  • Katie Zoa Ehrmin

    I endorse this lawyer. I share an office space with Mr. Friedman and have worked with him as co-counsel on several legal matters. Not only is Josh extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of employment/labor law, but he is extremely diligent and conscientious. He fights hard for his clients, he is straightforward, and he takes the time to talk to his clients and explain a case, something you don't often find these days in attorneys. Anyone that comes to me with an employment/labor issue, I refer them to Josh Friedman as I know that they will be well represented.
