Testimonials

Great experience with this attorney.
I live out of state and hired Mr. Friedman to represent a relative charged with a violent crime and drug offenses in New Jersey. I was very nervous about hiring a lawyer to handle this case without meeting them in person. From the very beginning, Mr. Friedman made me feel very comfortable. He always stayed in touch with me and answered all of my questions. He also got most of the charges dismissed. When it was all over, all that remained was the least serious charge in the case, and my NJ relative was sentenced to a short term of probation and some fines. I am very happy with his work and would recommend him to anyone with a criminal case.

A criminal attorney second to none!
Mr. James S. Friedman Esq. is a really knowledgeable criminal defense attorney. I hired him because of his professionalism over the phone and his attention to every detail, I explained about the sequence of events that happened to my husband. My husband was in a really bad situation that could of sent him away for a very long time. It was a very old case and most of the original people were retired or gone. Mr. Friedman put in a lot of work running around trying to locate files etc. because of this. And in the end Mr. Friedman was able to get my husband sentenced to only 180 days! The outcome is better then I could have ever imagined. Basically my husband will be home by 2017. The time that he was given is concurrent with the time, that he is currently serving in prison. It took Mr. Friedman only three months to adjudicate my husband's case! I could always reach him on the phone or email! One time I couldn't get him on the phone and before I could hang up he was calling in, on the call waiting! He took his time to answer any questions I had even on weekends! Time never seemed to be an issue for him. I called him at 9:00 at night and he would pick up and not rush me off the phone. I would highly recommend him to anyone that needs a criminal defense lawyer. My husband's first language is not english and Mr. Friedman was very patient and understanding with him. If I ever need a lawyer again, he is the one on my speed dial. Professionalism with five star service is what you get with Mr. James S. Friedman Esq. His fees are worth every penny and he is willing to work with all financial situations. Thank you for helping me and my family get our husband/daddy back. We are forever greatful to you.

I'd use him again in a minute!
We retained Mr. Friedman to handle my son's case in New York City. We were worried because he is just finishing school, and has his whole life in front of him. Having a criminal record would have obviously hurt him badly. Mr. Friedman understood this, and got the charges downgraded to something on the level of a traffic ticket.

Kind, Compassionate, and Great at What He Does
My charges were the result of my long-standing battle with addiction. I needed a lawyer who understood not only my case and the law, but also my personal circumstances. Jim Friedman was my man. I was not only spared jail time, but he resolved my case in a way that allowed me to get much needed treatment and counseling. Life looks a lot better now.

A great man in a storm!
Being charged with federal crimes was bad enough. But I not only needed a great result in the case - I also had to protect my professional license. My life and my livelihood were both on the line. Attorney Jim Friedman delivered everything I needed. By the time it was all over, I received a brief term of probation, paid some fines, and kept my license. Without him, I would have been left with nothing.

Fantastic Job - Great Result
I hired Mr. Friedman to resolve my drug case. I had a large quantity of drugs in my car, and was facing between 5 and 10 years. Mr. Friedman found all kinds of problems with the State's case. He filed a pile of motions, and was really aggressive in Court. He went to Court as many times as it took to get me what I wanted. In the end, I was placed on a short term of probation.

Once Again - A Great Result
Mr. Friedman has been my attorney for several years. I recently had to call him again for a new case. As always, he took the time to explain my situation and answer all of my questions. He was with me in court for every hearing, and met with the prosecutor about the charges. In the end, he got the charges downgraded to something very minor. Thanks again - you are the BEST!

GREAT JOB!
We live across the country, but have a relative in New Jersey who got into some trouble and needed help. We found out about the problem at about 3:00 a.m. on the morning of a court date, and immediately located Mr. Friedman on the Internet and called him. We told him we had a real emergency, and that we needed help fast. He was on the phone with us for an hour discussing the case. We retained him and he was in court that morning. He later got the charges thrown out.

Awesome Lawyer.
When the case, started, I was charged with a first-degree robbery. Then I hired Mr. Friedman. He was very aggressive, investigated all of the facts, and negotiated hard with the prosecutor. In the end, I was charged with violating a municipal ordinance. Everything else was dismissed. Glad Mr. Friedman was in my corner. He literally saved my life!

He literally saved my life!
I was falsely accused in a robbery and was facing 20 years. Mr. Friedman investigated the facts, met with me to discuss the case numerous times, and spoke with the prosecutor. I don't even remember how many times we went to court, but he was willing to go as many times as it took to get the job done. In the end, he got the charges dropped. If you want a lawyer who really cares about his clients, Mr. Friedman is your man!!!!

Reasonable fees, Excellent result.
I had never been in trouble before, and was really scared about what could happen with my case. I spoke with several other lawyers, but they all asked for astronomical fees, and did not really seem to care about me or my situation. Mr. Friedman guided me through each step of the process all the way to a dismissal of the charges. I have since referred him to a friend who told me they are also very happy with him.

Praise From a Very Satisfied Client!
Mr. Friedman provided fantastic representation at every stage of my case. He was open, honest, and gave frank advice that was always correct. He was also always available to answer questions, and remained in touch with me even after hours and on weekends. He really seemed to understand how stressful the case was for me, and treated me like a human being. I was also very pleased with the result.

Great Lawyer.

Very satisfied!
Compassionate lawyer who really cares about his clients. Always stayed in touch and answered all of my questions. Helped me work through a bad situation and got a great result.

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."

"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
