As the founding partner of Freeman Law Firm in Tacoma, my path to law was driven by a deep commitment to justice. After graduating cum laude from Seattle University School of Law, I embarked on a career that has spanned from prosecuting in Tacoma to defending clients across the U.S. in federal courts. My practice has evolved over the years, leading me to focus on personal injury law, where I've found my true calling in helping those harmed by others' negligence.

My experience is diverse, from handling contentious shareholder disputes to advocating for individuals facing catastrophic injuries. This journey has taken me from local courtrooms to the United States Supreme Court, arguing cases that have shaped the law and protected individual rights.

Transitioning to personal injury was a natural progression for me, fueled by a desire to make a tangible difference in people's lives. It's here that I've been able to apply my extensive trial experience and passion for advocacy most effectively. Whether negotiating settlements or arguing in court, my goal is always to secure the best possible outcome for my clients, allowing them to focus on recovery while I handle the legal complexities.

To those seeking legal representation, know that at Freeman Law Firm, you'll find a team dedicated to your cause, ready to fight for your rights with compassion, expertise, and unwavering support. Your journey to justice starts with us.

I plan to use Spencer's services myself
I contacted Spencer after he was referred to me and was thoroughly impressed with the way he handles himself and conducts his business. I spoke with a few different lawyers about the legal issue at hand and Spencer was by for the most impressive to me.
