    Jonathan S.
    This was my second time retaining Miss Freeman for a family court case and she again showed me that my confidence in her was well placed. I reviewed her after my first case when she was still with her husband’s office and now I say again she is fantastic.
    Rakesh D.
    “There are many attorneys in New Jersey that practice family law, but what really sets me apart is my 15 years in corporate America in an audit setting. I have the ability to marry my audit experience with family law. It’s confidence in the law, but it’s also compassion, negotiation, and the ability to really listen and hear what my clients need.“
