Larry Friedman is the best! Have used him for years. Knows everything concerning special needs. Helped with conservatorship, and guardianship for our daughter who has special needs. Even after moving out of state, he helped with transferring guardianship. Know he will always be there to help.

Larry, I cannot thank you enough for all you did to help me.  Your knowledge and expertise were unparalleled and I could not have asked for better representation.  I felt so protected sitting next to you in that courtroom and trusted “J” and I were in the best of hands.  Lawyer “A” was correct in referring you and I am so very grateful.  It was the best dime I ever spent :).  All the best to you and your family.  With sincere appreciation.

Lawrence Friedman provided a professional, caring, and very practical approach to our elder care legal issues that we could understand and appreciate. After using another lawyer for approximately 4 years, (who was unable to settle our legal issues) Lawrence Friedman secured an equitable settlement within a few months. My wife and I would highly recommend his services!

Mr. L. Friedman is a knowledgeable and professional attorney.  He is timely in his responses.  Mr. Friedman is an excellent communicator, whether on the phone, through email, or in conference.   He is accommodating with his appointments, and the scheduling of our meetings, which was greatly appreciated.  He was eager to assist me and do any necessary research required.  I also wanted to mention that Mr. Mark Friedman went above and beyond as well.  He graciously contributed to the research and counsel.  When I left Mr. L. Friedman’s office, I thought, this is exactly the way an attorney should be.  His counsel left me feeling well informed and therefore comforted.  I highly recommend  Friedman Law.

FriedmanLaw was very clear in what my family could expect during each phase of the case and demonstrated a keen awareness of the possible directions and options. We appreciated Larry’s and Mark’s compassion with our situation. Prior to engaging FriedmanLaw, we felt like things were out of control and had no plan or direction. Larry and Mark provided sage advice about how to pursue our case but reduce our stress. I admire how Larry and Mark remained clear and calm even in the most adversarial situations with opposing council. I consider our outcome to be better than we could have hoped for. For Larry’s and Mark’s overall skill, management and demeanor, I would definitely recommend FriedmanLaw to others.

When I needed estate planning and legal counseling for my parents, I was referred to Friedman Law through a business colleague. I was incredibly impressed with the professional manner, patience, and courtesy in which Friedman Law interacted with my parents. Larry Friedman ensured both of my parents understood the content of the legal documents, and answered all of our questions. Both my mother and father felt secure working with Friedman Law, and our family continues to do so present day. I highly recommend Friedman Law if you are charged with caring for your parents, as this firm absolutely ensures your family’s best interest is addressed.

I worked with Larry Friedman as my Elder care lawyer to deal with my mother’s affairs during an increasingly stressful time, when I felt truly “lost in the woods.” Because of prolonged illness, my mother needed to go into assisted living and then a nursing home–and he provided expert advice on estate planning and suggestions on superb facilities for her care. He truly saved my sanity and my life. Along with his superlative knowledge of Eldercare law, much of which he was involved in writing, he treated me with kindness, patience, and compassion. All I can say is: “God bless Larry Friedman.”


My husband and I sought Mr. Friedman’s expertise in devising a will for our family. Our situation was complicated due to second marriages with children/step children. We both felt overwhelmed at the task of finding a fair distribution of our assets and how to best meet both our needs in the present, when older, and after death. Mr. Friedman’s patience, years of experience and knowledge in elder care law and Wills, enabled him not only to provide us practical legal advice and a sharp analysis of our situation, but was also able to reduce complex legal issues into simple concepts that we could understand. I would highly recommend FriedmanLaw not only for their expertise and vast knowledge but their caring and patient approach.
-BARBARA, New Jersey


Mr. Friedman is a dedicated attorney whose vast; in depth knowledge of the law is evident within the first few minutes of meeting him. He takes the time to listen and has always answered our questions in detail. In addition, his kindness and empathy about sensitive and
personal issues make it easy and comfortable to converse with him freely.
-DAN & LORI, New Jersey


Friedman Law has been an invaluable partner, expertly guiding me through the complexities associated with my parents’ finances/estates. Their extensive experience, responsiveness, and empathy made the process much less difficult than it could otherwise have been.
-GARY, New Jersey


When Karen’s mother became disabled, Friedman Law devised a strategy that provided for her long term care while preserving significant family assets. It was a great resource for advice and information during a very difficult time. Friedman Law has helped our family with all our elder care and estate planning needs including wills, health care directives, and powers of attorney.
-KAREN & DON, New Jersey

-JOHN & LINDA, New Jersey


We were very pleased with how knowledgeable Mr. Friedman is about the issues our family needed to address. His recommendations clearly addressed our needs. And we really appreciated his working with us to achieve our goals.


I have worked with Mr. Lawrence Friedman for over a decade, having sought assistance several times in navigating some complex issues re establishment of Special Needs and Supplemental Needs Trusts, Medicaid and related will provisions.  In all cases, Mr. Friedman has demonstrated an extensive understanding of these areas, quickly grasped the particular concerns and support needed, and developed proposals and solutions that were invaluable in addressing the issues our family was dealing with.  I have absolute confidence in Mr. Friedman, and have no reservations in wholeheartedly recommending him.

I have known Larry Friedman as a friend and colleague for almost two decades. Because we have practiced in the same field, we worked together on numerous cases and he has been my “go to” referral source in Central New Jersey since 1995. I am confident that any client referred to Larry will receive top quality legal service He is extremely smart, meticulous in his work and particularly talented at dissecting and solving complex legal issues. Results oriented, he cares about his clients and considers not only the law but also the human factor when engaged in the planning process – whether the matter is simple or complicated.
We have spoken on countless Continuing Legal Education panels throughout the years. His extensive legal knowledge never ceases to amaze me. His longstanding and continuous contribution to the knowledge base of the legal community and the community at large is quite admirable.

Mark Friedman inherited his dad’s acute intelligence and pursuit of excellence. I have followed his young career with amazement. For example, we recently shared the podium and spoke before over 100 New Jersey lawyers. Not only was his presentation innovative in a cutting edge area of law, but his delivery style exuded poise and confidence.
I recommend FriedmanLaw without reservation. If you or someone you know has an estate planning, elder or disabilities law issue to address, do yourself a favor and talk to Larry or Mark.

My business partner and I have worked with the Friedman Law Firm for over 15 years. Larry is knowledgeable and caring, and a real expert in Elder Law. His son Mark, is a wonderful addition to the firm.

It has been a pleasure working with Larry for over 10 years! He has a reputation for being a “Go To Attorney” for law related to the needs of the disabled, the elderly and others with special needs. He is a specialist in setting up trusts to help insure that there are funds available in the future to meet a person’s long-term care needs at home or in a facility”
-CONNIE [Owner care management firm], North Jersey


Larry is an invaluable resource and one of the few New Jersey attorneys I refer clients to that need help with special needs, elder law, and estate planning matters. I would trust Larry with my own case and strongly recommend him without reservation. Over the years I have received only the best responses from clients and friends whom I referred. As an attorney practicing in eastern Pennsylvania in similar subject matters (special needs, elder law, trust and estate planning), the best advice I can give to anyone seeking assistance in New Jersey is “Call Larry”…”
