I started my case against my employer with Ms. Friedman and she assured me repeatedly that it was worthwhile and that we would have good results. However, I would have to send her detailed and frequent e-mails to get her to move on the case. After several months, and tens of thousands of dollars later, we were not very far into my case, and not even before a judge!!! After it became apparent that I could not afford more than the $60,000 I already gave her to move forward, she dumped me as a client. I was on my own to find another lawyer to sort out the mess. For a few thousand more, another lawyer was able to get me out of the case for 2/3rds the fees that I paid Friedman and her cohorts at Tully Rinkey, and I have a net loss of $25,000. Had Ms. Friedman been up front with me that my case was not very strong, I would not have proceeded and I would be FAR better off.
I was very pleased with Joanna Friedman as my legal representative. She was knowledgeable, honest, and straight forward in all aspects of my case. I was confident that any issues brought to her attention would be addressed and resolved quickly. She was respectful and mindful of my personal life and well being throughout a very stressful period as well. I would highly recommend her for any future clients that desire a representative who is about handling business in an agressive, but utmost professional manner.
