Brilliant Man
Ken Friedman and Terry Venneberg successfully represented me in a sexual harassment case against a major corporation. They were both outstanding, compassionate and professional. Ken is remarkably intelligent, quick witted, has excellent humor and thinks creatively. I highly recommend this attorney as he is a genuinely decent human while still being an aggressive advocate for his clients.

Client Review
Ken represented in a wrongfully prosecuted misdemeanor case and i could not have had a better lawyer. He worked diligently, conscientiously and successfully in getting my case dismissed. He also was kind and thoughtful and eased my worries better than any social worker. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants excellent legal work.

Highest Recommendation
Ken and Terry Venneberg went up against one of the most formidable Corporations in the world, Morgan Stanley. No other attorney firms had the "guts" to take them on. It was a good case, but "the good 'ol boys" were not going to budge no matter how much it cost them. Ken and Terry stuck it out, kept me informed, were honest and very knowledgeable. We agreed upon a settlement one week before the trial began because Morgan Stanley, in all their arrogance, forgot to get a nondisclosure and that was what I really wanted. To be able to shout it from the "rooftops". I thank Ken and Terry from the bottom of my heart, Deborah J. Dodson

Excellent Personal Injury / Insurance Lawyer
Mr. Friedman represented me in making a difficult disability insurance claim. He was top notch at every stage of representation and helped me to negotiate a favorable settlement that was beyond my expectations. I would highly recommend him to anyone with a personal injury or insurance related claim.
