Freedman’s specialties include employment, labor law, employment litigation, crisis management, employment training and professional development and more with a focus on hospitality, food and agribusiness industries.
Freedman said his father was a lawyer, “so I always thought I would try law school, although I feared I wouldn’t last more than a semester.” But he immediately felt at home. Everyone was nice, “and I found it oddly romantic to study for hours in the library. The more I learned, the more passionate I became about learning new aspects of the law, which remains the case today.”
Because litigation “isn’t fun for any of the participants,” Freedman said he makes it a priority to explain the process. “If clients understand that, then they are more likely to conclude that the legal process has been fair,” even if the result isn’t what they hoped.
The Honorable Sylvia Rambo, U.S. District Judge for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, mentored Freedman, who clerked for her. “Of course, I learned a tremendous amount from her about how to practice law the right way. But probably more importantly, Judge Rambo treated all of her clerks and court staff like family; she still does! I learned from her the importance of taking care of those who support you.”
