Friedman & Friedman, Attorneys at Law

Child Custody, Divorce, Family, Fathers Rights

For 35 years, Sari Friedman has remained at the forefront of matrimonial and family law thanks to her knowledge and experience in the field and her leadership on novel divorce matters. In particular, Friedman is known as a fierce proponent of equal rights for both genders in the areas of child custody and economic parity and recognition.

With regard to custody and parenting, Friedman has long advocated for fathers’ rights, serving as general counsel of the Fathers’ Rights Association of New York State and Long Island for the past 25 years. She has also represented a vast number of women who appreciate her firm’s zealous advocacy and personalized approach. And recently, she has been handling emerging custody issues relating to same-sex divorce.

Reflecting her influence in the bar, Friedman has been AV Preeminent® rated by Martindale-Hubbell®, and included in New York Metro Super Lawyers, Who’s Who in American Law, Rue Ratings’ Best Attorneys of America, National Advocates’ Top 100 Lawyers (Matrimonial & Family Law), and New York magazine’s Women Leaders in the Law section. In 2012, she also received the Long Island Business News’ Leadership in Law Award.

Friedman is joined as a partner at the firm by her daughter Andrea, who has built her own reputation for aggressive yet compassionate advocacy. In 2014, Andrea was named to the Long Island Business News’ Ones to Watch in Law list, and recently she was selected along with Friedman as a Top Attorney in North America by Who’s Who. “Andrea is a quick study,” Friedman notes, “and that allows her to go toe-to-toe with attorneys who have been practicing for much longer.”
