“I had joint custody of my two small children when my wife and I divorced. Then she planned to move away with them to another state. My attorney couldn’t help me so I decided to hire someone the bar association recommended regarding custody cases, Mark Friedman. Mark got me shared parenting so I could still legally be involved. Within a few years, it was clear that my kids would have a more stable home life and be able to go to a better school if they lived with me. Mark guided me through the process and got me full custody of my son and daughter. They’re both adults now, living nearby, and I’m blessed to be a grandfather. Mark’s the man!” T.W.

“Divorce is one of the most emotional and stressful life events. Mark has not lost sight of this, even though he has been through these proceedings hundreds of times. One of the many things I appreciated about Mark was that he was always available to discuss problems or concerns. When I called, I was often able to meet him at his office the same day. I am very happy with the results of the divorce, especially the fact that I received custody of my son.” J.T.

“Mark did a phenomenal job getting me full custody of my four-year-old daughter. I’m a worry wart and tend to imagine the worst-case scenario. So, I was on edge when I knew I had to go to court. Right from the start, I was impressed that Mark qualified me before taking my case. He’s a no B.S. pit bull in the courtroom and put me completely at ease.” D. M.

“If it wasn’t for Mark, I don’t know where I’d be. After 30 years of what I thought was a good marriage, I found out my wife was having an affair. I was in such shock and denial. Thanks to my sister, I found Mark and he took care of everything, including getting me spousal support. Mark is a compassionate, hard-nosed attorney—just who you want in your corner.” J.F.

“When I first met Mark Friedman, I thought his blunt style was a detriment and soon discovered it was an asset. Because he is so candid and detail-oriented, Mark didn’t waste any time or my money. He advised me to keep a journal of my questions so I could address them all at once and not over many phone calls. Mark educated me on the court system, especially how it pertained to the legal and financial needs of my adult handicapped child. I was fully prepared and got what I wanted.” L.H.

“I signed the birth certificates of my two children when they were born and, even though I never married their mother, I assumed I had parental rights. When my relationship ended, I realized I didn’t. That’s when I hired Mark Friedman. Mark did an impeccable job establishing my rights as a father and looking out for the best interests of my children. To protect them from being in a toxic, volatile environment with their mother, I became the primary caregiver with my home as their primary residence. Because of Mark, my children are safe.” L.B.

“As a former Army JAG, Mark Friedman had the specialized knowledge I needed when I divorced my husband, who was in the military. He helped me get my fair share of health benefits and retirement funds. When my friend, also a military wife, was looking for a divorce attorney, I highly recommended Mark and he took good care of her, too.” M.L.

“Many of my friends complained about having attorneys that took several days to respond to their questions and concerns. Mark Friedman did a good job promptly answering my questions and educating me on child custody issues. He eased my worries and made me feel like I was his only client.” M.L.

“When I filed for divorce, I had a lot of fear and that was partly because my lawyer was a wimp who was racking up frivolous charges. Then, I switched to Mark Friedman. Mark is a lethal combination of soldier, bodyguard and big brother. Because he’s so prepared and confident, he intimidates other lawyers. Mark gave me the courage I needed to stand up for myself.” P.W.

“Mark Friedman was right! I could have justified what was happening in my marriage and delayed the inevitable. Mark helped me see that there is a better life after divorce and he me guided there. He’s easy to talk to and a good listener who provided excellent advice.” M.M.

“My divorce case had been languishing for a year. Then, Mark Friedman took it on and got it done in a month. Mark doesn’t play games or waste time. When he goes to court, he comes prepared. I have a tremendous amount of respect for Mark. As we conclude my child custody case, I realize we won’t be working together any more. I’m going to miss him.” B.A.

“Getting divorced is one of the biggest stresses in life and I knew I needed someone I could depend on. My friend recommended Mark Friedman because he was impressed with how he handled his divorce—as his ex-wife’s attorney. From the first time I met Mark, he felt like an old friend. He is caring and very professional. By practicing the art of compromise, he helped us come to a fair, amicable conclusion.” J.G.

“I’m a 6-foot five-inch, 350-pound former football player and Mark Friedman intimidated me. There was no way I would ever lie to him. He is on top of his game and in control. I had never been to court in my life but I wasn’t nervous because Mark clearly explained the process and managed my expectations every step of the way. There were no surprises and I got everything I wanted from the settlement. I send all my divorcing friends to Mark.” S.H.

“The first divorce attorney I worked with just wasn’t listening to me and took a long time to respond when I called or emailed him. At the suggestion of a friend, I called Mark Friedman on a Friday and he quickly returned my call on Saturday morning. Mark is prompt, courteous and ethical. He validated and honored what I needed to leave my marriage with. Because Mark worked with me to get through the process as quickly as possible, he made it easier on my children and kept expenses down.” A.M.

“I would trust Mark Friedman with my life. Mark and I worked together about 25 years ago and reconnected recently when I decided to get divorced. He showed the same devotion to me as I remember he showed to all his clients. I’ve since recommended him to several friends and he has consistently gone above and beyond for them, too.” J.K.

“If you want what you deserve then you need to call Mark Friedman. Over the years, Mark represented me in two divorces. He tells me the truth, not necessarily what I want to hear. He doesn’t sugar coat anything. Mark’s never been wrong and I’ve always gotten my money’s worth.” S.F.

“My wife cheated on me. I chose Mark Friedman because he represented my friend who had also suffered from infidelity. He made her husband cry on the stand. Mark is kind and thoughtful and can be abrasive and brutally honest. He wouldn’t let my emotions take over by agreeing to file unnecessary, vindictive motions. Mark saved me further heartache and I’ll always be grateful for that.” A.T.
