In a field judged primarily upon concrete results of cases, one may wonder where the place for accolades and awards is. The answer to that question is that awards act as recognition of one's ability in a chosen field and in the legal field; the accolades are only awarded to our profession's most highly regarded. To demonstrate, our founding partner Attorney Ian N. Friedman was the first ever recipient of the Lawyer of the Year Award by the Ohio Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, standing out as a "clear leader" in his area of practice. He has also been given the
President's Award from the OACDL on five separate occasions, has received the Cleveland State University's Distinguished Law Alumni Award in 2011 and the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association's William K. Thomas Professionalism Award in 2010. He was also selected for inclusion in the
Ohio Super Lawyers® list in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013. As a result of prestigious courtroom battles, Attorney Friedman was invited at the early age of forty to join the fellowship of the
American Board of Criminal Lawyers, a prestigious, invite-only organization with only a half dozen members in the State of Ohio and only two hundred members nationwide.
Emphasizing their abilities and determination, the other attorneys from Friedman & Frey, L.L.C. have also been individually included in these prominent organizations and recognized for their merit in the work they do. As a team made up of legal professionals recognized and honored nationwide, the firm is a collaboration of some of the most dynamic criminal attorneys in the state of Ohio, nationwide, and in the nations abroad.
Raising the Bar with Creativity & Collaboration
The legal field of criminal prosecution is one founded upon concrete principles and time-tested strategies. For this reason, an effective means of defending against such prosecution is to use creative thinking and unique resources. At Friedman & Frey, L.L.C., our criminal defense lawyers are trained to "think outside of the box" in all cases. This approach has resulted in repeated acquittals, dismissals, and reversals. This is the result of years of practicing criminal defense for some of the most complex criminal matters, such as complex white collar crimes, technology / Internet crimes, and sex crimes.
