Attorney Lowell Friedman is the 1st lawyer who I've ever dealt with who under promised & over delivered regarding his legal capabilities which resulted in a favorable outcome to my legal situation.
Lowell's legal capabilities are wide-ranging, his knowledge of the legal system is extensive and his work ethic is beyond reproach. In my case Lowell was given a legal assignment with very little upside potential and managed to obtain the most beneficial of outcomes for myself.
Based upon the positive legal outcome that Lowell was able to obtain regarding my legal predicament I would highly recommend him to be hired for your legal needs.

I hired Lowell Friedman for two family court issues and paid him the non-refundable retainer he asked for. We consulted several times regarding both issues. He handled the first part of my case then abruptly told me I didn't have a strong case for the second issue. He refused to refund the other half of my retainer and stopped returning correspondence.
Be aware his office does not send invoices. I had to request an invoice countless times to get an accounting of my retainer balance.

Back in January, I reached out to Lowell Friedman's offices and I would have to say it was one of the best decisions I had ever made. I had gotten myself into some pretty serious trouble (DUI) and also picked up a few other charges with the City of Royal Oak and I was so nervous and worried about what was going to happen. But when I had my first consulting session with Lowell, he was able to really make me feel relaxed and assure me that there was a remedy.
From the front desk staff, legal assistants and even the associates, everyone was very friendly, compassionate and professional. Lowell, James, Rene and Olga went above and beyond making sure all the information was communicated to me promptly about my court date and making sure I understood everything that was happening every step of the way. Lowell's Offices also had reasonable rates and were even able to put me on a payment plan.
I would highly recommend Lowell and his team to anyone who may be in a tough situation and may need legal assistance.

When facing a Criminal Sexual Conduct with a previous drug charge on my record, Lowell and his team made sure I knew exactly what was happening throughout the process. After winning the pre-trail the prosecutors requested to move forward with a new charge of Assault and battery which the judged confirmed the prosecutors request. A couple court dates later, Lowell was able to reduce charges to disorderly conduct which equaled minimal fines, no probation and no jail time. I couldn't have expected a better outcome.
I would recommend Friedman Law Firm for any legal matters you may be facing.

I've heard so many horror stories about divorce that I was very hesitant to start the process. At the consultation, he took time to go over my case and answer any and all questions I had. I felt so at ease! During the whole process Mr Friedman and his staff were there for me emotionally too. Olga was so fantastic and always checked in to make sure I was doing ok and make sure I had no concerns. I highly recommend Mr Friedman and his team.

Lowell did an outstanding job as my Lawyer. I made a poor choice and was guilty of a misdemeanor of public intoxication. I got black out drunk and tried walking home. I fell and knocked myself up and woke up in the hospital. With this being said I had an excellent track record with no prior incidents of any kind. I am an engineer and had been out of college 2 years. Lowell was able to get this dropped to a double Civil Infraction which is just a fine without any further consequences. This was a great life lesson for me and I was really grateful to Mr. Friedman. I highly recommend him not only for his service but he also was very fair in his pricing. For the cost and his help there is not a better lawyer in Royal Oak.

Lowell was able to negotiate my 2-point no-insurance/tailgating ticket to a 0-point ticket and a $305 fine despite that the ticket indicated "no deal" meaning no plea bargain. I was pulled over on my motorcycle after a police officer pulled out 50 yards in front of me, drove up to 45mph (the speed limit), threw on his brakes, then proceeded to pull me over for tail-gating and not having proof of insurance. Being laughably provocative and demanding that I keep my high-theft-rate bike in a nearby ally overnight, I was unable to even speak that leaving minimal distance between me and him was safest given it was night time and few car drivers are actively paying attention for motorcycles, let alone able to see motorcycles as well as cars at night. Contrary to the officer's tone that I was a hot dog rider, I was wearing a bright yellow high visibility jacket, and a $200+ silver (not black) snell-rated helmet. It was obvious to me that he did not get me for speeding, so decided to find a sure reason to pull me over.
While he said he had over 15 years experience, he was unaware that in Michigan, a motorcycle is not a motor vehicle. He also spoke to at least two separate police officers in-person, as I witnessed three separate police vehicles pull up to his car in a time-span of 15 minutes (two of the vehicles were markedly different).
Because in michigan a motorcycle is not a motor vehicle, a michigan cyclist does NOT need no-fault insurance, as motorcycles are not part of the no fault program. However, you MUST have liability insurance, which I did not. Always be sure to have basic insurance if you must, as the rates are cheap ($15-$35/mo typical base rate) - certainly cheaper than a $305 ticket and $350 attorney fee.

Lowell Friedman was referred to me, by another lawyer, to represent my 17 year old son who was charged with retail fraud (shoplifting). His calm professional demeanor was very helpful during negotiations with the prosecutor. He is a kind honest person who, unlike many other lawyers, will actually listen to you and the details of your situation. It was practically the most stressful period of my life but he and his staff were always very polite and responsive during the many twists and turns of the case. In the end the charge was dropped with provisions that were very fair and greatly appreciated.
Thank you Lowell!

I came to Lowell's firm on a referral from a friend. My divorce was a nightmare, and my lawyer was only concerned about how much he would make. I was so frustrated with my divorce orders that I needed to have some type of relief. I called Lowell and he brought me into his office to listen to my case. Lowell has got to be one of the most "down to earth" people I've ever met. I immediately felt comfortable with his firm representing me. The communication throughtout was excellent, and when Lowell felt it necessary, he contacted me personally, whenever he could fit the time in with his schedule.
We recently returned to court, and were able to get a resolution that I felt comfortable with.
I'm very pleased with the results and would most certainly call on Lowell for his services again.
