Why Choose Friedman, James & Buchsbaum LLP?
Friedman, James & Buchsbaum LLP’s laser focus allows us to give each client the attention they need and deserve; we do not rely on paralegals or assistants to correspond with our clients, so a client will always speak to the partner who is handling their case.
All 3 of our partners; Bernard D. Friedman, John P. James, and Andrew V. Buchsbaum, have received an “AV® Preeminent” rating from Martindale-Hubbel®.
What is the Martindale- Hubbel® Rating System?
The Martin-Hubbel® reviews and rating system is an amalgamation of independent peer reviews as well as reviews from clients. The “AV® Preeminent” rating is the highest honor they award, so we take great pride in our firm’s well-earned accolades.
What about Noteworthy Cases?
As a firm, our clients have received tens of millions of dollars for accidents or mishaps. Perhaps our most notable case resulted in a 16 million dollar verdict for our plaintiff. After being informed of the accident, our on-scene investigation and research showed the offending driver, as well as their employer, violated federal and state law by not requiring the driver to possess a commercial license. The insufficient hiring standards and driver training of the employer was a result of gross negligence. While there is no universal database for recoveries awarded, but we are confident the recovery was one of the largest in New Jersey’s history.
We never rest on our laurels and continue to ensure our clients receive the compensation they need and deserve:
- $3.85 million – Staten Island Ferry deckhand, seriously injured by falling rescue boat (2018)
- $3 million – A Local three electrician injured by a fallen ladder
- $1.175 million – Injured cruise passenger (2016)
