Woodland Hills Employment Law Lawyer

Overview

Thank you for visiting my website. Looking for an attorney can be stressful during a difficult time like this, especially finding counsel who you can trust, and will represent you the way you deserve to be. My team and I are here to do just that. In that regard, let me tell you a little about myself.

I am the founding partner at The Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman, P.C. I am a Plaintiff's attorney who represents, you, the consumer. I pride myself in my unique ability to force Defendants to come to the table with favorable settlements with my clients, by balancing a direct bulldog mentality with a patience and understanding required to be successful in any time of resolution. I concentrate my practice in consumer litigation, including fair debt collection, employment matters, lemon law, fair credit reporting and personal injury litigation. Prior to opening my practice, I was the managing attorney at a top consumer litigation firm, beginning in July of 2002.

In 2014, I was awarded lead counsel rating in the legal disciplines of Consumer Protection, Lemon Law and Civil Litigation, by the prestigious Lead Counsel Review Board. In that same year, I was voted by the American Society of Legal Advocates as one of the Top 40 lawyers under 40 in the entire nation. I have authored various books to help consumers, including an 18 pages Consumer Rights Guide that encompasses several areas of Law Including Employment and Debtors issues, as well as a Book Entitled, "7 Deadly Mistakes that Will Wreck Your Car Crash Case," both of which are available at no cost on this website.

I have successfully litigated over 5,000 individual Plaintiff's cases, mainly using the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and the California Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (RFDCPA), as well as Lemon Law, Employment and Personal Injury/Wrongful Death matters. I am regarded as a one of the predominant Plaintiff's practitioners in California. My vast array of experience and knowledge in these practice areas along with my extensive trial skills, make me one of the premiere advocates within these areas of law. In conjunction with my consumer litigation practice, I have spoken as a guest lecturer before the California Association of Collectors, and will be speaking this year at the Association of Credit and Collection Professionals' (ACA) annual national conference, both groups whose members I have filed several individual and class action lawsuits against, on behalf of wrong consumers.

I also focus a significant portion of my practice on class action litigation. I have, over the past several years, orchestrated nation-wide consumer driven class litigation before a number of state and federal courts. I have been lead or co- counsel in over 100 national class actions in the last 4 years. This includes class actions against some of the nation's largest banks, credit card companies and other fortune 500 companies. The majority of my class action experience is in litigation involving TCPA (Telephone Consumer Protection Act), FDCPA, RFDCPA, CA Penal Code 630, et seq., CA Business and Professions Code §17200, et seq. and misrepresentation cases.

I was recently part of the class action Gehrich, et al v Chase Bank, et al, which was approved preliminarily as the one of the biggest TCPA class action settlements in US jurisprudence history and also recently, Friedman v. Los Angeles Clippers and Dancer v L.A. times, both of which achieved final approval status in 2014.

I was admitted to both the Illinois Bar and the California Bar in 2002, as well as the Pennsylvania Bar in 2010. I have been admitted to practice before the U.S. District for the Central District of Illinois and the US District for the Northern, Eastern, Southern and Central Districts of California and District of Colorado, and have argued in front of the Ninth Circuit court of appeals. I earned my Juris Doctor degree from Loyola Law School in 2001 and my undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1998. I was born and raised in Cleveland Ohio.

Feel free to contact me via phone or email at any time. I pride myself in being quickly responsive to your communications and look forward to assisting you with any legal issue you may have.

Todd is one of the best attorney's around. He has personally handled my cases and has always kept in touch with me to keep me informed of the progress of each case. He has won every case for me and resolved the issue with very favorable results. If he cannot take a case, he always has a colleague he can and has referred me to to help me with my issue. If you need an attorney who takes a personal interest in your cases, Todd if the one. I have and will continue to refer him to my friends and family who need legal help.

First and foremost, I was not prompted, promised anything, paid, etc. to write this review. I cannot say enough amazing things about Todd Friedman and his team: Personable, dedicated, passionate, non-stereotypical lawyers, who get the job done until all options are exhausted. Todd and his colleagues assisted me with some matters, which in the end, I was very pleased with the outcome. I have been with him since 2010 and plan to stick with his firm for as long as they are around. Thank you!

Todd Friedman is what I look for, not only in an attorney, but in all of my business associations. He is quick to respond to questions in a clear, honest fashion. I have had a successful conclusion to our legal matter that was handled with complete candor, professional response, and fair compensation to me as a result of his representation. I have recommended several clients to his office, including my fiancee. I highly recommend the Law Offices of Todd Friedman, and will continue to do so.
