Former client
Holly was an excellent attorney and very professional from the moment I spoke to her on the phone. She is very detail oriented and truly cared about my situation. I was beyond satisfied and have recommended her to several close friends who are also happy with her work.

Highly Recommend
I highly recommend Ms. Biederman. She is professional and incredibly responsive. She is clearly an expert in family law and was empathetic every step of the way treating me with such care and kindness recognizing my situation was emotional and personal but also knowing when to provide balanced legal advice with setting realistic expectations. She was proactive and I was always fully informed. She was both a partner and advisor and I would not have had the successful outcome I did without her representation.

Professional and Efficient
Holly helped me with a family law matter/property division case. Holly handled my case with outstanding professionalism and in an expedited way, taking into consideration my situation. I highly recommend Holly continuously.

Excellant and Trustworthy!
Ms. Friedman handled my divorce several years ago and she was wonderful! She is considerate of what you are going through but also helps keep you from making mistakes you will regret later. She is very detailed and did not forget a thing. I would recommend her to anyone with family issues. She made my ex-spouses attorney look like he had just graduated from law school!

Made a tough situation easier
Ms Friedman was sensitive to the emotional nature of our case, while remaining professional and supportive. She did not allow things to get nasty and allowed us to move forward in a way that was best for our family.

Tough lawyer, good listener
Holly listened to my concerns about my children and my business and guided me through my case with those concerns in mind. The judge greeted her by name when we came into the courtroom and listened when she spoke. She was tough and respectful and anticipated problems. I would recommend her to anyone with complex problems to solve.

Divorce with emergency custody concerns
Holly guided me through a highly stressful divorce when I became aware that my children were not in a safe situation with my former spouse. Holly expertly set in motion the processes that would eventually set lasting protective structures in place. Her knowledge of the judges, the court, the legal process, and the various possibilities and likely outcomes helped me manage my both my fear but also the relationship with my ex that had become highly fraught. She provided solid advice that we followed to an outcome I could be pleased with, not only in our court appearances but also through the mediation process. I could not imagine a better guide and legal representative, and I would not repeat that experience with anyone else.

Not the Best
I hired Holly. She was not the best for custody battles. I had CPS reports and abuse reports/strong evidence. With all the evidence provided to this lawyer, I am disappointed with the end results.

Expensive
I hired Holly and although there was evidence of abuse and adultery Holly failed to gain custody over my children. The kids and I became homeless I had to sell my house so I could pay Holly her fees.
