I had the pleasure of working with Mark Freeman and I couldn't be more satisfied. Mr. Freeman was always professional and genuinely cared about my case. His paralegal Charles is awesome. I highly recommend Mr. Freeman to anyone seeking legal assistance.

Joey is the best criminal matter lawyer in Nashville! He got everything dismissed after months of pain and nervousness and I was so glad I chose him to represent me. Joey knows exactly what he's doing and continues to be #1. If you're looking for the best, Joey Fuson is your guy!

Working with Joe and his team was nothing short of perfection. Their attention to detail and responsiveness was so wonderful and we couldn't of asked for more from them not to mention the results they provided.

Nick, Joey and Sarah were superb. Freeman & Fuson were recommended to me by an attorney friend of mine, and they assisted me in a bizarre set of personal circumstances. Professional, kind, and helpful. Would definitely recommend Nick who represented me in court. Thanks for the assist!

My brief time with Carolanne was a wonderful experience. In such a challenging time, and the only time I've ever gone through something like this, I could not have had better counsel. She's a blessing in my life.

I want to take this occasion to thank Joey Fuson for his excellent and professional abilities that he fully demonstrated when he represented me in court. Joey had been referred to me by a law firm that I highly respected. When I first met Joey, I knew that he was the right attorney for me. You can tell a lot about a person by the way they walk. Joey walks with both "purpose and confidence." Joey exhibited his confidence in the courtroom. It can truthfully be said that Joey doggedly subpoenaed the truth until he got it. It took two subpoenas, but Joey finally got the evidence that proved my innocence. This final twice-subpoenaed evidence provided the perfect "Perry Mason" ending for my preliminary hearing. I wholeheartedly believe that Joey Fuson is an attorney that will, as his "starting point," make certain that the penalty that you pay, is nothing more than what is proportionate to your transgression of the law. Joey Fuson was the perfect advocate for me, and I believe that he will be your best advocate, no matter what your current circumstances are. Joey cleared my name and helped restore my freedom to me, so that I am now able live my life to the fullest.

Just want to say Nick Shculenburg, took great care of me and I cannot say enough good things. Got my ticket completely taken care of, Nicks the man. Thanks again.

- John G.

We won, Nick was so amazing and very down to earth. He made me feel very welcomed but also insured that other bad side of things. We went into the court room and he took off and never looked back. Nick was phenomenal.

Joey is simply excellent. Sarah is as well. While some may say it's a shame that excellent criminal defense attorneys and firms are busier than they should be defending decent people, Joey and Sarah are always outstanding. These are the people you want handling your case, for every reason that so many have mentioned in the large volume of testimonials. Joey is skillful, brilliant, dependable, connected, diligent, strategic, effective, focused, and accessible - and the list goes on and on. Sarah is amazingly smart, impeccably detail oriented, highly organized, positive, efficient, and incredibly talented at prioritization to just somehow get all the things done - big and small. I do not have the time or space to share all of their applicable qualities here. Have grace when reaching out, as some have shared, Joey and the team are busy and for very good reason - his and his team's dedication to every case and client. They WILL show up for you and earn you the most ideal results possible. If you are in need of the best, I recommend that you do NOT hesitate to engage Joey and this firm.

I hired Joey to represent a family member for a legal matter. He explained the legal process and what steps he would take in representing us. He immediately began working with the court and others involved to bring a quick and favorable resolution to the case. He did everything he said he would do and more. He went above and beyond our expectations. I would highly recommend him for his knowledge, professionalism, dedication and energy that he put into our case.

- C. B.

Words can't express the gratitude I have for Joey Fuson and Sarah. Sarah answered all our questions, and guided us through the legal process. Joey went above and beyond our expectations, and got us immediate results for our situation. Thank you, Thank you!

- Mary

I hired Joey as my lawyer in a criminal case I was facing. From the initial first meeting with Joey, he was very helpful, caring and understanding of the situation. Joey, as well as the staff, were always quick to respond back and help in any way they could. I can't say enough good things about their office, and Joey as a lawyer and person. He is amazing. I recommend anyone facing charges or needing help to hire Joey.

- Sara

February 22, 2023

We had a great experience working with Joseph Fuson and his team. Our case was handled professionally, helpfully and resolved fairly. If we had the need to hire a trial lawyer in the future we would definitely work with Joseph Fuson again, and recommend him to anyone who needed that service.

I worked with Nick Schulenburg on a matter in which we could not reach a resolution. Through his persistence and tactfulness, we were able to close the matter with exactly what we had asked for on day one. Nick was attentive to our needs and made sure every detail was handled well and with finesse. Should a need arise in the future, I would not hesitate to work with Nick Schulenburg again.

- T. Wallace

Nick Schulenberg was so great to work with. So easy to talk to and reassured me when I needed comfort. Guided me the whole way and had my case be dismissed! I cannot thank him enough.

As an Empath I can confirm for fact and truth that Mr. Fuson is genius at what he does. Worth every penny. I've learned in life, that, Like attracts like, which makes sense with the hard work and support of his paralegal & everyone I've met at the firm. They display an unequivocal level of grace and integrity that money simply cannot buy. -Thank you Mr. Fuson!

