O. Allan Fridman has been practicing law since 2001. His practice is unique in that he does not view himself as a litigation attorney or transactional attorney. Rather, he views each area of law as a tool to pursue the best results for his clients. By practicing in both areas of law, he is able to take a 360-degree view of law. This enables the firm to catch potential drawbacks that are readily identifiable.
By practicing in litigation and transactional law and taking a holistic approach in dealing with our clients, he doesn’t put clients in box — rather, as we are all individuals, so too are the legal services we may require.
Whether it is bankruptcy or litigation or transactional, each client brings challenges and does not fit in any one box. Often times, bankruptcy clients end up not filing bankruptcy because we can achieve a better result through litigation or through an out-of-court resolution with the lender, or through a real estate sale. On the other end of the spectrum, a litigation client with multiple issues and lawsuit may fare better in a bankruptcy.
Since 2001, Allan has practiced in states and federal court, and he is a member of the trial bar of the Northern District of Illinois and admitted in the Northern District of Indiana.
