Practice/Organization Description

Mission

ROBERT FREEDMAN is an experienced lawyer in Los Angeles, California, representing clients from San Diego to San Francisco.

If you are involved in a lawsuit, it can be very time consuming, distracting, and expensive. As such, we approach each matter carefully and with the utmost due diligence, whether it be preparing and filing a complaint, responding to a complaint, or exploring options to resolve the dispute prior to litigation. We find this approach tends to resolve the matters that can be resolved before trial, quicker, and allows for a better and more efficient results should the matter proceed to trial. We pride ourselves on constant communication with our client, providing timely and accurate reporting. Further, we pride ourselves on exploring creative and unique methods to resolve cases, which often lead to better results than letting the case proceed to jury trial.

For business issues, we approach each business as if it were our own. Not only do we focus on providing quick, thorough, and decisive legal advice in plain English so that the client and their customers can focus on the business, not the legal, we bring real world business experience and can offer assistance in business development, strategy, finance, and management. From setting up your business plan and corporation to assisting with your social media campaign, we can assist.
