    I endorse this lawyer's work. Clifford Fried is a superb lawyer engaged in the field of landlord/tenant and real estate law, and one of the first people I go to when I need help with a difficult issue. He is extremely intelligent, analytical, and creative, and has a firm grasp of the legal principles of landlord/tenant and real estate law, as well as a pragmatic approach to issue resolution. Mr. Fried is one of only a few attorneys who lead in tackling the legislative barriers frequently enacted against landlords by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, and in blazing new inroads in the often arcane, convoluted maze of San Francisco’s highly rent-controlled environment. I would enthusiastically recommend him to anyone.
