Mr. Friedman has personally appeared at thousands of Worker’s Compensation hearings over the last thirty years.

He has appeared before the Appellate Courts of the State of New York and before the New York State Court of Appeals, the highest court in the state. He has served on the Legislative Committee of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association and as an Arbitrator for the American Arbitration Association.
