Prior to co-founding the firm of Librett Friedland, LLP, in 1978, Mr. Friedland was a staff attorney with the NassauCounty Legal Aid Society, handling all aspects of criminal defense.

The practice of matrimonial law can bring out the worst in people as a result of emotions overwriting a practical solution to very difficult problems. While Mr. Friedland has and will fight for his clients’ rights and has and will litigate every facet of his clients’ cases; nonetheless he is a proponent of a more civilized approach to the resolution of matters, as evidenced by his commitment to the collaborative divorce process for which he has earned certification.
