    Jill was recommended by a co-worker of my father. My case was bizarre and had many large issues that needed to be dealt with in court. Jill demonstrated an amazing amount of knowledge about every little detail of family law and how it related to my case. She also had the ability to be very honest and straight forward with her ideas on how to proceed in a positive way. If any of my friends or family were going through a tough divorce, I would not hesitate to recommend Ms. Frieders! Read less

    Great lawyer with unbelievable knowledge in her field. She helped me with a divorce and custody dispute. She spoke her mind and pulled no punches while communicating with me, glad I have thick skin.

When we would meet it was all business and no sidetrack talking. Wonderful person!! Thanks Read less

    She came to court one day even being very ill. She saved my grandson's life from a road that would have been to nowhere but a dead end.
