Reasonable / Professional / Personable … Very nice man to speak to … He helped me feel safe and took away my fear in my legal situation. If or when needed he is ready to jump in and take over. Thank you, Carol

My experience with Friedman and Ranzenhofer was very professional. They handled my case with efficiency and friendliness.
Mr. Alba and Mr. Razenhofer treated me with respect and kindness. This was first experience dealing with the court, and Mr. Alba especially, made the whole ordeal much smoother than I anticipated.
I recommend this firm very highly.

My wages were being garnished from a collection agency. They claimed they won a judgement from 5 years ago that I didn’t respond to. I wasted my money with 1 lawyer and I was told by another lawyer that I didn’t have a case. A legal service referred me to Sam.

Sam clearly explained the legalities and was honest about my options. He asked questions that helped him to better understand my situation. His price was very fair considering all the work he has done.

He is very responsive to my inquiries and has a very fast turnaround. I would highly recommend him!

Sam Alba is the best lawyer I have ever worked with. He is competent, experienced, respectful and understanding. He listens to what you want and does what he can to accomplish that. He is HONEST. He will tell you, good or bad, what he is able to accomplish. He customizes your circumstances and works out the best possible outcome within the parameters of the law. He’s not profit-focused and doesn’t make promises he can’t keep. Even when we disagreed, he was assertive and respectful. He has stellar negotiating skills, based on what he was able to do for me and still be fair to the other party. He is the only lawyer I will work with from this point forth.

I feel I was treated great. Mr. Ranzenhofer responded quickly with call backs and any questions, there were never any doubts of where my case was and he was always reassuring that being patient was the answer. And it was. I want to thank him and his legal team especially with the office personnel always friendly and also quick responses when messages were left. Highly recommended. Thanks for everything

Hello Bob! I just want to express my appreciation for the professional and empathetic service that Jessica has given to me. She is a true professional while caring and keeping me updated every step of the way. This situation has been a nightmare to me both emotionally and financially. I never dreamed this would all happen. These two tenants sided against me when all I have done is be a truly amazing landlord, meeting every need that concerned them, even when they decided to not pay me anymore. It was my duty as a landlord to make sure that utilities were paid and furnace serviced during temps of 0 degrees. Turns out they worked together to sabotage furnace, pull the plug and leave all windows open so that I would pay RG&E, according to owner of Total Comfort and Cooling. You have an amazing team. I also have dealt with Sue who is a true professional and handled my calls. Again, please give Jessica an amazing KUDOS. She is your number one point person as far as I can tell. She reflects your office as a role model in community. Also, I cant thank Pete enough for his part in evicting Ms. Hudson. To be honest with you, she cried like a baby, but gave no remorse for her own actions. I was so relieved when judge ruled to evict. I just need them all out so that I can regain my sanity. Thank you for your communication and service to my needs. I so appreciate you also. Respectfully, Mickie

We were treated in a respectful, professional and helpful manner while preparing our wills, healthcare proxies and power of attorney. Mr. Friedman took as much time as we needed to answer all of our questions and concerns. His staff was friendly and efficient. We highly recommend him.

5 Dennis via

I was in a bad pinch. Michael took the time last minute for me. I was in court once and done! He reduced my offense which is not typically done from what I understand. His knowledge, experience and professionalism was worth the money! I would recommend him and seek his help again if needed.

5 R W via

Very helpful. He was willing to chat with me about my case. 👍

Michael Ranzenhofer was very professional in dealing with my case. He always responded to calls in a timely manner. He was very thorough in handling my case. I would definitely use him again if I needed legal representation, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

5 Jim via

Very pleased with professionalism, knowledge and timeliness of the documentation process. The insight on Will, POA and Trust was invaluable as well. Highly recommended.

