"Having worked at plenty of law firms in my life, I know exactly what to look for when hiring an attorney. Mr. Freire has all the qualities you want for an attorney. Smart and honest, Mr. Freire gave me a free consultation of over 25 minutes and was extremely helpful. In the end I decided bankruptcy was not the right option for me but Mr. Freire was honest and did not try to sell me. I never felt like I was just a number in this law firm, something that is really important for me. Here they actually care about you as their client. I definitely recommend Mr. Freire. If I ever need legal advice again that’s who I’m calling. 10 out of 10"
