Best Employment Law Attorney
Although Andrew Friedman primarily represents plaintiffs in employment law matters, he has provided employment law advice to my company since I founded it in 2001. Mr. Friedman is obviously extremely experienced, very thoughtful, intelligent and he really cares about his clients. He treats me with the utmost care and attention making himself available at night and on weekends when I have had urgent matters to discuss. Mr. Friedman always makes sure to inform me about the pros & cons of various scenarios. I find him to be incredibly ethical and trustworthy. Whether a plaintiff or a potential defendant, I use Mr. Andrew H. Friedman.
