is when I was put in contact in with Mr. Freiner. I provided him with a basic request, on getting a judges signature that allowed the removal of the breathalyzer from my truck. He facilitated all of it. Worked on my behalf to get that device removed. I am very happy and pleased with the work Mr. Freiner did for me. It took about a week, more or less, but better than having to wait on the powers that be drag their feet on providing me with the correct paperwork. Mr. Freiner has great potential in his field and there is not a doubt in my mind that he will be one of the top lawyers in all of the state of Texas.

Amazing Representation!
Edward did one helluva job in representing me in my case. I was thankful for his legal expertise and guidance. He was extremely prompt in providing me with all the answers to my questions and explaining the legal process. He was also able to secure a "dismissal" for me. His hard work and diligence paid off and for that I am beyond grateful. I would highly recommend Mr. Freiner to all of my friends and associates. He restored my faith in our justice system. Many thanks, JB.
