Rick Friedman built his reputation representing regular people injured by large corporations and government entities. He has won large verdicts in difficult cases in the fields of personal injury, defamation, insurance bad faith, and business torts. Over time, other lawyers began coming to him, asking for help in overcoming defense tactics that distort the truth. Eventually, this led to Rick writing four best-selling books for trial lawyers: Rules of the Road, Polarizing the Case, Becoming a Trial Lawyer, The Elements of Trial, and The Way of the Trial Lawyer. As the firm grew, Rick, with the help of the highly accomplished trial teams at Friedman | Rubin, won verdicts that have made the world safer and more fair for average citizens. Four of these verdicts have been ranked in the top ten verdicts in the United States in the years they were returned. See our verdicts and news pages for details.
