About Our Firm

Freedom Law, PC


We're a Detroit-area law firm focused on bankruptcy and debt-relief.

Our bankruptcy practice is dedicated to helping our clients with Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy, debt relief, avoiding foreclosure, stopping wage and bank account garnishments, stopping vehicle repossession and seizure, stopping creditor harassment, dealing with IRS and tax debts, and lowering property taxes.


The name “Freedom Law” was chosen because we believe that your legal representation isn’t about an attorney’s name or personality. You choose a bankruptcy attorney because you trust that your attorney is going to work for you personally and will use the law for you—for your betterment; for your freedom.

From its inception, the goal of Freedom Law, PC has been to provide cutting-edge legal expertise with a deeply personal touch. The firm is committed to providing traditional legal representation with modern efficiency and accessibility.  We believe in staying nimble so we can provide you with high-quality representation at a low cost.


​We're conveniently located to support Detroit and the communities of: Clinton Township, Dearborn, Eastpointe, Ferndale, Fraser, the Grosse Pointes, Hamtramck, Harper Woods, Harrison Township, Highland Park, Madison Heights, Melvindale, River Rouge, St. Clair Shores, Sterling Heights, and Warren.
