Civil rights Attorney | Jun 06
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I worked with David for several years on a major constitutional case that went to the FIrst Circuit. We won every step of the way with him in the lead, because he is smart, a great writer, and a terrific advocate all around. Anyone with a civil rights or constitutional claim would be in good hands with him and the Law Offices of Howard Friedman."
