I would recommend Friedman Schuman law firm to anyone and everyone! I first contacted them and talked to attorney Robert Nemeroff, He was very thorough in asking me all the initial questions and information that was needed to start my case, he’s very good about returning phone calls and emails. From that point Gail Sciolla took it from there, she was EXTREMELY helpful in guiding me through the whole process. I was in a serious car accident and had a hurt shoulder, she was great in helping me deal with Workers Comp, my physical therapy, the insurance company and everyone involved. She was extremely efficient and thorough in everything that we discussed. Don’t know what I would have done without her help. Again, I would recommend Friedman Schuman to everyone. Since this was my first time dealing with anything like what I was involved in with my accident they were absolutely helpful, courteous and again very efficient and on top of everything.

Melissa and her team worked with us for nearly three years. They were absolutely amazing from start to finish! We were confident from the very first second we talked with Melissa that we had the best firm out there. And yes, we received a great settlement, but it goes much further than that. They truly care for their clients. Their compassion could easily be felt each and every time we talked. They made the whole experience much easier to deal with. Words will never be able to express our gratitude towards Melissa and her team.

Thank you to Derek and especially Brett he was sweet, caring and thoughtful of my feelings throughout the whole process when you have someone who shows genuine compassion it makes the process much easier. I HIGHLY recommend this law firm!!!!

Words can’t express my family and I’s gratitude towards Brett Kaminsky and his team. Going through a medical lawsuit as a young woman was intimating, but Brett always made me feel super comfortable, and made the process go smoother than I could have asked for. He continued to go above and beyond throughout the whole case, showing both transparency and professionalism until the end. I HIGHLY recommend Brett as an attorney to anyone who is seeking legal representation. Thank you so much, Brett!!

Couldn't be more pleased with the representation we received from Kerry Schuman in a recent real estate transaction. At the onset of our engagement Kerry accurately predicted where pitfalls may arise and crafted the contract accordingly. When those problems actually happened, our rights were protected without question. He is extremely knowledgeable and responsive and we would recommend him highly

I was debating on waiting to write this review until I was completely done working with them, but I had to share my thoughts in hopes that they reach someone else who is trying to make a decision when choosing a law firm. Before contacting Friedman Schuman, I had spoken to at least 5 other firms. The initial "intake" from the firms consisted of them collecting a breakdown of what I was looking for in terms of legal assistance. Not actually speaking with an attorney, only with their office staff (which I understand that some attorneys may not always have the time). That was not the case with Brett. I received my first phone call from Friedman Schuman on the same day of my inquiry. The phone call wasn't from someone in their office, it was from Brett himself. He personally took the time to listen to all the information I could give him, explain my reasoning for wanting legal help, and understanding what I was going through. I have already asked so many questions and have never once felt like a burden based on his responses. He truly took the time to explain things to me, provide me with next steps and estimated time frames, and was always sure to make me feel like my comments, questions, and concerns were truly important. Friedman Schuman will forever be my first suggestion for anyone who may ever ask me if I know of an attorney... I will forever be grateful for all the hard work that they have put in and for taking the time to listen and explain things to me. Thank you again Brett and Derek for being so awesome!

Melissa Paris Miller helped me navigate the most challenging health crisis of my life, she was understanding, knowledgeable and helpful throughout the very long process. My case was not straightforward, we had to try and collect a settlement in an area of malpractice that can be a major challenge. Melissa did so much research and recruited help where needed to ensure we made my case as strong as possible and did everything she could to ensure my case settled in my favor.

-

Bob and his team did more than I could ever imagine for me and my family. I went through the roughest time in my life and they were there every step of the way. They helped with anything and everything they could. They treat you like more than just a client. They will always be my first call and first recommendation. Can't say thank you enough.

-

I just recently completed a financial transaction with Friedman Schuman and I couldn't be more pleased with how the matter was handled. The lawyers were very responsive and the fees were very reasonable. I would recommend Friedman Schuman to anyone who needs legal services.

-

I have been using this law firm for more than 30 years throughout my career. They always go above and beyond. Truly they care about the work they perform for their clients. On top of the depth of knowledge they bring to each complex situation. I have always had VERY positive results from their work.

-

For the past 30+ years, our businesses have engaged Peter Friedman, Esq. to handle a wide variety of legal matters, most notably real estate commercial development, leasing, financing and purchase/sale transactions. We have seen the Firm grow and evolve into a premier law practice serving the Philadelphia community and surrounding Counties. I can unqualifiedly recommend the Firm/Peter Friedman as it/he has provided us with sound counsel, professional legal advice, strong and helpful business suggestions, timely and quality documentation at fair and reasonable rates.

