STEPHEN R FRIEDER
Born, raised, and educated in Southern California, Stephen has spent his career practicing law throughout the southland; from Newport Beach, to Los Angeles, to San Diego and the Inland Empire. After working for a large firm defending against injury, employment, and real estate claims, Stephen transitioned to a small firm representing public entities. While there, he handled a vast array of issues, including general litigation, employment arbitrations, contract negotiations, and advising public bodies on pending legal issues. In recent years, Stephen has concentrated on personal injury and employment claims and developed a passion for representing plaintiffs.
Stephen established Frieder Law Firm to practice law the right way - by focusing on clients and delivering results. Law firms typically force clients to deal with multiple assistants and attorneys, then fail to return your calls and emails. That will never happen with Frieder Law Firm. You will deal directly with Stephen and he will always respond to you promptly. Despite his calm demeanor, Stephen is a fierce litigator who fights hard for his clients and never compromises their goals.
Stephen graduated from Chapman Law School and has been a member of the State Bar of California since 2010.
