Great experience
I first called Fridman Law Firm PLLC because I needed help establishing my LLC, creating legal documents for my software like a privacy policy/terms, and general advice. I picked this firm over the other firms in the area because this company was professional, gave me a accurate estimate up front, had good reviews online, and experience working with software firms. The best part of working with Fridman Law Firm PLLC was the high quality work and attention to detail. The outcome after all of the work put in by the firm has been great. My LLC has been created and I have newly created legal docs like my terms and conditions. It has allowed me to bring my app to market with peace of mind.

DVM, Founder of Jope
I retained Fridman Law Firm PLLC because I am starting my company and needed legal advice on just about everything. I decided Fridman Law Firm PLLC was the right firm for me because the reviews of other clients were outstanding, and all were unanimously raving about their services. My favorite thing about working with Fridman Law Firm PLLC was they had a rapid turnover time. Also, they were very empathetic, cared about our business, and understood our needs. Finally, they went above and beyond for us. As a result, I am confident I will build a very successful business and continue working closely with them. I know I will turn to them regarding all the legal advice I will be seeking in the future. So I have the peace of mind knowing my interests and my company are in good hands.

Less stressful.

Amazing corporate law work!
The reason we retained Fridman Law Firm PLLC was that we needed all around legal support and general council for our new startup. We picked this firm over all the other firms in the area because after meeting with Neil, it was immediately clear that he and his team were extremely knowledgeable but still able to speak plainly about matters in a way that made it easy to understand and to make decisions quickly. The best part of working with Fridman Law was not having to worry about them spending time on things that were unnecessary. As a result of their hard work, our company went from 2 to 14 employees, through two successful rounds of funding. We will continue to use their firm for the long haul!

Absolutely LOVE working with Neil and his team! He is extremely thorough and helpful, and is absolutely fantastic to work with. My sister and I started our company a few years ago, and hiring a lawyer was super daunting--could not be more happy we chose Fridman Law to work with. Highly recommend these guys!

Outstanding lawyer, top notch advice & execution
We've been working with Neil concerning a number of topics and he has been flawless in his execution. What impresses me most is that our industry is very niche and very technical. So to pick up the subject matter that quickly and execute on contracts is no small task. Another thing worth noting is that his turnaround times are excellent. That really matters to a company growing as quickly as ours is. I can't speak highly enough of him.

Help with advertising contracts
It was awesome working with Neil as he created our company's first publisher and advertiser contracts. He is very knowledgeable, quick to respond, and savvy when it comes to navigating the startup ecosystem. With his work, Neil went above and beyond, even going as far as to introduce us to relevant customers. I strongly recommend Neil and look forward to working with him again in the future.

Great lawyer for our growing company
Our company is less than two years old and in that time we've had a lot of trouble finding a good lawyer. Most times they don't answer questions, are opaque in their processes, and/or make us feel like we're not worth their time. That changed when we first hired Neil. We've used Neil to help us craft an employee stock option pool, administer advisory shares, and to craft the contract for our first hire. He will be the only lawyer we use going forward. Neil works really quickly and most importantly for us he is always happy to answer any questions that we have. Our company means everything to us and Neil understands and appreciates that. I cannot recommend Neil more highly!

Fantastic Lawyer
Wow, Neil is fantastic! Since working with Neil he has helped my videogame startup with everything from our corporate formation to state registration to even equipping my team with contracts for working with freelancers, advisors and more so we can move quickly and conduct business safely. He even participants in company events and always has valuable advice. He has done an AMAZING job guiding us through fundraising and ensuring we complied with all of the required legal needs, you will be hard pressed to find a lawyer that works harder (or later, or on weekends) more than Mr. Neil Fridman! If you are a startup or in need of a good corporate attorney, Neil is absolutely a great choice. Highly recommended!!
