David represented me in a case in Cook County Domestic Violence Court and got it dismissed. This did not involve any family abuse - many cases get sent there involving neighbors, etc..
I observed that David had remarkably positive relationships with every judge and their staffs and knew how to talk to them as individuals. In a brief pre-trial meeting long after the case was opened but heard, I learned that David retained a masterful memory and command of my case far better than my own (even when he had a bad flu), even though I took this very seriously. In that pre-trial meeting, I learned that David knew exactly how the trial would go based on his mastery of the law and his knowledge of the judge. It went "exactly" as he expected (but refrained from "predicting").
I learned that David wouldn't offer any expectations - David never "Sold himself". David knew the EXACT "play by play" of the interaction between all sides in court but always sided on the side of caution with me. David is incredibly responsive to emails and text - even sometimes when it was not important. David will not "hold your hand". Instead, David will tell you "don't talk, let me do the talking". It went exactly as he said. Just trust David Freidberg. I will always trust David.
"I could not be happier with the results..."
Client Review: I hired David Freidberg to help me out with my case in Cook County, IL. I found David to be very experienced and knowledgeable on the law, the legal system and process, and the people involved. He helped me to fully understand the situation, explained the law, talked me through each step of the process, and discussed with me the likely outcome. He knew what was important and what was not, he planned ahead, and he built a strong defense.
I was found "not guilty" of the charge against me, and with David's help all records were subsequently expunged. I could not be happier with the results that David helped me to achieve, and though I do not plan to have legal issues in the future, I would absolutely use him again and highly recommend him to a friend or family member if the need were ever to arise.
"Gun charged expunged..."
Client Review: My Amazing Attorney David Freidberg honestly made me the happiest man in the world. He took huge burden off my back after 16 years of struggle with my gun charge. I contacted several lawyers they all turned me down and said it's impossible to remove my felony gun charge that hunted me for 16 yrs. I lost all hope just another black brotha with a felony gun charge. Until I was referred to Attorney David F. He made my dream come true I actually cried. I am now an armed security guard working for my own security company. Now I can hold my head up high after every attorney and police officer let me down....thanks again David F from bottom of my heart. These are my own feelings and words.
"Gun Conviction Vacated!"
Client Review: I really want to thank you so so much for helping me. You have no idea how happy I am to have my felony and record expunged. Two days ago my FOID CARD was activated yes yes yes, now I'm able to take the conceal and carry class. Thank you!
"I am very happy that I used the Law Offices of David L. Freidberg."
Client Review: I highly recommend his services for any problems one may run into. He is honest, straightforward and very reliable. When you work with David, you leave the worry and stress behind. Overall the experience was top notch and I recommend everyone to go to him in the Chicagoland area.
"My son and I are so greatful for Mr.Freidberg and what he has done"
Client Review: My oldest son got in a bit of trouble...theft case, and violated probation for which he was taken into custody. I live in Atlanta and knew he needed help...I did a search for criminal defense attorneys in Chicago and clicked on Mr.Freidberg's site. His reviews were amazing. Through chat talk I gave my information and why I needed to hire an attorney and it was not even an hour later, Mr.Freidberg was in contact. I explained my son's case to him and throughout our conversation I just knew he was the one for my son. He is very professional, non-judgmental and stands behind his word. He was able to get my son out of jail, off probation, and put a very long and needed end to this case! All of this took place in less than 2 weeks. Mr.Freidberg kept me informed of the happenings throughout the process, which is important to any Mom.
Client Review: Mr. Freidberg is a an outstanding communicator, user of technology and practitioner of law. He clearly collects the facts of the case, requires no unnecessary legwork from the client and is thorough and instructive with his communications. In an age where legal work has been commoditized, Mr. Freidberg is a welcome personal touch.
"This is your Guy - 200% Honest and on the Ball"
Client Review: After vetting several attorneys, when I first spoke with David on the phone I knew he was the one I wanted to work with. David is an active listener who demonstrates incredible fluency and prowess navigating the courts - I had 100% confidence in him throughout my experience, the case settled in my favor and I couldn't have done it without him. Also it doesn't hurt that he's funny in what can be tenuous situations:)
Hire him - you'll be thrilled you did.
"David is the Best and Worth Every Penny!"
Client Review: David represented me in a case where someone was making false allegations. This was my first time ever being in a court room or having a lawyer. I was incredibly nervous and scared. I didn't know what to do.
I contacted a couple of lawyers. However as soon as I spoke to David I knew he was the right lawyer. He knows the ins and outs of laws specifically in regards to Orders of Protection. He really knows his stuff. He explained everything to me in a way I could understand. There are some attorneys that are half what David charges but HE IS WORTH EVERY PENNY! I am so glad I had him to represent me. He truly fights for his clients. He explained to me the worst and best case scenario. He told me based on his experience what he thought would happen and what he was going to do in court. And it went 100% the way he said it would. He prepped me every step of the way. Anytime i called or texted he answered immediately.
If you can see him in action in a court room you will be impressed. Those who were there all commented he was incredibly sharp and and amazing at his job.
Needless to say we WON the case. I can say with confidence that if I had not had David represent me I likely would have lost . I wouldn't have know even where to go or what to say.
If you need a lawyer to fight again OPs David is who you should call. He will be representing me from here on out with anything.
Client Review: My family and I were impressed by Mr. Freidberg when we contacted him.He was prompt to respond.Then we were more impressed after we hired him.He was able to get my son out of false domestic abuse claim.He was honest,compassionate and reasonable.
"An Absolutely Great Lawyer with a Caring Heart"
Posted by James:My wife and I hired David Freidberg to help our son who was accused of serious felony crimes. From the moment that he was on the case, he did fantastic work. He rearranged his schedule multiple times to make last-minute hearings that were schedule in my son's case. David even made the bail hearing which was scheduled at the last minute the night before. He argued extremely hard for my son and always tried to make sure the judge did the right thing. To this day, he always immediately gets back to my son anytime he has a question about anything. We are very grateful for all David has done on this case and would highly recommend him to anyone who faces a serious case in the Cook County Court system.
"David is truly the best"
Client Review: He is worth every penny. I am so glad I found him. There are lawyers that are cheaper but you will not get the level of expertise and knowledge he has. He is incredibly knowledgeable, professional and great at his job. He knows the ins and out of laws. He walked me and my family through every steps. He answered every question, every text and every call. Needles to say we won. Things went exactly the way he said it would. Multiple people in the court room commented that my lawyer was awesome and it is true. If i had to spend the money a million times it would be worth it and I would ALWAYS call David. he will be my attorney going forward and will be the only one i trust who will truly fight for me. David is the best. He fights for his clients and he wins.

