Steven E Friedman

About me

began practicing law in the state of New York in 1980, where I spent seven years serving local residents. In 1987, I moved to South Florida to assist individuals with their estate planning and probate needs. Over the course of my career, I have helped thousands of people with a wide range of legal issues involving wills, trusts and estate planning. My practice focuses first and foremost on creating simple, effective and cost efficient wealth distribution and wealth protection plans for my clients. In my three decades of years of legal practice, I have learned there is no universal plan for all people. For this reason, my goal is to never give individuals a cookie-cutter estate plan option. By working closely with my clients, I am able to understand their personal objectives, needs and resources. From there, I craft a plan around their specific lifestyle and family situation. In some cases I help clients draft a will or create a living trust. Other individuals only want to set up a powers of attorney or conservatorship. Since every financial situation is different, some clients benefit greatly from inheritance tax planning, while others don't. My goal and promise to you is always to serve you and your family first and foremost, catering to your personal needs. I have also gained vital experience as a court lawyer, fighting for my clients in front of a judge or jury when necessary. In fact, I have tried hundreds of court cases over the course of my career. My ultimate goal is to find a quick and fair resolution to your legal concerns, minimizing the amount of time you spend in court. That is why anytime I am presented with a will, trust or probate litigation matter, I focus on reaching a compromise between disputing parties. When selecting a lawyer for your estate planning or probate needs, it's important to know their credentials. It is also helpful to review previous results and past client testimonials, as this can reveal the true nature of a legal representative. I always treat my clients with compassionate legal support, working hard to meet their most pressing needs. My experience, work ethic, integrity, compassion and hands on approach to solving your legal issue distinguishes me from other lawyers. As a Pembroke Pines estate planning lawyer, I am always available to help local residents with their future legacy planning.
