ANSWERING THE CALL
Friedman & Friedman is a matrimonial and family law firm serving clients on Long Island, in Westchester and in the New York City boroughs. The firm’s key to growth has been “hard work, good service, being on top of legal trends and the law, along with quality work [and] answering people’s phone calls,” says Sari Friedman, senior partner at Friedman & Friedman.
Quick Tip: “Recognizing staff talent, recognizing the value they add, recognizing you can’t do things on your own and valuing your employees who do well for you [defines a great leader].”
As the firm has grown, it has overcome challenges by “being properly staffed to handle what we need to handle,” says Friedman. “We work hard to stay on top of things.” In leading Friedman & Friedman, she has understood “the need to make sure that things don’t get out of control and that you’re on top of things at all times.” Over the next few years, the goal for Friedman & Friedman is continued growth, based on “the ability of [partner Andrea Friedman] and other lawyers to generate more new business. In other words, more rainmaking from them,” says Sari Friedman.
