Richard the Great - An Exceptional Family Law Attorney

Divorce is a difficult life challenge convoluted by a legal process that is largely unknown to us as we attempt to navigate a path to our desired goal - the dissolution of marriage. Due to this convoluted system, it leaves us not knowing what we don't know, so we seek good counsel and expect certain results. Thankfully, I sought the help of Attorney Richard Freed and, due to his exceptional counsel, survived an extremely difficult journey along the tumultuous and chaotic road to divorce. Unfortunately for me, my ex-wife sought guidance from the most greedy and unethical attorney imaginable, attempting to take everything she could at each turn, to include precious time with my son, with the vengeful intent to harm me for finally having the guts to leave our failed marriage after years of co-habitation and misery. It was a battle unlike anything I've ever experienced (and I’ve been through a lot). Along the way, I had to fire two previously retained attorneys who were incapable of handling my case, who had wasted thousands of my dollars and precious time, and who accomplished little of substance in the previous year prior to my discovery of Mr. Freed. During the first meeting with Richard, I knew he was extremely capable and the attorney who could get the divorce finalized ethically, timely and ensure an equitable settlement for all parties, per California family law. From the beginning, he was professional, knowledgeable, experienced, extremely capable, and unlike the others, genuinely cared about helping me through the process, promising to “get it done.” Further, Richard was extremely helpful with child custody matters, where his experience in this field was of tremendous value and really showed. He provided recommendations for child counseling and guidance that helped me navigate the difficult challenges I was facing in dealing with my previously mandated visitation schedule that, up to this point, was being frustrated by my ex-wife at every opportunity. Worse, my son was being manipulated and the frustration of the visitation schedule was causing tremendous strain in my relationship with him. According to Mr. Freed, my case and the people involved were unlike anything he had seen in 27 years. Immediately, he drafted a clear path forward knowing the level of stress I was under and the much-needed help I was desperately seeking, making the personal commitment to see this through to the end. Opposing counsel constantly tried to delay the process, as had been the pattern for months, churning out countless hours for personal gain. Yet, because of his perseverance and expertise, Richard managed to finalize a Marriage Settlement Agreement (MSA) in just six months, in spite of the opposing side not negotiating in good faith and purposely causing delays, my ex-wife avoiding meetings and phone calls, the opposing attorney freezing assets without justification and continuously sending threatening letters to muddy the legal waters and increase billable hours, along with other unethical behavior too lengthy to explain. As the MSA was being finalized, I again saw how invaluable Richard was and the command he had for family law, especially in comparison to the opposing counsel. For example, my ex-wife’s attorney was confused about very simple items in Mr. Freed’s draft settlement agreement and demanded that language be omitted or changed that is basic to all MSAs. Richard painfully guided the settlement process along while exhibiting an impressive depth of knowledge in all areas, especially in that of child custody. Additionally, and equally as important, he was well versed in the financial aspects of the division of marital assets, including taxation, domestic resolution orders, real estate, income and expense declarations, and monthly support estimations. Without doubt, if it weren't for Mr. Freed’s exceptional counsel, I would still be shackled to a horrible woman who tried her best to ruin me. I will forever be indebted to Richard for his counsel and guidance, and certainly can’t thank him enough for all his hard work, perseverance, and dedication. Hiring him was one of the smartest decisions I've ever made.
Best Decision I Ever Made

My divorce was ugly, plain and simple. I married a bully and was a victim of domestic violence. When I left, my ex sought to destroy me with false allegations that I was the abuser leading to temporary restraining orders that prevented me from seeing our child for months. She wanted full legal and physical custody, and wanted to ruin my career and finances. She hired a very well known and expensive attorney. Unfortunately for her, I hired Richard G Freed. The series of events that followed were of surgical precision, with Mr. Freed helping me navigate the complex legal world that I had never been a part of in my entire life. The TRO was dismissed and I got joint physical and legal custody as I wanted. Mr. Freed's strategy and questioning in the courtroom were on point. His language nuanced, firm, and teased out the critical details that revealed the truth behind the lies of my ex and all her witnesses. You never know what the other attorney will say in the courtroom, so you need to have someone on your side with a razor sharp mind, and that comes not just from intelligence but from experience. Richard G Freed is the veteran you want on your side.

Mr. Freed is a BOSS in the courtroom. I was involved in a very contentious child custody case. My ex came from a family of lawyers and she retained one of the best, most experienced, well connected lawyers in all of S. California. Having never been in the courtroom before, I became a nervous wreck and started having anxiety attacks which only further hurt my case. Then I was referred to and retained the legal services of Richard Freed and my situation improved dramatically. He was compassionate, articulate, extremely intelligent, funny, and knew exactly what to do and say in and out of the courtroom to advocate for me and the best interests of my children. Whether negotiating matters outside of court or inside the courtroom, Richard Freed is the prize fighter you want in your corner.

I was introduced to Mr. Freed by a mutual friend. From the moment I met him, I knew my search for a professional attorney that would fight for me was over. My state of mind at the time was fragile from a destructive relationship. Mr. Freed took the time to get to know me. Not only was he professional, but he was kind, compassionate, and truly cared about me and my daughter. Mr. Freed is smart! His ability to read people is extraordinary. He is a dedicated professional that leaves no stone unturned. It's impressive to work with someone that is funny, kind, compassionate, and a bulldog when needed. I highly recommend Mr. Freed to anyone in need of a Family Law Attorney.

I know Richard Freed because he represented me in my family law case. Not only is Mr. Freed a winner and win we did he does so in a very elegant fashion. I thought I was watching Tom Hanks in a few good men. His words are conducted in a manner that other attorney's are not equipped to handle. His arguments are very persuasive and as a law student it was a joy being able to watch such a beast in court. Mr. Freed is a very funny and charismatic individual in and out of the court room and it has been a pleasure getting to know him over the years.