"Thank you David."
Posted by Matt:An angry ex-girlfriend filed for an order of protection against me. We had not communicated for about 4 months prior. David helped me stay calm and handle the situation appropriately. It was very stressful and unsettling to me, I had never been in a situation like this. David was pleasant, funny and confident. In the end the judge ruled in my favor. Thank you David for helping me understand the system.
"I HIGHLY recommend David Freidberg for any criminal defense cases."
Posted by Sandra:I was not yet charged with a crime, but I was aware that a detective was in the investigative phase. My situation had the potential to land me in court faced with burglary, identity theft and fraud so I was looking for a criminal defense attorney with years of experience and a track record of success. I also wanted someone approachable, someone I felt comfortable with. Lawyers oftentimes don't have the best reputations and can come off as curt, even offensive. I contacted several attorneys before retaining David Freidberg and let me assure you, it was the right and best decision. No one explained the possible scenarios more thoroughly, no one was more patient, accessible and personable than David. He contacted the detective on my behalf and I was able to avoid questioning. Since this was a first time offense for me, David was able to work out a deal where I paid retribution without being charged and avoid court all together. It was the absolute best case scenario and resulted in the file being “cleared exceptionally”. I HIGHLY recommend David Freidberg for any criminal defense cases.
"I would not hesitate to recommend him anytime."
Posted by BJ:David Freidberg is a very knowledgeable and honest individual. He always provides clients with his absolute best and has a very pleasant disposition combined with a friendly demeanor. David is extremely thorough with all the work he does and exhibits a high degree of professionalism and compassion for other people. I would not hesitate to recommend him anytime.
"I don't know what I would have done without him."
Posted by Brett:A few weeks ago I was truly at the end and on the brink in life. Things were absolutely terrible. I had a case dismissed, but the police refused to return any of my property and even served me with search warrants. I though there was no hope of ever getting my things back unless through divine intervention. Well, that intervention came in the form of a lawyer: David Freidberg. He worked tirelessly making phone calls to the Supervisors at the State's Attorneys Office, spoke with the judge who issued the warrant, and even went to Court for me three days in a row. David was determined not to give up until he had a court order for the return of all my property. He was successful in getting the Judge to sign the order, and I was able to get all my property back from the police department. I don't know what I would have done without him. Thanks so much, David!
"Fantastic Attorney With Great Reputation and Solid Work Ethic"
Posted by A Client:I retained Mr. Freidberg to represent me on a disorderly conduct charge. From the very beginning, he took my calls right away and assured me the case was absolutely ridiculous and should have never been filed. He showed up to court prepared and demanded an early trial date at our first court appearance. When it came to the day of trial, the State was not prepared to proceed, so Mr. Freidberg talked them into dismissing the charge. Throughout the process, he always returned calls and emails promptly and was open to reviewing all documents and evidence I gave to him. He is a genuine professional who fights hard and wants to win his cases, not simply plead clients guilty all day long as many other attorneys have reputations for doing. I would strongly recommend David Freidberg to any person facing criminal charges. I am very thankful for all his help.

