Eau Claire Bankruptcy Attorney Dan Freund

From talking to many lawyers in Eau Claire (and I have talked to more than 5 lawyers about him) Dan is hands down the most respected lawyer in this field in the Chippewa Valley. – from an on-line client review

Eau Claire bankruptcy lawyer Daniel R. Freund has more than 30 years’ experience developing and implementing smart strategies to help his clients achieve their goals in a cost-effective manner. Other attorneys call upon Mr. Freund as an advisor and consultant on particularly complex or unusual cases.

Now of counsel at Chiristianson & Freund, Attorney Freund has represented debtors, creditors, businesses, banks, credit unions, bankruptcy trustees, consumers, lenders, and farmers.
