EXCELLENT ATTORNEY

I have known Paul for several years. He is one of the top attorney in Arizona for medical malpractice and personal injury. He has a JD, a masters, and a Ph.D. He is an ABOTA member and a specialist. As far as credentials it doesn't get better than Paul. And, he is down to earth, respectable, and an overall good guy - someone I am proud to call a friend. His breadth of knowledge - wide; his humaneness - appreciated; his opinions - valued. I have been with Paul at depositions, court hearings, client meetings, settlement conferences, and arbitrations. He is persuasive and kind at the same time. He does his research, writes his own pleadings, and is well-versed in the subject at hand. Having taught at multiple medical schools, Paul's legal knowledge on medical malpractice exceeds nearly all attorneys. I would highly recommend Paul Friedman.
