Our Philosophy

Friel Law is founded on the belief that an attorney should provide their clients legal services with the highest standard of quality and ethics. We don’t believe in taking a high volume of cases to meet a bottom line. Instead, at Friel Law every client gets the time and attention their case deserves. We know our clients by name and take the time to tailor a custom legal strategy to suit their needs. 

Jonathan Friel founded FRIEL LAW in 2020 after more than a decade of experience as a prosecutor in Forsyth County, North Carolina.  He is a graduate of Wake Forest University School of Law and a board-certified specialist in Criminal Law.
