Richard Freed was able to accomplish the impossible for me! He is an attorney who has common sense, incredible skill, and the ability to put it all together in a winning way. He knows the law, and makes sure that his client is treated fairly. No messing around. Richard assisted me in collecting past due child support in a way that was fair and reasonable to all parties, while getting more than I ever imagined was humanly possible to obtain.

I had the good fortune to have Mr. Richard Freed as my attorney in a divorce and child custody court case. While my former spouse pursued several avenues that required multiple court appearances, Mr. Freed won each time that we went to court. He gained better-than-satisfactory support and division of property decisions for me and my son. His representation and legal guidance made significant positive impacts on both my own and my son’s lives. He successfully kept my son in the high school where he played four sports each year and remained with the friends he still keeps in close contact with today. I am certain that this solid foundation helped him to complete college and onto a promising career in the US Navy. (E-6 in slightly over four years.) I frequently hear stories about the problems children have when being moved into unfamiliar schools late in their high school years. Mr. Freed helped keep us together and close to the family my son grew up with. This gave me great piece of mind especially as I was deployed to Kuwait and Iraq during part of that time. This in-turn benefitted my Army career. I actually enjoyed sitting with him as we got through those tense court appearances. I recommend him without reservation.

Mr. Freed is an amazing Attroney. I was skeptical of trusting anyone to fight my custody battle for me. After searching and calling countless attorneys I came across Mr. Freed. He was the only Attroney that took his time to talk to me immediately. I decided to hire him and am so glad I did. 5 years of constant court hearings for custody over my precious daughter and the fear of having my daughter put into the wrong hands, and now I have sole custody with no chance of danger to my child. Mr. Freed took my case very seriously, and at the same time made me feel extremely comfortable and I was able to trust him to fight for the custody of my daughter. My case involved sexual deviance involving young girls done by the father of my child, and 3 years since the last time my daughters father saw her. Her father was asking for her to leave state and visit him in Pa basically anytime my daughter was not in school. I shared my fears with my wonderful Attroney and he fought for full physical and legal custody with stipulations of psychological evaluations for sexual deviance, treatment, and supervised visitation. Before even stepping foot in the court room Mr. Freed had the opposing side agreeing to all the stipulations. He won all that we were fighting for and then some. He also was able to make it where my daughters father is not aloud to take my daughter out of San Diego county and from here out the only court we can have hearings regarding custody of my daughter at is the one which this hearing was at. I am so incredibly thankful for Mr. Freed and his associates! This man knows his stuff inside and out and he refuses to lose. While he refuses to lose, and takes great care with the cases he works on he has an amazing personality as well. I have honestly never seen an Attroney like him. I highly recommend Mr. Freed to anyone who needs an Attroney for a custody battle! The man is brilliant, honest, he doesn't back down, and I'm glad I had him on my side !!!!!