Literally, he would respond within minutes to all of us. To me, that was the most remarkable thing about working with David.

Client Review: I retained Attorney David Freidberg to file a petition to expunge/seal on my behalf in the Cook County Circuit Court. He immediately filed the petition and worked diligently to help me with my legal needs and questions during the pendency of my case. I frequently had many questions for Attorney Freidberg, and he always replied back promptly to address my concerns. He won my case as the Judge granted my petition to seal the arrest record. Mr. Freidberg did an excellent job on this case, and my only regret is that I did not find him earlier to assist me with another legal matter. He is very professional, knowledgeable about the inner workings of the Cook County Courts and its judges, and seeks the best possible outcome for his clients. From my experience, I would strongly recommend David Freidberg in the area of criminal law. In a criminal justice system that makes little sense and is already stacked against innocent people, it helps to have a lawyer who will truly fight for the client.

"He is always there when you need him most"
Posted by Sathish: No matter how naive or experienced you are in dealing with court cases, your attorney will decide the fate of your case and when you have David as your attorney, you can be totally assured of leaving all your worries at the bay from the time he picks the case. He is charismatic, approachable, smart, savant, client centered and more importantly he is always there when you need him most. Even if you haven't done enough research about him, you will know he is the right attorney not just by the sheer confidence he speaks to you about the case but also by the way he approaches and makes the entire process simple + transparent + seamless + effortless. Being totally naive in one of my families case, I ended up with David by sheer luck and from then on I didn't have to look back. I was totally awed by the response time I could get from him no matter whatever method I chose to reach him ( eMail + SMS + Call + In Person), no matter whatever time of day I pinged him. To end my review, all I can say is go with David if you are looking for Smart + Reliable + Trust-worthy + Approachable attorney to make your case look simple + effortless + winnable + worriless.

"David is a phenomenal lawyer and his character speaks wonders"
Posted by Michelle Kyser:My family and I came to Chicago on vacation from Alabama. My fiancé was unaware of the new gun laws in Illinois. So naturally he brought his pistol with him we drove, and his pistol is legally registered to him and he has a license to carry. Unaware of the new laws my fiancé got caught with the pistol in the center console of the vehicle. He spent our whole vacation on California St. However, the week ended on a happy note all due to Mr. David Freidberg. He researched cases similar to my husband and pointed out things in the gun laws that other attorneys were unaware of and got my husband's case thrown out. He even keeps in contact with me and my family, even though the case is over. If you ever get in any legal trouble Mr. David Freidberg is the man to contact especially if you want someone professional, knowledgeable, funny, charismatic, and just all around a good person

"Many Thanks To An Attorney, You Can Trust 100%"
Posted by a DUI Client:I had no experience at all dealing with the court system and the issues surrounding having someone you love locked up in jail. I happened to be up late the night my boyfriend was arrested, worried sick, googled for a lawyer dealing with probabtion violations, and David's name popped up, along with a long list of others. I read his reviews and thought I have nothing to lose by sending him an e-mail. I had a response in less than 30 minutes on a Friday night at 10PM.
We talked the next morning and he assured me he would do all he could to get him out of jail. I had many questions and concerns and David ALWAYS called me back quickly or sent me a text or e-mail. He was perfect in court. He was polished, positive, respectful, and punctual. I have never heard a judge say out loud in court to anyone, you are lucky to have had such a great lawyer! I was stunned, but truth, he did an outstanding job and I am forever grateful for his time and expertise. I would recommend David to any one of my friends.
