FIGHTING FOR THE AVERAGE JOE®. REPRESENTING INJURED WORKERS THROUGHOUT SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA.

Welcome to my profile. I hope that you will feel free to contact me personally and ask me any legal questions you may have. I try to answer all phone calls and e-mails within one business day.


---

I attended Biola University (La Mirada, CA) from 1999 to 2002, graduating with a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) in Computer Science Information Systems (Computer Programming and Business). After college, I spent two years working with computers and technology; it was during this time I decided to pursue an exciting career in law.

 

After leaving a career in the technology industry, I attended Whittier Law School (Costa Mesa, CA) from 2004 to 2007. I focused on the field of intellectual property (Copyrights, Trademarks, and Patents) and on criminal prosecution. I enjoyed a year working for the Orange County District Attorney's Office as a Certified Law Clerk.

 

I am dedicated to helping hard-working individuals exercise their legal rights against the big and powerful insurance industry and governmental entities. My trademark is "fighting for the Average Joe."

He will give you peace of mind when your world is upside down!
I can not stand attorneys or the system, I guess you could say I have no faith. I contacted Brian in desperation while trying to get a hold of a deadbeat beat attorney. Brian was very informative, he listened to me and by the end of our phone call I asked him to please help me and take over my case. He has not let me down. He returns my phone calls, answers my emails and keeps me up to date every couple of days. I couldn't ask for a better person to represent me and I would recommend him to anyone! He cares about people and he fights for you. I am so, so, so thankful and you will be too!

A WC Lawyer You Can Trust On
I strongly recommended this Attorney office for your Workers Comp need. I am very satisfied with what my Attorney Brian Freeman and his assistants got for me in my WC case. You can trust him 100%. He is not only very friendly and answering any questions I had, but also very experienced, professional, considerate and thoughtful in many details in your favor when he handled my WC case. Most of us, ordinary people don't have much experienced how a WC case develops. Particularly, my work injury was not a broken arm or leg, but I had a injury in my heart by the stress of my overloaded work. I realized later that I need to file a WC claim after couple of ER visits because of my damaged heart, but I had no idea how to proceed. I felt very lucky to find and have Attorney Brian filed my WC claim and get his guidance in every step during my WC claim.

Above and Beyond
I have worked with Mr Freeman for 6 yrs. He and his staff are professional and courteous long after the case has ended. Mr Freeman found and settled (3) three extra Cash and benefits settlements after other attorneys walked away from my case. Mr. Freeman knows Workers Comp inside and out.

Excellent service
He was willing to accept my case from a attorney that I was very unhappy with. Mr Freeman and Holly made me feel that they cared, even after my case was settled I received a call which I wasn't expecting from a counseling center which I was told that Mr Freeman office had asked them to call me in regards to retraining. I regret not finding them from day one. I would like to thank them once again. No complaints at all.

Best decision made for the situation I was in.
Your undoubtedly reading reviews because you are on the hunt for an attorney to represent you throughout one of the most stressful times in your life. In 2015 I sustained a life changing injury while working. It was truly challenging to get through this process, which lead me to explore the idea of obtaining an attorney. I am honestly blessed to have acquired Mr. Brian Freeman and his staff. Communication and correspondence are extremely important to me in every aspect of my life. Brian and his staff kept me informed every step of the way, and response times were efficient. His competency level was more than I anticipated. Leaving your case in the hands of another individual is a horrifying thought and a big decision. Brian reiterated that he specialized in this form of law, and he proved himself as the case went on. The entire time, it was apparent that Brian had the best interest of my future medical care and expenses. It is very important that you find an attorney who is upfront and honest with your case. Brian did just that! The biggest mistake you could do is find an attorney who just wants to make that buck, say the right things, and not follow through. He was prepared in taking every and all steps to fight for me. What I appreciate the most through this entire process, was the attentiveness Brian showed me during this stressful chapter in my life. Because of Brian and his staff, I am able to receive the medical treatment workers comp refused to provide me, have the opportunity to be retrained in another profession, and slowly work towards returning to the life I deserve to live. I truly appreciate everything that Brian and his staff have done for me. Words cannot express my gratitude in his dedication and efforts in my case. My case was long and drawn out and not by the hand of Brian or his staff. It’s a snag in the worker’s compensation system and Brian fought tooth and nail for me. If it wasn’t for his determination, knowledge, and faith in me, I honestly don’t know where I would be today. I personally recommend Brian as an attorney to guide you during such a painful time in your life.

