Highly recommended!
Beyond exceptional! Mr. Friedman assisted me in my first, and hopefully only, motor vehicle case. He helped make an incredibly successful case so much easier and saved me so much time and money. He was communicative, personable, respectful and caring about the entire situation. Clearly well rounded and an expert in his field, I would recommend him to anyone.

A little pricy for worth every penny.
I need Allan's help recently with a traffic matter. He was very prompt, educated me on what to do, was ALWAYS present when needed and helped drop the charges by negotiating with the prosecutor. IMHO, He is definitely a little pricy but worth it. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY. I highly recommend his services.

Great guy
From the moment I spoke with Allan he was professional , direct , and reassuring he could do his best, and work diligently to get the best outcome for my case but made no promises . I was extremely nervous and he did everything he could to ease my nerves and make me feel at ease . He ultimately got my case dismissed after a couple of court dates and explained everything in detail along the way . It was a great experience and I really appreciate his representation he’s a great person and the ultimate professional !

ABSOLUTELY EXCEPTIONAL ATTORNEY
I give Allan a 10 out of 5 - he is that good and far beyond excellent !!! Allan handled my traffic matter with the highest level of professionalism, empathy and efficiency that anyone could ever ask for. From initial consultation to final outcome, Allan listened to me and put my mind at ease. He quickly developed multiple options for me and a plan of action to follow with the best possible outcomes. The results of my case were miraculous and by far exceeded my expectations. My recommendation to anyone facing a legal issue is to contact Allan immediately and not waste time figuring out who to hire – trust me on this. This world needs more people like Allan and I’m very fortunate that he made a difference in my life which I will always remember and be grateful for – THANK YOU Allan and GOD BLESS YOU ALWAYS !!!

Criminal Defense
I was charged with Criminal Trespassing. With collecting many letter of good character, my lawyer was able to get it dismissed to an infraction and a 100$ fine.

DUI troubles
I hired Mr. Allan Friedman to be my lawyer for my case, I received a DUI that involved an accident. Mr. Friedman helped me not get any time in prison, he was kind and professional during the entire time I employed him for his services. I would highly recommend him to anyone who has any similar situations because he will do his absolute best to help out his clients.

This man literally saved my life!
I had a criminal mischief and domestic charge along with a protective order put on me. Atty Friedman successfully got me into the required needed to have these charges dropped. Then came the felony protective order violation...Long story short I walked out of court today with all my charges nolled. Atty Friedman was professional, reachable (even on Christmas Eve), determined and open minded with my case. I can't thank him enough and would highly recommend him for any legal trouble you get yourself into. Thank you Atty. Friedman! I owe you one!

SUPER ATTORNEY, Professional, Ethical, and Professional
Prior to hiring Attorney Allan Friedman I was working with another Attorney who was not, whatsoever, well versed in any criminal proceedings even though he claimed and boasted that he was. When I found Attorney Friedman he spoke to me on the phone for numerous hours and ASSURED ME that everything was going to be okay. Somewhat skeptical I decided to do some background information on his credentials and it turns our that Attorney Friedman is one of the BEST ATTORNEYS in Connecticut. He is Well Versed in various types of Criminal and Civil Cases and was able to get my case DISMISSED!!!! I was able to sleep at night knowing I had him on my side. My Wife, Mother, Father, and Brothers CANNOT emphasize and thank him enough for the OUTSTANDING work that he did for me. He made my Felony charges evaporate and was able to show me that there are people out there who are willing to fight in the interest of justice. Additionally it must be noted that his representation and numerous mentions in mass media is due to his Excellent and RELENTLESS work ethic in making sure that his clients get the results they need. THANK YOU ALLAN!!!!!!!!!

Expert DUI Lawyer
Allan was proactive in my case which was a very serious DUI case as a result of an accident and gave me the best possible outcome. I googled dui lawyers in Fairfield county and interviewed 4 of them on the phone. I was very impressed with Allan after our initial conversation and also used his website to educate myself regarding this process. He has a lot of useful law articles on this subject and they were very helpful to understand how he develops his approach. He’s very honest and upfront about possible outcomes and knows the laws and local courts. Highly recommended.

Pharma Rep-Moving Violation
From the minute I contacted attorney Friedman, I felt comfortable that he was the right lawyer to handle my case. He was very knowledgeable regarding traffic violations. He never made any promises, but instead told me what he felt he could do for me and what the potential outcomes might be (with the best case scenario being a dismissal). Since driving is required for my job, this situation was crucial and could have affected my employment. Atty Friedman was able to get my charges dismissed. He did a great job and I would highly recommend him!

An Advocate in Your Corner
I hired Allan to help me with a very sensitive case. Allan was very understanding yet enthusiastic about making sure things were resolved in my favor. Not having any experience with the legal system myself, Allan went above and beyond to ensure that this was my first and last experience with the legal system, while ensuring this wouldn't stick with me forever.
