- "Lenny - thank you for getting back to me and my apologies for my tardiness in reciprocating - jury trial yesterday (aggressive animal charge) about which you brilliantly advised me on how to approach neutralizing the “Satan-the-pit-bull” prejudice we’d invariably be shackled w/ by analogizing such prejudice to that of minorities as defendant - NFG - which I owe to you - your generosity & your nothing short of brilliant idea of overcoming what I never would’ve thought of - really, my gratitude to you is beyond words (notwithstanding, my excess of them)!

- “Lenny, can i repost this on my web site giving you full credit?”
- “great job Lenny.”
- “You have been a great spokesman for LEAP, and especially during the CO proposition!”
- “Our own superstar lawyer is apparently a fine photographer also with his Red-Shafted Flicker (it’s a bird) making the cover of this month’s Colorado Lawyer. Nicely done.”
- “Just saw the physical copy of the magazine. That thing is National Geographic great.”
- “Lenny’s photo of a Red-Shafted Flicker graces the September cover of The Colorado Lawyer. It is just stunning. Although he characterizes it as a “lazy man’s photo,” it is so well defined and evocative that I see nothing lazy about it. Well done, Lenny—this is such a good example of life outside the courtroom!”
- “So far, the verdict is unanimous about the September cover photo -- it’s terrific! We’re thrilled to have been able to publish it.
I’m copying the crack photographer in this reply. His “lazy man” description actually says more than you might think: he’s an expert and can take a good photo from any position or angle.”
- “Congrats Lenny! This is indeed a milestone, and one to mark. Also, pat yourself on the back my friend. Sometimes, we need to feel these successes so that we know we're being effective.”
- “This is such great news! I look forward to working with Xxxxx when he gets back. Your support of him has been phenomenal, Xxxxx has an excellent team in his corner.”
- “Leonard Frieling, one of the best criminal defense lawyers in Colorado, and any state within a couple thousand miles of Colorado,
told some of his colleagues today a war story of “the good old days” when a cop understood that the people he swore to protect
and serve might sometimes include the person he arrested for a minor offense.
Lenny felt the appropriate result for a client accused of speeding would be a deferred sentence, meaning if the client kept his nose clean for a few months he’d be spared a criminal record and skyrocketed car insurance. The Colorado trooper not only agreed that was fair, but also agreed to allow the client to have his chance at trial, and if found guilty still give the deferred sentence.
As I said, Lenny is a very good lawyer.
But on the witness stand, the trooper testified that the motorist blasted by the trooper’s patrol car at an incredible rate of speed.
Well, the trooper testified, I didn’t believe it myself. I mean, I really didn’t believe it. I had to lean out my own window to look at my own door to make sure I was driving a marked patrol car.
I’m pretty sure Lenny cracked a smile at that.
I’m pretty sure even his client did.
