          Friedman Razenhofer 5Star Review

          Mr. Ranzenhofer and his attorneys were great! My case was handled quickly and I got a great result – $300,000. I fell at my doctor’s office, so I knew it was a hard case. Mr. Ranzenhofer developed a strategy that got me a great result. I highly recommend Mr. Ranzenhofer and his team of attorneys.

            As a Landlord it is hard to keep track of all the laws and what your rights are. Mr. Friedman helped me with many different situations, offering advice and relief in some of the most stressful situations. He was also the most knowledgable attorney I spoke to in the field.

            5 Cindy L.Zappo via

            Robert Friedman has been my legal counsel for nearly 25 years representing my property management company. You will find the Western New York market literally inundated with lots of attorneys to choose from. You may ask, what makes Robert Friedman the right choice for me?
            Simply put, he sets the bar in conduct, dedication to his clients and work. His legal expertise in a word, is expert.
            Finally, he is an attorney you can trust, who is honest and will work for YOU!

            My husband and I have been clients of Mr. Friedman’s for several years. He has been very helpful in putting together and updating our wills, helping us through the purchase of 2 homes, and getting a small business off the ground. Mr. Friedman is a good listener and really cares about his clients. He is also very intelligent and business-savvy.

            5 Gail via

            I have never dealt with an attorney or law firm as efficient and conscientious as Mr. Friedman and his employees. I came to him with my father’s estate, sale of a home and other legal matters. I spoke DIRECTLY with him many times. I did NOT have to “leave messages” constantly or get shuffled around to other people while waiting for a return phone call. HE addressed legal matters directly with me. I NEVER had to wait endlessly for a return email from him either. He answered them on the same day or within 24 hours.

            I believe his knowledge and expertise is unsurpassed in the legal field, but also in handling his clients. He is extremely considerate of YOU and YOUR situation, questions and concerns. Also, his fees are very reasonable compared to other attorneys.

            The individuals on his staff are top-notch and very competent as well. They were all very courteous, understanding and knowledgeable. They went out of their way for me as well.

            I could not be more satisfied with the treatment and attention to my affairs and legal issues. If you are looking for the PERFECT attorney, Mr.Friedman is the one to choose. You won’t be disappointed by him or his staff. They are all amazing individuals to work with. It was truly my pleasure to have met him and to have him handle my legal affairs. He is truly one-in-a-million and I most highly recommend him!
