Comment #: NY7182
Awful, unjust, judge Fruenlich didn't even listen to me after I sworn in to tell the truth. Judge Fruenlich clearly does not care what anyone has to say, he treats everyone like another number and catergorizes extremely unfairly as well as the court appointed Attorny Susan Linder who has ruined my life by not notifying me of my court rights. I even did everything the judge ordered me to do and beyond! I'm a hospital employee of 14 years and the most caring responsible over protective school mother and my girls are 5 and 7 . Due to the courts decision without even taken my vacate into consideration also the rejection letter back was totally false and not even what happen. This is a issue I will not give up on! I'm an innocent mother and my little girls and I suffer to this day almost a year and a half later our lives have been destroyed due to the lack of neglect and carelessness on judge Fruenlich as well as court appointed Susan Linder. In my opinion as well as other innocent mothers suffer because of these two heartless so called professionals it needs to be stopped! I'm an contacting the local news as well as help me Howard! I'm in desperate need of justice to be served where it is needed!

Although he can be tough he is also extremely caring and compassionate when you are doing the right thing. This man saved my life and although at one point I hated him, looking back I needed him and thankful to have had his help!

He runs the Suffolk County Family Court as if it were his own personal kingdom. He is obnoxious to both litigants and counsel. He micro-manages the entire court's calendar, and dismisses petitions for little to no reason at all. It appears that virtually everyone in the building lives in fear of him.

I have practiced (though no longer) before this judge for over ten years. He works day and night protecting children from the disgusting crack whores and drug addicts who shake their babies half to death and break their arms and legs. He does the right thing within the law, and too bad if you don't like the outcome -- be a great lawyer or find one. Everything that he does is within the law, as he was a bureau chief for the District Attorney's office for a long time, and if you have the facts and the law on your side, you will win. He knows the law inside and out. He is the best judge on the bench in Suffolk County, if not in all of New York state!

Judge David Freundlich allowed Judge Andrew Tarantino Jr of the Islip Family Court to take a man’s child away and put the child into the man’s ex wife’s custody that is a pedophile and her Boy friend is a pedophile too! This Judge allowed this child to be abused! He should be kicked off the bench and put into Jail!
