Amazing Attorney
Pete is an amazing attorney who helps clients understand the legal system and the value of their case. Mr. Friedman continually addressed my concerns, and fought for me all the way through trial. During the trial, he ensured the facts came to light! Thank you Pete for all you have done! I would highly recommend Pete to anyone who faces legal battles with employers.

Exceptional and Professional
Pete Friedmann helped me with an unjust severance I received from my company when my position was eliminated. Pete was diligent in representing me from start to finish. His communication, research, thoroughness, and persistence went above and beyond my expectations. He was able to negotiate a very fair agreement for me in a very timely manner. He followed up with me after the case was settled and made sure I was satisfied with everything. Most importantly, Pete was very caring through this process during these unsettling times. I highly recommend Pete Friedmann and The Friedmann Firm for their exceptional and professional services.

Age Discrimination Suit
I had the extreme pleasure of hiring and working with Pete Friedmann in regards to an unlawful termination suit I was directly involved in. The Friedmann group eagerly took my case when other firms waffled as they felt it was not a "slam dunk". After several weeks of careful consultation and a thorough review of all the facts, Pete appraised me of our strategy and kept me fully abreast throughout the entire negotiation process. My personal thoughts and opinion weighed heavily in the direction I wanted this to go and in the end, our efforts were rewarded with a settlement I was extremely pleased with. They handled everything and I was never even required to attend anything formal or otherwise. I would highly recommend The Friedmann Firm for any potential suit involving areas of employment and labor.

Very responsive! Highly recommend him and his firm for any employment situation. Great representation! Thanks so much.

WRONGFUL TERMINATION SUIT
From start to finish, my expectations were met or exceeded by Rachel and Pete at the Friedmann Firm. They made sure I was well informed throughout the course of the process, before and during the trial. Reflecting back, from time to time, it seemed to be an uphill battle that was never going to end or quit pulling on my thoughts, heart, and my family. On top of that, I had to regroup and start with a new company(same area of business and services). I was wrongfully terminated. The Friedmann Firm was my backbone at my lowest time. After all this, we went head-to-head with a large company at trial. The Friedmann Firm put all the facts together, timelines and uncovered every corner of the case, leaving no stone unturned. Pete was able to pin-point everything to the jury, without a doubt. Finally the truth was revealed, and it was so refreshing to hear, see and feel the jury return a verdict in our favor. To me, the Friedmann Firm is a total package of professionalism with compassion for others, and a work ethic that is second to none. I just wanted to say thank you, RPL
