AMAZING & Kind Hearted
I was facing 2 charges that could potentially ruin my future. Jessica was so understanding, patient, kind & focused. She always told me stay positive this will all work out in our favor. Even when I was an emotional wreck and couldn't make clear sense of what may happen. Jessie always calmed me with positive vibes and went the extra mile. I highly recommend Jessica Frued and her partners at their firm. Amazing people doing amazing work. Im greatful for all her hard work she put in for me and my family. Not only did we get Not Guilty on both counts, she went the extra mile to help set my future up for success. Thanks Bunches!!! Hopefully I never have to contact a lawyer in my future but if I do Jessica Frued will be my FIRST & ONLY option. Thank You Jessica we are truly greatful for all your hard work. DJ & Tina.

Excellent Attorney
After consulting with a few attorneys, I ultimately decided to hire Jessi Freud to help resolve my double-charge arrest and ticket. Though it was one incident, there were two jurisdictions involved; it was a complicated, multifaceted case that had me stressed out beyond belief. There is such a negative stigma that coincides with people who have criminal convictions on their record, and that was my biggest concern. I was facing this legal bind in the midst of the most successful time of my life, thus far. Having just started my own business, working full time (while applying for more advanced career opportunities), plans of getting my master's degree, and being heavily involved in the community...the thought of these or any future endeavors being jeopardized by this legal slip-up was devastating for me. That being said, it was crucial that I hire the attorney who I felt would be my absolute best bet. Jessi genuinely listened to the concerns and questions I had about my case during the consultation, and continued to support me in that way throughout the entire process. Communication was excellent-the best I have ever experienced with an attorney. I really appreciated the time and consideration she put into communicating with me, as well as the time and diligence she put forth working on my case in general. Despite having a few prior deferred & dismissed arrest charges on my record, she managed to get both current charges (including related ticket) dismissed upon successful completions of deferred periods. I am very happy and satisfied with this outcome, as it has brought so much relief to my life moving forward. It is important to Jessi to make the experience as stress free as possible for her clients, while doing her very best to achieve the most favorable outcome-and that's exactly what she did. Her character is as impressive as her professionalism, and she exceeded my expectations as an attorney. I highly recommend hiring Jessi Freud to represent you.

Thank you, Jessica.
Jessica is intelligent, caring, punctual, professional, thorough and genuine. My case resulted in the best possible outcome because of her, and with the case behind me and my charge dismissed I can move on happily with my life. For that I couldn't thank her enough. Overall, superior. Cassandra

Micheal Soto Case Pos-Marij 2oz and less
Jessica Freud was Commited to getting my Posession of Marijuana case 2oz and under to the lowest she can. She was able to get it down to 1 day walkthrough and $600 fine. She is confident in her work and will follow through with her commitments.

Amazing, Competent, Sympathetic, Knowledgeable, etc.
My partner's sister filed theft charges against me after my partner died. When I moved from her family home where we had lived together for many years, I took our bedroom suite, a love seat and a couple of tables. These were our things that were valued under $1000 by a used furniture specialist. But this small town of 1200 people and TWENTY SIX cops, were quick to have a warrant sworn out - they believed the sister who lives in south Texas and had not been home in 25 years --and I was arrested at my home, my things were taken. Fortunately, I was released immediately but the judge advised I was facing Texas State prison time because they filed felony theft - $3000 to $30000 value. I am 70 years old and had been with my partner on and off over 55 years. I still work at a very responsible position in finance where I could have lost my job - my life as I know it. NONE of the local attorneys would even take my calls - except one. He wanted $1800 to discuss the case. Thru a website, I found Jessica who immediately told me not to worry, that I have no criminal history a jail term was probably out of the question (although she made it clear, she could not promise). Of course I did worry. But she was able to have the charges thrown out - dismissed - and I am eternally grateful. Jessica's motto is that everyone deserves a good attorney; thus, she will work with you on a payment plan. If anyone in Hill County Texas or McLennan County Texas or the surrounding area, needs criminal representation, I beg you to call Jessica Freud. She saved my life, my job and my reputation. She holds a special place in my heart and always will. She is an amazing attorney who should be held up as an example to other attorneys as what a good attorney should really be. Thank you, again - Jessica

Hard working, honest, and sincere
Jessi is not only an amazing lawyer, but just an all around great person. She was with me from the beginning of my legal journey and was able to settle my mind throughout the process (as this was my first time dealing with the legal system), fully explain everything so that I understood what was happening, and also give me realistic expectations of the outcome and timeline. I would recommend her services to anyone who is in need of legal assistance. She was able to streamline the process and get everything settled quickly so that I can work on moving on with my life and leave this incident behind me.

Dependable
Jessi is very energetic and has a great attitude. I missed court and received a bond forfiture. Jessi still managed to get my time from 120 to 70 days. Plus, she got the surcharges waived. Excellent job!

Hands down the BEST Lawyer I've ever had.
Jessi was really awesome to say the least , she not only followed through with my case right off the bat , but got it DISMISSED as well. I had a unlawful DWLI Charge. One month after hiring Jessi , she did everything over and beyond on what she promised. I only wish she was in Dallas so she could be my lawyer for all my needs. Thank you again for everything!

Amazing!
Ms Freud was amazing! Very knowledgeable, she kept me updated on everything that was going going on with my case, made sure I fully understood my options, and helped me find what was most suitable for me. I have already referred one friend who has also had nothing short of an amazing experience working with Jessi! I will continue to recommend her to anyone needing legal representation.

Great Lawyer
My lawyer took her time to explain the in and outs of the legality of my case. She answered all my questions with direct answers and was able to view everything objectively, from the evidence to my defense, and succeeded in making sure I was not wrongfully convicted. I strongly recommend her services to anyone who wants someone in their side who follows through with what they say and act decisively.