For the same fee as the other so called "good atty's", Joey takes extra time to gather the facts, VERY thoroughly; explain your options, and keep you informed about EXACTLY what to expect, from day one, non -stop, and ongoing. Additionally, his staff, Specifically Sarah, Katy, and Nick can 'tolerate', listen, even guide you through your "melt downs" and advise you on how to best handle and Permanently RESOLVE Your individual case!

- Melanie J.

November 27, 2022

Really appreciate all of your assistance over the past few months. Situations such as these are stressful and never ideal-especially when you feel you've been wrongfully accused. From the beginning, you assured me that my feelings were warranted and that we had a strong case. Can't thank you enough for your expertise, guidance, and willingness to fight for me throughout the process!

I was facing a dui charge that did not look good at all. The options weren't looking good for us, so we kept waiting and searching for the break we needed. We waited it out and Joey got the charge completely dropped and removed off my record. I'm very happy with his services and dedication to helping me.

I have been a client of Joey Fuson for three years now, and I have NOTHING but positive praises for him and his team! They always returned my calls, worked tirelessly to make sure my case was always prioritized, and were always so pleasant to work with. I am so thankful for Joey and Sarah. I HIGHLY recommend this firm!

- Brittany P.

I am so grateful for attorney Joey Fuson and his fabulous paralegal Sarah Hastings. Joey Fuson is a professional well polished attorney that is exceptional in the art of law. His win-win positive attitude produced an outcome I could never have imagined for my son. When he tells you he's going to make something happen, you can have the confidence that he will follow through to the end. If you ever find yourself in need of an attorney I recommend Joey Fuson. A professional with a heart of gold.

- Rhonda G.

Joey and Sarah were a pleasure to work with. I was coming from out of town to resolve my case and they were aware of that so they made every accommodation possible. In the end, after stressing for months over my situation, they got me the best outcome I could've hoped for. I would 100% recommend them to anyone who finds themselves in an unfortunate predicament such as myself. 5 stars!

Joey Fuson knows the law, how to fight and successfully defend criminal charges and, when necessary, negotiate for the best possible outcome. Like most good attorneys, he is busy but gets results. Joey and his paralegal, Sarah, were great to work with. Joey came highly recommended as The Guy to Call for Tennessee criminal defense... and did not disappoint.

Was facing four charges and attorney Fuson was able to get three of the four dismissed and only probation for the one charge I did get.

March 28, 2022

This was my first experience hiring an attorney and it went as well as I could have imagined. After speaking with a few attorneys I found online I just wasn't feeling confident in what I was doing. Finally I got around to speaking with Joey Fuson and I immediately felt his passion. I felt like he was ready to go to battle for me and it wasn't for show either. He is very professional, knowledgeable, and gives it to you straight. I knew exactly what to expect and felt confident in what I was doing. Non the less my case was dismissed! 10 out of 10 I would recommend Freeman and Fuson!

- Brad K.

March 25, 2022

Joe was very personable and compassionate to my situation. I never felt judged. He came recommended from a friend and they were right that he is a "Johnny Cochran". The rest of his staff stayed in contact regularly and were very helpful and always made time for me when I needed it. I had great results and at a reasonable rate, I would have paid more for what I got. The plan is to never be in a situation like this again, but I know where to go now if anyone else needs representation.

- Garrett Griffey

February 28, 2022

I loved working with Sarah and Joey. They are very kind people who made sure I understood every step of the process. They treated me with kindness continuously and I would definitely use them again!

Superheroes! Joey Fuson and Mark Freeman helped our son navigate a very scary Zero Tolerance Offense with the Williamson County School Board and a petition with the WC juvenile court. From the very first call to their offices, we knew we had found the right team to represent our son. They immediately understood our unique situation (legal hemp possession charged as a marijuana offense) and gave us excellent guidance from day one. Joey's unrivaled expertise with the current and constantly changing TN cannabis law and Mark's grace and eloquence handling our school board appeal resulted in the best outcome we could have hoped for. The entire office demonstrated kindness and professionalism which was reflected in their good relationships with the court and opposing counsel. Not only did they provide excellent representation for our son, but they were also able to inform and educate the school board and even the court about the nuances of hemp and marijuana law. They truly changed the course of our son's future.

Helped my husband adopted our son from his biological father. Marissa Knight was so understanding about our situation. She made sure we were well cared for and handled a delicate situation BEAUTIFULLY. My family has never been so at peace and our son has THRIVED ever since!

Mr. Fuson was very informative, understanding & emphatic pertaining to my case. Always punctual and straight to the point, displaying professionalism through every step of court proceedings and beyond. My case was dismissed January 26, 2022. Thanks Mr. Fusion & the entire staff. I would recommend all of my family and friends to Freeman & fusion.

I hope you never need an attorney but, if you do, then I hope you are smart enough to hire Joey. He truly does care about his clients and goes above and beyond during what can be a stressful time for all. We had a multi-county case that could have been tricky, but Joey was so knowledgeable about the court systems in each TN county that he was able to get the best possible outcome. He makes it seem effortless and that is what you want when you are in a bad situation. His whole team (especially Sarah) is the best at what they do, and I am forever grateful to have had them in our corner!
