I was referred to Mr. Friedman from another family law group in Richmond who could not take my case due to conflicts.  Apparently my ex interviewed attorneys all around town. I scheduled the appointment and was really impressed with the initial meeting. Like any good salesman he is very good at telling you what you want to hear. When I met with him he had one of his associates with him that is obviously newer, "in training" and he used the term you get 2 attorneys for the price of one. Basically it's I brought this associate just in case you don't have enough money for me and this one is less expensive and I hold her hand anyway. Yeah right. This should have been a big red flag.

Speaking of red flags, I will give you some others. His "accolades" don't go to a separate website for a reason. they are saved as images on his website. He doesn't want you going to those sites because of the real negative reviews.

Speaking of negative reviews..... When he gets one or 2 negative reviews all of a sudden the positive ones start appearing out of the blue. His co workers and friends start posting the positive reviews. Of course they are fake, they are not detailed and took someone 30 seconds to post. If someone takes time to post an in depth review, pay attention.. Most people don't want to put their personal information out there or take the time to write a review. If i can just save one person the same misery I underwent it will be worth it. I have been 8 years in and out of family court trying to get support for me and my little girls and have had a few attorneys. Even one had been disciplined by the bar and was a horrible experience but even he was no match for this doozy and Mr Friedman is my only review. He takes the cake.

So, Mr. Friedman, will pad his expenses. You will get bills and have no idea what he did or for how long. $3,000 for court prep. Interesting. What prep? $2,000 for court date. Bam your retainer is gone. POOF. A few weeks later he gets some information requests from the other attorney. Then you get the email. Put another 5,000 in or we have to withdraw. Oh really? I just gave you 5,000 and I just got a bill with 0 balance. No maam, he says that was last month. You owe us $4,986.59 for work this month. Guess what? I borrow the $5,000 and he still sends me a motion to withdraw... Really. I am a single mom of 2 beautiful little girls and he coerces me to bring the account current and drops me.

Do not use this attorney.  Apparently as soon as you start to question is ethics and where the money is going he doesnt have the answer and drops you as a client but just after he bleeds you dry. Now I have 2 little girls and a child support case that I have no more money for. Thanks Mr. Friedman you're a real winner!! The positive reviews are friends, family and coworkers. For instance, Joy Hickman one of his positive, raving client reviews on google works in his office! Interview others there are ones that actually care about the clients they serve and not about their own pockets.
