FriedmanLaw attorney Mark R. Friedman was selected to the New Jersey Super Lawyers Rising Stars list for 2019.
Or rather, I was selected to the list.
It was gratifying. I’ve put together a lot of educational events recently for both the public, and other attorneys. I’ve been particularly pleased with Senior Citizens Law Day, a program I organize with the New Jersey Bar Foundation that provides legal information to seniors – both the elder law and estate planning work I do, and other topics of interest like scams and frauds that target seniors. Last year we had the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office speak on that, and this year we anticipate having the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office speak.
I’ve also served on the Executive Committee of the New Jersey State Bar Association’s Elder and Disability Law section for the past few years, advising the Section on legislation that affects seniors and people with disabilities, and organizing meetings and programs.
I think that these educational programs, and my work with the Bar, is a big part of why I was selected.
It’s nice to be recognized, and it’s a real honor to be picked alongside the other attorneys on the list. Many of the colleagues who I respect and admire most were named as Rising Stars in the past or as Super Lawyers now.
One of them, my colleague at the firm (and father), Larry Friedman, has been named to the Super Lawyers list every year since 2006. This year was no exception, and he was chosen for 2019.
Larry and I both really enjoy serving our clients and helping with elder law, Medicaid, long term care, nursing home, asset protection, wills, trusts, tax and estate planning, disabilities, guardianship, and other legal issues. If you have concerns involving one of these areas, please call or email us today.
