New York’s Women Leaders In The Law
Friedman & Friedman, Attorneys at Law
Divorce & Family Law
Family law has evolved significantly in the more than 35 years since Sari Friedman first began practicing law. But as a leading authority on divorce matters, Friedman has remained at the forefront of her field. And today, the practice she runs with her daughter Andrea is recognized throughout Long Island and the five boroughs of New York City, as well as Westchester County, for its zealous advocacy and personalized service.
“Our family-oriented drive is reflected in both our firm’s operations and the clients we help,” notes Sari, who, in addition to being AV Preeminent® rated by Martindale-Hubbell® and included in New York Metro Super Lawyers, received Hofstra University School of Law’s 2017 Women Leaders in Law award. “We understand the importance of family, and our growth has been informed by our collaborative, personal approach.”
Indeed, since becoming a named partner in 2014, Andrea, a Westchester resident, has helped grow the firm by successfully launching its office in White Plains. In 2017, Andrea was recognized by Long Island Business News as one of its “40 Under 40,” after being named to its “Ones to Watch” list in 2014. She also serves on the board of the Westchester Women’s Bar Association and as a member of the Moxxie Network, a mentoring program for women.
“Diligence is key in this field, and it helps that both of us love what we do,” Andrea says. “Everyone’s situation is different, and it’s always rewarding when you’re able to help clients move forward in their lives.”
