I was going through a really tough time in my life. I was putting myself through college and dealing with divorce at the same time. I knew I needed a lawyer on my side, but didn’t really think I would ever be able to afford it. A friend gave me Tina’s number and I called to set up an appointment. I left her office feeling confident that I was in good hands with her. Through the years, whenever an issue has come up, she has been there for me, even if it’s just to answer a few legal questions. Her name is always the first to come to mind whenever someone asks me about a “good lawyer".

I had always thought situations like bankruptcy were experienced by others and not me. Then reality hit home when I filed for bankruptcy seeing no other options! From our first meeting, Tina showed her knowledge and experience, most especially an empathetic and caring attitude. The process took several weeks to complete, but I was fully confident that selecting Tina to assist me was the right decision. She always was available (phone or email) to give a prompt response to my questions. I am glad she was there when I needed her the most! I wholeheartedly would recommend using her services.

This woman is the most kind-hearted woman I’ve ever met. She’s the best, most honest attorney I’ve ever in my life worked with. I would recommend this woman for anyone. Hell, I’d give my kidney to her. She’s passionate and understanding and down to the point. Like I said, I’d recommend her for anyone. Also, I would like to thank this woman for doing my [bankruptcy] case: Tina, you truly made my life more comfortable. Thanks again!

I am writing on behalf of Atty. Tina Fryling, an excellent lawyer with exceptional interpersonal skills. As the former director of the Erie County Adult Probation/Parole Department and Warden of the Erie County Prison, I have worked with countless attorneys. Many of them are outstanding trial lawyers, many of them interact well with all types of people, but few have both of these attributes. Tina does. She is approachable, explains complicated legal matters in an understandable fashion, and at all times makes one feel that you are her primary concern. It is for these reasons, and others that time will not permit, that I recommend Atty. Tina Fryling for any legal concern.

I lost my job and had to declare bankruptcy. I first went to [another] lawyer who advertises and when I had my first appointment with that attorney, it was in a very small office, devoid of any sense that it was an attorney’s office. I was ushered into a small room containing a bare desk and two chairs. The attorney arrived and skimmed over my paperwork. The attorney said that I had a good case and told me what the fee would be. I had questions, but the attorney seemed to be in a hurry and didn’t really answer my questions. I left not feeling good about the attorney. I looked for another attorney and came across Attorney Fryling’s website. I called her and set up an initial appointment. When I arrived, I was greeting by Christine and she took my paperwork. I was then escorted to Attorney Fryling’s office. She greeted me and looked over my paperwork. I had provided her with a budget and she said that I had a good case. I asked a number of questions and she listened to my concerns. She answered every concern that I had. Her fees were over $500 less than the previous attorney, which – with bankruptcy – was a huge relief. She has kept me informed at every step of the way and, because of her experience with bankruptcy trustees, she knew exactly how to prepare my paperwork. I have complete confidence in her abilities and expect a good outcome of my case.

When they coined the phrase, ‘If I didn’t have bad luck, I would not have any luck at all,” they were describing my perils with the legal system.


There are many times in our lives that we wish that we could have done things differently; however, we cannot sit here and ‘armchair quarterback’ our mistakes. I, for one, have made more than my fair share of mistakes for which I must take full responsibility. I just wish that I had met Tina before I hired an attorney whom I conveniently worked next door to.


The circumstances that usually lead you to having to retain legal representation are not “good.” However intimidating, scary, and uncertain going through the court system can be, it can be much easier with good people on your side. Tina cares and listens. She is not like others that assume they are the ‘all mighty’ and act so condescending.


While I was paying the price for my ‘white-collar’ actions, things began to storm in my personal life, similar to a typical Erie Lake Effect snow storm…and then some. If I had only met Tina two years prior, my life’s history would be re-written, I am sure.


I have referred many friends to Tina, and will continue to do so. One time, I referred a friend to Tina, and the matter exploded to involve myself. Tina could not represent me as it would have been a conflict of interest. At that point, Tina went out and sought counsel for me. The matter ended well.


Whether the results of your matter are favorable or not, Tina sticks with you, and at least attempts to comfort you and justify the matter, with sense.


Tina is honest. If your matter is not a matter she feels comfortable with, she will find you counsel that specializes in that matter.


Tina is professional, kind, and very respectful. She takes time to thoroughly explain the judicial system and leaves nothing to speculation. If this is your first time needing an attorney, she is perfect. I never felt misled. She is patient and quick to respond to your needs. I trust Tina with any legal matter. Actually, to expand upon that thought, I’d trust Tina with any matter, legal or not.

I have my BA and Masters in Criminal Justice. When I attended school at Gannon University, Tina helped me tremendously. I needed an attorney for a custody matter in Erie, PA and I needed a good attorney. I called Tina Fryling, and I let her know everything that was going on in my life at that time. I didn’t have much money. Tina said she would accept my case and I could set up a payment plan with her. That was the first time an attorney didn’t look at her watch, making me feel like I was on a time limit. Now, I tell all my clients who need an attorney about Tina and how she wants to help people to her fullest ability. Tina is one of the best and most ambitious attorneys that I know. She is very driven and will fight for you with all she’s got. I consider Tina to be a very good friend and attorney and I will always be grateful for how much she helped me in my life.

When I was faced with the stressful situation of divorcing my husband, I turned to Tina Fryling to represent me. Although we had very little to divide, and no children, my ex-husband was being rather vindictive about signing the divorce papers. Tina was compassionate, supportive, and understanding throughout the process, while also completing the process with the utmost professionalism and expertise. She was able to secure my ex’s signature on the papers, allowing me to complete the divorce and move on to rebuild my life. Tina approaches family law with an excellent understanding of the legal system paired with compassion and a drive to find the most equitable outcome possible for the individuals involved. She is not a cut-throat lawyer, out for the last penny she can get, which is ultimately a good thing for her clients and for her practice. I would recommend Tina to anyone who needs a family law or bankruptcy attorney.
