Exceptional lawyer
Just mentioning his name to your opponents strikes fear in them. I called him about a contract dispute, he sent a letter of demand and it was resolved in less than 24 hours.

He help me to understand and fear my concern about ..
Mr. Fridman help me to understand the letters sent to me from a legal firm regarding matters that are weren't appropriately addressed. I also learned from him what the process was done and what I was going to experience was not the legal procedure. He put me at ease and advised me where to go according to the brackets of my household income. I can be assured he is the right professional to call to clarify what and who can do what while collecting a debt. Thank you very much! Muchas Gracias!

A Go-to lawyer!
Our family has worked with Allan on several occasions since 2005. His service is always exceptional and prices are reasonable! Allan spends as much time with us as we need, explaining all details and steps; giving practical advice that sometimes goes beyond his responsibilities. It's a pleasure to communicate with Allan and we'll definitely continue working with him in the future!

Chapter 7 client.
I came to Oleg Allan Fridman during a difficult time in my life when I needed to declare bankruptcy. He was very respectful and everything was explained to me very clearly and he took the time to answer all my questions. Working with Mr. Fridman brought great relief for my difficult and stressful situation. Everything went smoothly and he was very professional, organized and meticulous. Always responded to my calls and concerns immediately and kept me updated on what was going on. Furthermore the fees are reasonable and clearly explained. If you need help with bankruptcy litigation, don’t even bother to find somebody better than Oleg Allan Fridman. He is extremely honest, trustworthy and knowledgeable. Through my contact with Mr. Fridman, I have found that he is genuinely interested in assisting me and is committed to providing me with the best possible service available. I am very satisfied with his work and highly recommend him!

When it comes to financial cases, we only trust Allan.
Allan is always on top of his game. He knows what he is doing and does it very well. Any financial purchases/ cases- we turn to him. Allan has never let us down. He has gotten my parents out of an impossible case that no other attorney could do. I have been recommending him to all my friends and will continue to do so, because he is simply the best!

Filed a BK for our business
Allans firm was hired to file a bk for our company. He had a long, tough battle against the creditors that did not want me to file. He was able to fight against the unions, and government agencies who was in cahoot together. Allan, and his team fought hard over a year trying to get our case final, and he did! Thanks to Allan, i am now a new company who is working with out the pressure from the creditors. Thanks to him i can now move forward and work on growing my business!! Thanks Allan, and his team for everything!!!
