Louis Fristensky began his career in law after receiving his Associate’s Degree in paralegal studies in 2007. Louis went back to college in 2014 to improve his overall skill set, and earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Legal Studies. By 2016, now having spent so much of his career as a paralegal, Louis decided it was time to become an attorney and have a paralegal of his own. As such, in 2019, Louis graduated from Ave Maria School of Law in beautiful Naples, Florida.
Immediately after graduating from Ave Maria, Louis moved to Waynesville, NC and spent two years managing a small law firm in Asheville. While there, he learned about local administrative processes required to file civil lawsuits, how to answer and write interrogatories, how to get the most out of witnesses through deposition, and how to acquire experts to bolster a client’s position. During this time, Louis also assisted with Title IX student sexual harassment hearings and increased his overall knowledge in criminal and civil procedure. Leveraging this knowledge, he helped clients achieve successful negotiations with insurance companies and learned how to apply important aspects of the law in various domestic concerns – such as domestic violence protective orders, child custody matters, separation agreements, and divorce. Presently, Louis is focused on learning all there is to know about Family Law in hopes of becoming a board certified specialist.
His career highlights might be dull to those unfamiliar with the law, but Louis is especially pleased to have once remanded a case back to state court that was removed to federal court by opposing counsel. Louis has successfully argued for summary judgment, prevented default judgments from being set aside, and because of his keen research abilities, has found solutions to problems once thought unsolvable.
In his personal life, Louis enjoys walking his Whippet, Sophia, and taking her to the local dog park. Thanks to Ave Maria’s principles based approach to law, the Model Rules of Professional Conduct, and his many life experiences, Louis’s personal ethics guide him be the best attorney he can by constantly improving his overall knowledge of the law and by being of service to those in need of assistance. Louis takes being a competent lawyer and giving back to the community very seriously. Indeed, he was once a Big Brother and Freemason, and he believes that a collaborative approach to the practice of law, one that includes the client as much as possible, is the perfect way to keep the client informed and bring about success outcomes.
“When you retain a lawyer at King Law Firm, you not only get Louis, but an entire army of fine, competent, and experienced attorneys.”
