Melissa Boyd Freeman, Esq
Melissa Boyd Freeman, Esq. has been practicing law for more than 17 years, representing clients as an unrelenting advocate for justice in criminal and civil litigation, at bench and jury trials. Born in the South to a father who was a Green Beret in the U.S. Army and mother who worked the family farm, Melissa understands what it means to be part of a working class community which too often considered securing quality legal services as being out of reach. She has spent considerable time making skilled representation accessible to more people, showing an intuitive knack for pre-trial and trial strategy. Beside settlements, some of her notable accomplishments include saving the homes of numerous clients; winning a jury trial in a case that passed an investigating grand jury; and, having a client, who was charged with over twenty criminal counts, acquitted of all charges.
Melissa graduated with Honors from Temple University School of Law with a Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree in Trial Advocacy. Before that, she was awarded a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree from Widener University Delaware Law School, focusing on trial work in an intensive trial advocacy program and year-long externship with a District Attorney’s Office, and an undergraduate degree from Purdue University. She is admitted to practice in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, State of New Jersey, and U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
Melissa’s outside activities include engaging in Cuba missions work, visiting history and science museums and exhibits, camping, hiking and generally spending time in nature. She resides in Radnor Township, Delaware County with her husband and a son who is a senior in high school.
