Ian Friedman and Eric Nemecek Open Friedman Nemecek Long & Grant, L.L.C., L.L.C.


Attorney Ian N. Friedman and his team are proud to announce the opening of Friedman Nemecek Long & Grant, L.L.C. L.L.C., a new Ohio law firm lead by Attorney Friedman and Attorney Eric Nemecek. Since January 1, 2016, the seven-attorney firm has offered the same hard-hitting criminal defense counsel Ian Friedman has become known for, while also branching out into new legal territory, as well.

As profiled in a recent issue of Ohio Jewish News, the new firm was formed as both Friedman and Nemecek exited McCarthy, Lebit, Crystal and Liffman Co., LPA. Attorney Friedman had originally merged his firm, Ian Friedman and Associates (which included Attorney Nemecek) with McCarthy, Lebit, Crystal and Liffman Co., LPA in order to create a "one-stop shop" for any client's legal needs. However, Friedman and Nemecek have come to feel a more personal and criminal law-focused approach will benefit those they feel they can best serve. "Our clients are looking forward to getting back to the smaller, more comfortable environment," Nemecek said.

Branching Out to Digital Security

Along with the primary focus on criminal defense, Friedman Nemecek Long & Grant, L.L.C. L.L.C. will also offer services to companies looking to improve their digital security. Specifically, the firm will help determine any susceptibility to computer hacking that threatens consumers' personal information.

There has been a growing need for this type of service among countless companies who store their customers' personal and financial information to make transactions. As Attorney Friedman explained to the magazine, when consumer information is illegally mined from a private company's digital storage, that company can then be exposed to claims against them from the customers who trusted them with their information.

Dedicated to the Protection of Your Rights

With Friedman Nemecek Long & Grant, L.L.C. L.L.C., Attorney Friedman is looking to continue and even further the unparalleled criminal defense work he has become known for. Not only has he maintained his outstanding legal team, but is also bringing on new talent as well: Attorney Eric Long has also joined the firm. Long, who was once a student of Attorney Friedman's at Ohio Marshall College of Law, told the paper how excited he was to join his teacher. "There's really no one better to practice with in the criminal realm. It's a very exciting time for us," Long told the paper.

For Attorney Friedman, the firm is an exciting new beginning—but not the only one in place for 2016. As he revealed to the Ohio Jewish News, there are already plans in place to open a second office in Chapel Hill, NC by the summer.