When I say exceptional, I mean exceptional! I initially contacted Derek Layser, Esq. when I was involved in a motor vehicle accident as he is, in my opinion, one of the top lawyers in the area. He set me up with Robert Nemeroff, Esq. to handle the case and I trusted from the get-go that I would be in very capable hands. Attorney Nemeroff is extremely knowledgeable, patient, and kind. He was available to answer any questions I had throughout the (almost) three (3) year period which this case lasted and worked diligently to settle the case with my best interests in mind. He was never in a hurry to rush me off the phone or dismiss my concerns. He treated me with respect and addressed all of my questions with clear answers. He is top-notch! I would be remiss if I did not mention the hard work and dedication of Gail Sciolla, Paralegal. Gail was always available to discuss my claim and took extra care in making sure all of the details were accurate. When I called with updates, she took the time to discuss the doctor's findings and pass along my questions to Attorney Nemeroff. Gail is extremely friendly and truly cares for the clients. She is a gem in the Friedman Schuman family. Thank you to Attorneys Layser & Nemeroff, and Ms. Sciolla for truly taking care of me and working hard to resolve this matter. Your team is amazing and I will always highly recommend your services.

Friedman & Schuman is the best! I was involved in a complicated real estate zoning issue with the township. Peter Friedman did a remarkable job in all aspects of my case. Notable was Peter’s professionalism, knowledge, preparation, and alacrity. Peter’s genius is the right formula to win any case! And yes, we WON! Thank you, Peter!

In January 2020 I was involved in a very bad accident: I was hit by a drunk driver. I am beyond blessed to say that I am friends with Attorney Layser and very thankful for that. He has shown me firsthand what an incredible attorney he is ( I already knew he's an amazing human ). The knowledge and compassion and concern shown during my case was excellent and he took the time to make sure I understood every aspect of what was going on, and never faltered in answering any and every question I had along the way. Attorney Layser's Paralegal Gail Sciolla was a complete godsend to me during this time and all the hard work she has done for me and on my behalf was amazing. They truly care about the clients they represent and go above and beyond for them every day. I wish I could give them more than 5 stars they definitely deserve it. You will be treated with respect, compassion and professionalism every step of the way with the incredible people at Friedman Schuman.

Gail Sciolla has been incredible to work with. She is very passionate, driven, helpful, and has always exhibited a high level of professionalism when working with my husband and our family. In addition, Gail is unlike anyone we have ever met. Her work ethic is fierce and one that is highly respected. She is a fighter and goes above and beyond to help others rightfully win. Thank you Gail for all you have done and all you continue to do! You are a rare gem.

We had the pleasure of working with Brett J. Kaminsky, Esq and Gail Sciolla from Friedman & Schuman, who managed to turn a pretty unfortunate situation around. Their level of care for their clients, professionalism, and expertise are unmatched. They were always quick to answer questions and provide thoughtful advice and showed us they truly had our back. We couldn't be happier with the resolution we came to, with their guidance. If you're looking for a law firm that provides truly exceptional service, look no further than Friedman & Schuman!

"There will be only one person that I will call in the need of an attorney and his name is Robert Nemeroff. I thank him so much for all his work and help that he had provided for me.

My husband had emergency surgery which resulted in paralysis. He was hospitalized for a long period of time, and subsequently developed wounds over parts of his body due to negligence. I was recommended to contact Derek Layser, an attorney, who later introduced me to Melissa Paris Miller another attorney in the firm. This was an extremely positive move! They were competent, thorough, persistent and personable! They were always there for me to answer questions, explain their progress and satisfy my anxiety in this malpractice case. I was in constant contact with Judy Taimanglo, the paralegal who kept all information current from me on file. I would highly recommend this law team! They are truly competent and extremely easy to deal with! They are always available to answer any questions that you may have. They are a definite 5 star- hard-working, dependable and honest team!

"We had the pleasure of using Robert Nemoroff for a personal injury case. His professionalism and knowledge and time he spent with us during the entire process of our case was extraordinary. Robert Nemeroff also has a great friendly demeanor and helped us with making decisions and we would definitely refer him to others."

"Bob Nemeroff is a lawyer that has all the qualities you want in a lawyer. He is professional, knowledgeable, understanding, caring, and very accessible to his clients.

Excellent advice, expertise and service.

"Mr. Nemeroff has represented me on two occasions. In both cases my best interests were always at the forefront and I was always completely confident and comfortable during the entire process. I must also mention the same tidings, as mentioned above for Mrs. Sciola. She and Mr. Nemeroff are the BEST TEAM ever, and I would place my interests in their experienced and professional "hands" again and again. I have been "singing" their praises and recommending their services for the last decade and will continue to do so."

"David was the most professional, caring attorney that I interviewed. I would highly recommend him for your estate planning or transactional issues."
