Mr. Freeman is the lead attorney for the Law Firm Freeman, Hughes, Freeman, LLC. My representation by Mr. Freeman also included the contact and resources of other attorneys and members of his legal staff. All were extremely informative and diligent in the legal services they provided me. I would recommend Mr. Freeman for any family matter.

Very personable and sharp lawyer who really took care of business for me. I was in a really bad place with my wife cheating on me and keeping me away from my kids. On top of that this witch was getting child support and spousal support cause she didn't want to work. Brian kept my spirits high and told me that everything would turn out right. Well he did not let me down, I am finally out of a bad marriage, got joint custody of my kids, they stay with me 3 nights a week and no more spousal support

My company does a mail order business in New Jersey and we have engaged the services of Mr. Freeman for the collection of non-paying accounts. He has done a great job in recovering monies on delinquent accounts and we are now entering our third year working with him. I recommend his services based upon what he has done for my business.

Mr Freeman is a cool, collected lawyer. He listens to client problems and guides the client accordingly. Regarding those cases he has handled for me and friends, we each get the satisfaction of justice and the end of the case.

I choose Brian to represent me in a divorce that my wife filed in NJ. I found him online after going on the web and looking for divorce attorneys in NJ. I found Brian's office and Brian himself to be very professional. I was very befuddled about how the divorce process was in NJ and I was really concerned about being represented by an attorney in another state. Well the case was resolved without me being stressed out. I attribute much of that to being in kept in the loop about everything

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.


Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
