Nathan P. Freeburg

Mr. Nathan P. Freeburg has been litigating complex and serious cases since 2003. After graduating from The Florida State University School of Law in 2002, Mr. Freeburg moved to New York City, where he joined a thriving antitrust and commercial litigation boutique with a successful trial practice in federal court.

Mr. Freeburg then sought a new challenge and service to his country by commissioning on active duty with the U.S. Army in 2008. After deploying to Iraq, he was then picked to be a prosecutor at Fort Hood, TX, and then to be a Division Chief of Military Justice at Fort Meade, Maryland. Following, Mr. Freeburg became a defense counsel at Fort Benning, Georgia, and then was handpicked to teach Army defense lawyers worldwide for the U.S. Army Defense Counsel Assistance Program (DCAP).

During this period on active duty, Mr. Freeburg tried or consulted on some of the most well-known cases in U.S. military history and became a specialist in cross-examination of law enforcement and alleged victims. His courtroom advocacy skills were so recognized by his peers and military superiors that he was awarded two Meritorious Service Medals (MSMs) in two years for his defense advocacy.

Then, in 2017, Mr. Freeburg left active duty and began a practice of exclusively defending service members accused of serious crimes in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and Coast Guard. Mr. Freeburg has won full acquittals or dismissals on serious felony cases as different as attempted murder, rape, child sexual assault, sexual assault, the production and distribution of child pornography, fraud, aggravated assault, strangulation and many other allegations.

Many years after retiring from the USN, I suddenly found myself in a very unwelcome legal matter with the Navy. It was a total shock and I was very concerned as to the impact this would have on me and my family. Philip was so helpful, truly a calming force, and his legal help was invaluable to me, I am so thankful that I availed myself of his services! Rob

Mr. Cave saved my military retirement! His promise to me from day one was that he would fight as hard as he could he right the wring that had been done to me. And he did! I am so very thankful and grateful to him. He genuinely cared about me and made my case his priority. He used all his experience and knowledge to put forth a good defense. I am very pleased with him and will recommend him to anyone in need of an attorney. Crystal
