More of a Friend...
I hired Rachel to help me with a very personal and emotional matter. She was extremely professional, easy to contact and dedicated to my case... a real go-getter. Among all of the other attorneys I consulted with, I feel like Rachel's ability to listen was what let me to hire her and ultimately win my case.

The best!
Rachel helped me with a very difficult employment matter that I thought was nearly impossible. My case was in excellent hands with The Friedmann Firm. They fought for me aggressively. Rachel has top notch legal and negotiation skills! She went up against one of the largest employment law firms in the country and my result turned out favorable, by far exceeding my expectation. I could go on and on. I HIGHLY recommend Rachel!!!

Excellent Attorney- would hire again!
Rachel helped me through a difficult situation I had with my employer. It was very stressful for me but she always kept me informed and did her best to ease my mind. Because of Rachel, I was able to negotiate a settlement that was beneficial to me and allowed me to keep my current position.