I'm tough to deal with but Brian never made me feel like I was.
I went to Brian for a shoulder injury that was a result of an assault at my job. Brian made me feel at ease right away and let me know that he would be able to help me. I worked for a very difficult company that was not easy to deal with as far as workers compensation goes. He made me feel 100% the whole time. I knew exactly what was going on, what the next steps were, in any time I had a question he answered it. I am often not an easy person to deal with as far as my expectations are always very very high. He exceeded my expectations.

Excellent Attorney
Our experience before hiring Brian was a horror show! We were given the run-around, lied to and received zero compensation. Once we hired Brian all that changed. The insurance company still tried the run-around, but Brian quickly responded and turned things around. Once Brian was on the case, things started moving in the right direction. He always communicated with us every step of the way and got the proper results for us. We cannot express how much we appreciated both Brian and his staff for their excellent communication and the wonderful results.

I recommend Attorney Brian Wyld Freeman because there's nothing to big or small that he can't handle. Thank you Mr. Freeman for the high quality service i was provided with.

Brian Freeman
If I could give more stars I would, Brian will fight the good fight for you. I am finding that the workers compensation insurance carrier is doing everything they can to devalue my case when I sustained a serious back, and neck injuries at work. It is comforting to know with all the hurdles and despicable behavior I am encountering from this insurance carrier, that I have Brian fighting for me all the way. I have a long way to go before this case is resolved fairly - but I have confidence in his representation of my case.

Excellent Experienced Workman's Comp Attorney
Brian took my case when I wasn't sure I had one. He and his staff answered all my emails and calls, keeping me always updated. When negotiations occurred, his experience led to an acceptable settlement. Highly recommend for any and all workman's compensation cases.

Brian Freeman is an honest, hard working lawyer, I am so glad he is on my side. My case is complicated and the adjuster difficult, yet Mr Freeman gets things taken care of for me. I could not ask for a harder working attorney, this has been an uphill fight, yet he doesn't give up. Thanks for all of your hard work and good ideas.

Lucky to have hired Brian Freeman.
Brian is absolutely awesome. I spoke to quite a few lawyers when it came to my back injury case and not one of them made me feel as peaceful as he did. He was the only one to show genuine compassion,care,and concern. He took on my case even though it was admittedly a very difficult case to take on. He kept me up to date every step of the way and would take the time to explain every option we had . At no point did I feel that he was dragging his feet or not paying attention, which is an issue I've seen of other workers compensation lawyers when looking at online reviews. Every time I had a question he, and his assistant Andrea, were quick to respond via email or phone and ensure that they addressed everything they had. He helped me with winning my case while everyone else either turned me away, talked down to me, told me I wouldn't win, or all three. I truly felt blessed to have had him as my attorney. I highly suggest that if you have a workers compensation case then you choose Brian Freeman.

great experience
Brian just handled a case for me where an ex employee filed a false claim with the "Labor Board". He was very through while preparing the case and kept me up to speed all the way through the process. When we went to the hearing, Brian was well prepared. He had a folder for the judge with everything separated with each item to be presented as evidence. He was very involved during the hearing and kept the Plaintiff from entering evidence that didn't pertain to our case and I think the judge was also very pleased with how he handled himself throughout the hearing. If this case was to be appealed, I would hesitate to use Brian again. I was totally satisfied with the service he provided
