Daniel Freyberg



Daniel Freyberg grew up in Sandusky, Ohio on the shores of Lake Erie, the second of four children.  He was a competitive swimmer from age 8, as were all of his siblings.  He graduated from high school with honors in instrumental music and went on to Wake Forest University in North Carolina, where he majored in Psychology and minored in Education.

After receiving his Bachelor of Arts in 1972, Daniel worked as a counselor at a juvenile offender treatment center, spent several years as Director of a Half-Way House for juvenile offenders, then began his career in the courts as an Intake Officer of the Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court in Roanoke, Virginia.  During his 17 years working for the J & DR court, Mr. Freyberg performed a wide variety of professional services.  As an Intake Officer, he drafted pleadings in juvenile criminal, family court, child abuse and neglect, and domestic violence matters.  He served as a juvenile magistrate, making decisions regarding detention or release of arrested juveniles, regarding removal of children from abusive parents, and regarding the issuance of protective orders.  In addition, he served as a crisis family counselor, he created and conducted juvenile diversion programs, and he served as probation officer.  He was often called upon for public speaking engagements to educate and inform about the services of the J & DR court. 

In 1994, Mr. Freyberg took early retirement from the Virginia court system and embarked on a new career as an attorney.  He moved with his Wife and 2 elementary aged children to Ada, Ohio and enrolled in Ohio Northern University Pettit College of Law.  At ONU, Mr. Freyberg was an Associate Editor of Law Review, received numerous Book Awards, was published in Law Review, and graduated "with Distinction".

After law school, Mr. Freyberg moved with his family to Brevard County, Florida and began his career as a family attorney in 1997.  Since that time, he has represented scores of men and women in Family Law matters.  Mr. Freyberg has constantly sought to improve his performance in order to be prepared for the challenges facing his clients. He keeps pace with the latest innovations in the delivery of legal services by continually investing in training and technology.  He has regularly been called upon for speaking engagements to educate the public about divorce and family law processes, and about the Collaborative Law process.  His work environment is based on diligent work effort, community involvement and a commitment to the profession.

To expand his services to his clients, Mr. Freyberg is a trained and experienced practitioner of Collaborative Law.  In 2012, he became a Certified Supreme Court Family Mediator, and in addition to his litigation practice, Mr. Freyberg offers his service as mediator for divorcing parties, whether or not they are represented by attorneys.  Mr. Freyberg is a court appointed Guardian Ad Litem in family cases, wherein he utilizes his long experience to evaluate the best interests of children and make recommendations to the Judge or General Magistrate regarding Parental Responsibility, Timesharing and other matters related to the children of the parties.
