His education has provided him with the skills and aptitude to see a problem from all angles, identify key issues, and find creative solutions.

As an attorney with Thomas J. Henry, Mr. Freeman zealously advocates for the interests of clients and strives for the best possible outcomes for those who have been injured due to the negligence of others.
