    I have been lucky enough to see Dave Frees speak several times on the topic of persuasive communication. Each time he has been very funny and educational. Where I have seen him speak, his presentation has always been the highlight of the conference. He engages his audience (yes, I just gave that stranger a massage) and leaves them with tangible tips they can implement in both business and personal communication. I highly recommend Dave Frees as a speaker.    Dave Frees, JD

  • David as counsel for executives of large companies doing sophisticated estate planning....

    “I am a financial and investment planner, working primarily with executives at large corporations. In this work, I have had occasion to need an estate planning attorney in his area on several occasions. I have recommended David to several clients, and I, and my clients, have been very impressed with his services. As a starting point, he knows his stuff as well as anyone, and proactively inserts recommendations that neither I nor the client may have considered. More importantly, he is a real person who connects with clients in a personal way. He cares about them, and it shows. I have never received a complaint from a client about the service, his fees, his demeanor, or his timeliness. On the contrary, all comments have been positive in all regards.” April 28, 2008 Douglas MacGray, J.D., C.F.P., Senior Vice President, Financial Planning, EGE Advisors, Ltd.

  • " I have relied on David M Frees III's advice to make critical decisions regarding my family's wealth and..."

    I have relied on David's legal advice to make critical decisions on handling family wealth and making appropriate decisions for my family's future. David practices in the areas of wills, trusts and estates. But beyond his specific knowledge, he's an outstanding problem-solver, who helped me sort through some complex planning issues. Additionally, he is superior to every other attorney -- in fact, every other professional -- I've ever used. He inspires trust, and works effectively to form the kind of rapport needed to get the kind of information you're typically providing to someone dealing with your will, trusts and estate planning issues. He is thorough, and he guided me through some challenging decisions. He is so effective at discussion available solutions and weighing the pros and cons, that when I finally made decisions, I was able to put those issues to rest without the kind of second-guessing or reconsideration that can occur if you don't have expert help. David is not just an outstanding attorney (recognized in the "Best of" issue of our regional magazine), he's an amazing human being as well. Those are difficult to find in any field. - Dr. David Weiman, Wynnewood, PA.
