Why is My Will Lawyer on PBS Television?

Local Trust, Estate and Will Lawyer David M. Frees III recently appeared on the PBS interview program – Spotlight. As many of Frees’ business and estate planning clients already know, in addition to being a respected Pennsylvania attorney practicing in the areas of trusts, estates, and wills, David Frees is also know outside of the practice of law as an expert in the field of family and inter-generational communications skills.

His recent interview included discussions and techniques from two of his books, The Language of Parenting: Building Great Family Relationships at All Ages and his essay on business communications skills – The Language of Abundance in Elite Books’ Einsteins Business. The techniques and strategies reviewed in these interviews included discussions of both family and business communications secrets.

Frees was quoted as saying: “Those two skills are not as different as they might at first appear. There really is quite an overlap between my practice of law and my study, speaking, and writing on the topics of business and family communications skills.”

Frees added “Most of my clients really value the knowledge and experience that I bring to the estate planning process. I know how families communicate and I can bring this knowledge to their wills and trusts and attempt to avoid disputes.”

Because many of Frees’ clients are also business and family business owners, his knowledge of marketing, business, and family communications skills are also valuable to his clients.

“Quite a few of my clients have worked with me to grow and to pass on their businesses. Many families and business people just work with me to develop their estate plans and estate planning documents, but many others also value my business and marketing background and my skills as a business problem solver.” “I am always happy when I can help clients in multiple ways to not only pass on their businesses but to help them to solve lifetime problems.”

In fact, Frees’ firm, Unruh, Turner, Burke and Frees and David now represent the second and even the third generation of some families and some family businesses.

“That is really quite a nice compliment.” According to Frees, “When more than one generation of a family or family business continues to use our firm, we feel that we have done a good job for them. But, we are always looking for ways to further enhance our value to the client.”
