James Robert Freeman Esq.

Sole Practitioner
Phoenixville, Pennsylvania

I am a sole practitioner with 43 years of courtroom experience. I served as Chester County's first full-time District Attorney. When you retain my services I will be the one standing beside you; no one else. You can rest assured I will do everything in my power to guide you safely through the criminal or civil maze that may be confronting you. I have handled thousands of cases and take pride in what I do. I believe I am known to be relentless in my efforts to obtain the best possible disposition for my clients. After 43 years I won't say that I've seen it all but I suggest it would take ingenuity and imagination before I couldn't comment, "Been there, done that."
