  • Eric Long is a true champion in this law firm
    Eric Long represented our son on an 18-month journey of intertwined cases. Eric was our rock. He truly treated us like "family" as others have stated in these reviews. He has total respect from prosecutors and judges alike. Eric's legal abilities are beyond reproach...he was truly amazing! This law firm is totallly professional. Others we engaged with were: Receptionist, Amanda Mustata, Legal Assistant Kerry Bynes, and Lawyer Maddy Grant (who would step in for Eric when there was a conflict in court timing). Each and everyone mentioned did an outstanding job in regards to our son's case. All members of the firm work closely together, so in fact, you will have a number of great lawyers representing you, just as we did. Prior to meeting Eric, we had retained a different law firm who could "talk the talk" but by no means could they deliver. We fired them and thank God we met Eric and retained him immediately. That was truly the best decision we ever made. Without a doubt, this entire law firm is the most knowledgeable and professional in the entire state! If you are searching for an extremely good, don't walk, to Eric Long. That will also be one of the best decisions you make.

  • THANK YOU for being someone who cares about making this world a better place.
    Dear Attorney Friedman; I am a resident of Pennington, NJ. I was able to view your interview on YouTube regarding the T.J. Lane case today. I saw you answer the reporter's questions with so much honesty, integrity and feeling, it made me write to you. Never, have I seen such a display of both professional and sincere reaction to a verdict by an attorney. I saw a man who displayed honest dismay and sadness for the situation he had to represent. I spend my middle age life helping others. I live simply, I charge half the going rate for my services because I can. You appear to be a man who takes his skills and experience in a similar manner. I write this to say THANK YOU for being someone who cares about making this world a better place.

  • Ian is the Best - Period!
    I was facing life in prison for a crime I did not commit. After an initial conviction during a bench trial, Ian was able to get me a new trial based upon previously undiscovered evidence and I was found not guilty by a jury at the second trial almost immediately upon beginning deliberations. Ian saved my life.

  • Best Lawyer in Cleveland!
    Ian was exceptional. He was extremely knowledgeable of the legal system. He clearly communicated the legal options. He took action to gather all evidence and thoroughly reviewed it and the facts of the case. He built a strong strategy and effectively communicated it to me. He was direct, honest and fair. He was compassionate to me and my family. He not only helped me with the criminal aspects of my case. but also with personal aspects of my life. I highly recommend his services to anyone that has a need for his superior legal services. I can't say enough as to how impressed I was with Ian!

  • Amazing!
    This guy was fantastic. He did everything and more that was asked of him. He is very expensive, but as with most things you get what you pay for.

  • Most Knowledgable Defense Available for Child Pornography.
    I hired Ian at one of the most vulnerable times in my life after my son was arrested in the federal system for an unspeakable crime. The dire picture that unfolded was desperate and required expertise that was found in Ian and associates. He possesses deep experience in this area of law and was able to spell out an overview of my son's defense in the first meeting. Not only did he know how to approach the case strategically, he harbored an equally compassionate understanding of the devastation that this crime manifests in the family. He and his associates provided an outstanding defense and Ian provided great emotional support to me. I am eternally grateful for the efforts of Ian and his team. They will never be forgotten!
