Attorney Profile

As a partner at Freidin Brown, P.A., Philip Freidin is committed to representing clients in Miami and South Florida as well as across the country. He focuses his practice on personal injury cases that include matters such as medical malpractice, wrongful death and auto accidents. He also handles cases involving whistleblowing and qui tam.

With more than 45 years of experience, Mr. Freidin has a history of bringing personal injury cases to trial. Over the span of his career, he has obtained several million-dollar settlements and verdicts. Mr. Freidin's achievements include a landmark case that established a Florida product liability doctrine.

For his successes, Mr. Freidin has earned the highest rating possible of AV Preeminent* from Martindale-Hubbell; he has been named in The Best Lawyers in America**; and the Daily Business Review has named him in its Most Effective Lawyers list. The Florida Bar's Board of Legal Specialization and Education has certified him as a civil trial attorney, and the National Board of Legal Specialty Certification has certified him as a trial advocate.

He also serves on the board of directors for the Mothers Against Drunk Driving Florida, South Affiliate chapter.
