Posted by Sarah Maitland
I went through many years of an awful custody battle and many many lawyers who promised to do everything they could for me only to end up sitting in court silent while I was crucified by my ex's lawyer and then walk out of court with excuses for THEIR actions. Mr. Friedman had his hands full with my case by the time I went to him. And needed to correct all the damage from my previous so called attorney's but he never batted an eye and he followed through with everything he said he was going to do. Once we got to court he actually went toe to toe with my ex's lawyer and I was finally able to start getting results for once. I remember one night before court, I had to take him some papers and he was there with us until about 10pm in his gym clothes getting my case ready for the following day. And when I was terrified to go into the courtroom he always made me feel better and I knew I could actually trust him. I will forever be greatful.

Rick is a brilliant lawyer who is compassionate and committed to his clients. I found myself in a horrible situation due to my previous lawyers negligence. Rick took my case over and reunited me with my son. I will always be grateful.

Rick and his staff were well prepared. Rick was on time, had his questions ready to cross examine, and also had back up plans to his back up plans (which were not needed). Rick has not only won my case once, but twice. He solves all problems we come across and gives my family to ability to relax and not spend time stressing over the issues, minor or large.

Lindsay Dugan is the best attorney I had the pleasure to work with. I have be in and out of court the last 8 years dealing with custody and visitation hearings. I was served once again and my court hearing was fast approaching (after asking for a continuance appearing with no attorney). With the continuance being granted (around the Christmas/new year holiday and 2 snow storms), I was not abe to find an attorney that was able to appear with me on the date of the hearing. I was desperate and in need to find representation immediately. With only 4 days till my hearing I had met with Lindsay Dugan and Mr. Friedman. They were very understanding and empathic of my situation and need. Lindsay was available on the date of my hearing and I retained the firm to represent me. Lindsay was fabulous! She worked on my case the best she could with the limited time I presented her with. She put in 100% in preparation and 200% in court. I could have not done this without her guidance and support. If you are in need of an attorney I would recommend Lindsay and the Friedman Law firm with no doubt. Thank you Lindsay and team!

I landed at The Friedman Law Firm frustrated and stressed out. My initial consultation was supposed to be one hour but lasted over two hours with Rick Friedman and Matt Morris.... yes two lawyers ! I was only charged for one hour. They really calmed me down. Matt Morris, who has moved to government since handling my case, was a true gentleman and a experienced negotiator, very low key but effective. The opposing attorney was, what I felt, very hostile, but Matt seemed to mellow him out as negotiations progressed. During the four months of negotiations I questioned a few charges with Beth Spencer ( the financial lady ) and some charges were adjusted to my satisfaction and done in a friendly manner. Melinda is the receptionist ( and probably several other titles.... always busy ), always greeted me with a smile and a cold soda. After Matt left the firm Wyatt Taylor took over my case. Wyatt took my case at the same rate as Matt even though he is a higher paid attorney. Wyatt quickly caught up on the details of my case, at no charge, and tied up the case in a prompt, professional and cost effective manner. Danielle his assistant, though almost nine months pregnant was very nice and seemed to know her job well though I only met her once. I will not miss the stressful situation but I will miss the staff at the Friedman Law Firm. Yes, I had to pay for good representation, but that's how it is with any reputable law firm as the old saying goes " You get what you paid for". I would recommend and use this law firm again.............Mike

Although the experience I was going through was awful, I found Rick and his staff to be so kind and feel like they definitely had my best interests at heart. They seemed to have a way of making calm out of madness and had a way to relay that to me and make me feel at ease with the whole divorce process. They were knowledgeable, efficient and caring. They were also always available and responded quickly to any concern I had. I really appreciated their overall concept of doing the right thing. I feel they are the #1 law firm. I will miss them.

Rick and his firm were extremely attentive to my needs and they were extremely knowledgable. Even more importantly, we WON! I send many referrals their way because it's so important to find an attorney who actually cares!

I just read a review on this site from Bobby, who hired Mr. Friedman to handle his custody case with a difficult ex. My name is Bobby and I hired Mr. Friedman. Perhaps there are 2 clients that have the same name with similar cases at the exact same time. Mr. Friedman was terribly unprepared and did not even show up for one court date. I paid him over 30,000 dollars and lost every aspect of the custody case, and the divorce is still not settled. I have hired a new attorney and would not recommend Mr. Friedman to do anything.

Mr. Friedman helped me get divorced and did a great job with my ex who was being very difficult.

Mr. Friedman helped me out in my custody case. I have two children that were being treated bad by my ex-wife. He helped me get custody. He also got attorneys fees awarded to me.
