I hired Josh to help negotiate a post-employment/severance agreement with a former employer. He made sure to explain all of my options and helped set reasonable expectations. Despite the other party being difficult to work with, Josh was always cool, calm, and collected. When the other party made unfavorable demands, Josh thought creatively and found compromises that worked for me. I am 100% satisfied with my experience, and I have already referred friends to him.

I hired Attorney Friedman to help with pregnancy discrimination at work. I had a complicated, high risk pregnancy and my boss tried to force me on medical leave so she wouldn't have to remember when I had medical appointments. My boss demanded I disappear for causing such an inconvenience. I was very angry and disappointed but felt relief after consulting with Attorney Friedman. He was able to work with my employer so that I received a settlement for the discrimination I experienced. I am so grateful for his help and am now able to focus on the joy of my new baby instead of the idiot boss I worked for.

Josh advised me that my situation was worth pursuing but did not over-promise results. He presented my facts to the company and followed up in a way which elicited a favorable response. Josh is a great listener and very professional with everyone he engages on both sides. I strongly recommend you contact Josh if you have a labor related issue. Josh will let you know if it has merit and is worth pursuing... likely toward a favorable outcome.

I was referred to Josh Friedman by a colleague, so he could assist me with an issue I was having with a former employer. I hired Josh to handle a contract dispute over a severance agreement and share repurchase that was not being honored. Unlike other lawyers I've worked with, Josh took all the time needed to fully discuss and understand the issue, reviewed all the documents in short order, and put together a strategy that led to the desired outcome. I couldn't be more pleased with the service I received throughout the entire process. I was so pleased, I've already recommended him to multiple other colleagues and associates that are facing similar issues.

I wouldn't select an attorney simply because of online reviews, but Josh's positive online reviews got him into my short list. I spoke to several attorneys as I was looking for legal help, and Josh was concise, clear, and logical, as opposed to some of the others who spoke at length to say something that could have been said in one sentence. My wife and I contacted two of Josh's reference by phone, and they were very positive. Josh gave me great advice in my effort to collect money owed by a former employer. He laid out the pros and cons of various courses of action, including an explanation of the costs and time involved in suing the company. He didn't push the litigation option, which would have been more profitable for him. His advice helped me decide to settle with the company. Josh made important changes to the settlement agreement. I recommend Josh for employer problems.

Josh Friedman did and excellent job of helping me out in getting a settlement from my former employer, with whom I had been an employee for 23 years. I would recommend Mr. Friedman to anyone who has a specific problem in his field of expertise.

I met with Josh once to review my case (employment termination) and thereafter worked with him over the phone and via email. He gave me a realistic understanding of what my outcome would be, validated those expectations against my own goals, and then worked with my old employer and IDES to achieve a benefit which well exceeded his fee. He was professional and well-prepared throughout, and kept me informed as the case progressed. I would not have achieved this positive outcome without his advocacy. I greatly appreciate his help and would recommend him to others who have a dispute with their employer.

This is a follow-up to my previous review. I just received the decision from Unemployment after the hearing that I WON THE CASE and will receive unemployment benefits- this is thanks to Josh Friedman's hard work to this case and his excellent representation! I am so happy that I went with him as my lawyer!

I met attorney Josh Friedman in a case about my employment termination. I was very nervous not having any experience with this situation. He was so patient with me and my broken english and took the time to listen and explain everything in detail that I needed to know. He responded to all my questions immediately. I could not have asked for someone to represent my case better than he did. He went above and beyond my expectations. I would use him again for anything. Trying to calm my anxiety down he assured me with uplifting words like “don’t be afraid” and “I am on your side” – words that meant a lot to me during this stressful time.
He was friendly with me and very patient, but with my ex-employer during the hearing he was like a shark, quick, concise, and able to dispute their lies before they could even finish their sentence. At the same time he pays attention to the details of the case presented. Although I don’t know the output of my case yet, I would definitely recommend him to everyone looking for a top lawyer. He is a 5 star!!

Josh was absolutely superb. I had an issue with an former employer (a major bank), regarding my compensation - they were making my life miserable, dragging me through low-end collections agencies and sending threatening letters, until Josh stepped in, reviewed the contract and resolved the issue within days. I also got excellent advice from him regarding how to seek further compensation for my time and emotional distress, and I would sincerely recommend him to anyone in need of legal advice. I had not dealt with attorneys much in the past, and any negative stereotypes that are usually associated with the profession, absolutely do NOT hold up with Josh.
