  • Joshua Erin Newstat

    I worked with Mr. Friedman on a matter that required a very high level of personal attention, legal prowess and an understanding of the local court system that I thought would be impossible to find. After interviewing a number of attorneys Mr. Friedman immediately impressed me with his strategy, demeanor, customer service and of course the ultimate outcome which was a complete case dismissal. If you have any doubts about hiring Mr. Friedman, forget about them and hire this guy because you cannot go wrong. Although I am a California attorney I refer potential Washington clients to him without hesitation knowing they will have the best representation possible.
