Services for Attorneys


We offer services to other criminal defense attorneys. Please contact us if you require local counsel for a criminal matter in any state or federal court in New Jersey, or if you require assistance preparing appellate briefs.

Local Counsel - Do you have a client with a state or federal criminal case in New Jersey that you want to represent, rather than simply refer to a local firm? Are you seeking local counsel that is thoroughly familiar with the unique rules and procedures governing New Jersey criminal practice?

We are available to serve as local counsel for any criminal matter that an out-of-state attorney or law firm may have in any New Jersey state or federal court.

The referring firm acts as lead counsel throughout all phases of the criminal matter. We act purely as local counsel, and handles all administrative aspects of the case. Mr. Friedman is sensitive to the need to follow all directions of lead counsel, and continually reports back to lead counsel concerning the status of the matter.

If you have a need for local counsel in a New Jersey criminal matter, contact us today to discuss your case.

Appellate Briefs - All attorneys work under tight time constraints. As a result, we all require occasional assistance in preparing effective appellate briefs. We can help meet this need by preparing appellate briefs for attorneys representing criminal defendants on appeal.

With proven research skills, considerable drafting experience and access to extensive library resources, Mr. Friedman can draft an appellate brief for any state or federal appellate court in the United States. The referring attorney acts as lead counsel, controls all communications with the client, and appears at any required oral argument, while Mr. Friedman assists by preparing opening and reply briefs. In other words, your relationship with your client remains undisturbed.

Please call Mr. Friedman to discuss your need for an appellate brief. Contact us online or call 800-361-6554 (toll free).

Client Reviews
"I hired Mr. Friedman to represent my son in a criminal matter that could have landed him in jail. Nobody in our family had ever been involved with the criminal justice system before, so this was all very new to us. He was very patient, answered all of our questions, and made sure we understood everything each step of the way. By the time the case was over, my son had a reduced charge for which he only had to pay some fines." Anonymous
"Mr. Friedman represented me when I was one of several students caught with drugs in a college dorm room. I was set to graduate at the end of the semester, and thought this case would ruin my life. He got my charges dismissed, and the record expunged. This lawyer was a total lifesaver!" Anonymous
"Our daughter has mental health issues. She got into a scuffle with the police and was charged with assaulting an officer. Our attorney, Jim Friedman, was able to show the prosecutor and Judge that the real problem here was her mental stability. She was placed on probation and avoided jail time. Most other lawyers we spoke to refused to take this case, but Jim Friedman took it and got us a great result. Thank you Mr. Friedman!" Anonymous
"I had federal criminal charges and felt totally lost. I was one of who knows how many defendants in this case, and I read on the Internet that almost everyone in federal court end up with a prison sentence, so I was really scared. My first lawyer, who told me that I would probably spend at least some time in prison, barely gave me the time of day after I paid him. Then I hired Jim Friedman to represent me. He stayed with me throughout the entire process. He was always available to answer my questions, and never let me lose hope. He negotiated aggressively with the federal prosecutor and I ended up with a short term of probation. I knew I would get convicted of something, but this lawyer kept me out of jail." Anonymous
"The only part of my trial that was better than watching Mr. Friedman question the witnesses was when the jury came out and said “not guilty” over and over again. You have to see this lawyer in court!" Anonymous