If you need a guy – consider Bob & Sam… Nobody wants to have to hire a lawyer. I know I didn’t. The first time I bought a house, I found out that I needed a lawyer for the paperwork. I stumbled through a google search for random lawyers in the area and just grabbed the first one that showed up close to me. That was Friedman Ranzenhofer (of Williamsville / Akron / Buffalo ). That was 5 years ago. In those five years, my “happy” need for a lawyer (buying a house) was then replaced by other needs… we had an issue with estate papers for a deceased family member. Then I was sued for witholding payment from a fly-by-night contractor who did shoddy work that failed inspection and caused damage. Lastly, we had a property / real-estate issue that’s up in the air. I never found another lawyer in those 5 years. The same straightforward, honest, guys who did the paperwork on my home have now represented me, my mom, and my wife. Bob Friedman is an extremely professional, but none-the-less down to earth lawyer (and human being). He’s smart, he runs his firm with integrity, and he genuinely cares about outcomes — he’ll ask you, “what would be an ideal resolution for you?” – because he knows that it’s not about the details (for us, the clients) as much as it is about how these situations affect our lives. Sam Alba has been in charge of the two ugliest things in my life, and he’s handled himself with composure and intelligence. He’s pushed hard when he’s needed to, and it’s easy to tell that he’s done his homework on every matter. To date, the outcomes have been favorable and live-able. I’m very — very — pleased to be represented by these folks. When the topic of lawyers comes up in conversation, I’m actually quite happy to be able to say “I’ve got a guy”.

Mr. Robert Friedman did everything I asked for. He made difficult documents; like a Will easy. Made me feel comfortable and went out of his way due to my disability. Answered all my questions in laymen terms.
When all was done, I felt great relief and got more than I paid for

I was hit head on in a car accident and had got injured. I contacted Mike Ranzenhofer and he got started the process of getting money for me for my pain and suffering and future medical bills. Every time I called or came to his office he always took his time to help me. And we eventually won the case. He is an amazing lawyer and person himself and I would fully recommend him to anyone.

5 Gail via

I have never dealt with an attorney or law firm as efficient and conscientious as Mr. Friedman and his employees. I came to him with my father’s estate, sale of a home and other legal matters. I spoke DIRECTLY with him many times. I did NOT have to “leave messages” constantly or get shuffled around to other people while waiting for a return phone call. HE addressed legal matters directly with me. I NEVER had to wait endlessly for a return email from him either. He answered them on the same day or within 24 hours.

I believe his knowledge and expertise is unsurpassed in the legal field, but also in handling his clients. He is extremely considerate of YOU and YOUR situation, questions and concerns. Also, his fees are very reasonable compared to other attorneys.

The individuals on his staff are top-notch and very competent as well. They were all very courteous, understanding and knowledgeable. They went out of their way for me as well.

I could not be more satisfied with the treatment and attention to my affairs and legal issues. If you are looking for the PERFECT attorney, Mr.Friedman is the one to choose. You won’t be disappointed by him or his staff. They are all amazing individuals to work with. It was truly my pleasure to have met him and to have him handle my legal affairs. He is truly one-in-a-million and I most highly recommend him!

Robert Friedman has been my legal counsel for nearly 25 years representing my property management company. You will find the Western New York market literally inundated with lots of attorneys to choose from. You may ask, what makes Robert Friedman the right choice for me?
Simply put, he sets the bar in conduct, dedication to his clients and work. His legal expertise in a word, is expert.
Finally, he is an attorney you can trust, who is honest and will work for YOU!

I used Mike as my attorney after I broke my hip. He was wonderful! Throughout my experience he explained all of the legal steps to me thoroughly and answered all questions that I had. He would also check in with me from time to time and was always very friendly and approachable. Mike was able to negotiate a settlement that I was quite happy with. Would absolutely recommend this lawyer to anyone. Thanks Mike!

I used Mr. Friedman’s services when suing a seller of real estate who had concealed a great many flaws in the property at issue. His fees were reasonable and his services helped convince the seller to settle out of court, saving me further expense.

I hired Mr. Ranzenhofer for my divorce knowing it was going to be a very hostile situation. He was well prepared for all of the accusations that came at me and in the end gained a favorable settlement.

My husband and I have been clients of Mr. Friedman’s for several years. He has been very helpful in putting together and updating our wills, helping us through the purchase of 2 homes, and getting a small business off the ground. Mr. Friedman is a good listener and really cares about his clients. He is also very intelligent and business-savvy.

5 Bruce via

Mr Ranzenhofer did an excellent job of preparing my case took the time to look over all the details and and make the necessary changes needed for me to win my case. He made himself always available to me when I had questions. His legal assistant also was very good and always replied to me quickly when I had questions. I would highly recommend Mr Ranzenhofer to handle your case.

Michael did an excellent job to plea bargain a deal on my behalf. He has in depth knowledge of DUI law and years of local experience. I completely trust Michael.

5 Connie via

Mr. Ranzenhofer was very kind, considerate, experienced and knowledgeable. He helped me gain financial success after experiencing a car accident while visiting the States. Even if we weren’t successful, he still sent me to the right professionals and took the right steps in the right direction.
