    Having worked with Ryan Friedman, I can say that he is a tough, aggressive attorney that is willing to put in the extra hours and miles for his clients.

    I endorse Ryan P. Friedman as an extremely competent criminal defence attorney who works successfully to obtain the best outcomes possible for his clients. He has successfully received numerous acquittals or dismissals of cases for his criminal clients. He also has a good working relationship with the District Attorney Offices such that he can effectively obtain plea agreements which are good outcomes for his clients considering the circumstances of the charges and facts. He works around the clock for his clients. He is extremely thorough in his representation of his clients. I would readily refer anyone to him for criminal defence representation.
