A native of Southern California, Freda joins Berenji & Associates after having spent nearly a decade studying and practicing law on the East Coast.
Freda was awarded a scholarship to attend law school at Northeastern University School of Law in Boston, after earning her bachelor’s degree there with honors. While in law school, she was chosen to clerk at a Boston-based law firm, a civil legal aid organization, and multiple public defender offices. She was also selected to serve as a teaching assistant to two professors specializing in property law and criminal justice.
Through these experiences and her studies, she became passionate about seeking justice for people through the legal system, and upon graduating she worked as a criminal defense attorney at the New Hampshire Public Defender’s Office. There, she zealously represented hundreds of adult and juvenile clients charged with felonies and misdemeanors in criminal and family court, further enhancing her strong litigation and negotiation skills. This experience afforded her a unique perspective on family law issues, and led her to join our practice where she knew she’d be able to help clients reach successful resolutions of their family law issues.
As a defense attorney, Freda offered her clients compassion and peace of mind during what was often the most difficult time in their lives, and she offers the same to clients and their families at Berenji & Associates.
