A former client who hired us to defend him in connection with a health care fraud matter had this to say about our firm:

I would like to endorse Dan Fridman and Adam Fels from the Fridman, Fels, and Soto law firm.  I was embroiled in a complex legal matter involving Health Care Fraud, and violations of the Anti-Kickback Statutes. I was the CEO of the Company being investigated and the matter went on for 8 years.  

From the very beginning of our relationship,  I was treated with compassion and professionalism, and a steadfast commitment to my case.  This team not only possessed a depth of legal knowledge but also demonstrated a genuine desire to understand every nuance of my situation.

Throughout this painful and arduous process, they meticulously navigated every twist and turn with precision and tenacity. They dug deep into mountains of data and prevailed in showing the government investigators, and the prosecutor my passive role in the Fraud. They were strong advocates on my behalf.

After 40 years in Health Care. I can say with confidence that this is the team you need when trouble comes knocking.
