From Client testimonial, January 5, 2011
I’m writing this testimonial on behalf of my attorney John Freeman. I just left federal court today a free man thanks to Mr. Freeman. I was a fugitive for over 30+ years from the federal authorities. I was arrested back in 1978, released on bond and never went back for sentencing for fear of being sent to prison. I contacted Mr. Freeman, because I wanted an attorney that was experienced with federal law, and had contacts in the federal Detroit office. Well let me tell you, I couldn’t have picked a better attorney. Mr. freeman worked as a federal prosecutor in that office for  years before becoming a defense attorney, and he knew everyone there and was respected by all of them from the folks at pre-trial up to the federal judges. I told John my story, and how I wanted to surrender and put this 30 year nightmare behind me. He made me no promises, other than he would work as hard as possible to have a favorable out come in my case. I hired Mr. Freeman that day, and he strongly suggested I surrender the next day to the federal Marshall’s, and that he would be with me all the way through the process. I was scared to death that I would have to return to jail because I had skipped out on my original bond 30+ years ago, and John assured me there was a good chance he could have me back out on a personal bond that same day. Well he delivered, I was released on a 10k personal bond that day and went back to my job the next day.He then went to work on getting the case transferred from another state back to Michigan for sentencing. This was not easy, but he got it done. I went in for sentencing today, and was given 2 years probation with no jail time. Mr. Freeman saved my life, and kept me a free man. I strongly suggest if your in trouble with the law you call him immediately, it will be the most important phone call you can make.Sincerely, John S.
