Upon entering private practice at Librett Friedland, LLP, Mr. Friedland has handled many diverse aspects of the law, with special emphasis on matrimonial and family law. In addition to practicing matrimonial law, Mr. Friedland has also represented clients in real estate matters, both residential and commercial, business transactions and business succession planning, and sports and entertainment law.

During the time Mr. Friedland has been in practice, the area of matrimonial and family law has evolved substantially as a result of the enactment of the Equitable Distribution Law in 1980.

The practice of matrimonial law can bring out the worst in people as a result of emotions overriding a practical solution to very difficult problems.
