Overview

Content is provided by the firm.

Freidin Brown, P.A. was founded in 1976 by Philip Freidin, who has devoted his entire life to representing clients who have been seriously injured by the wrongful acts of others. The firm currently consists of a small group of selectively chosen attorneys, as well as attorney Joel H. Brown, a childhood friend of Phil’s who joined the firm when he retired from serving as the Chief Judge of the Miami-Dade court system.

With over a century of combined experience, the lawyers at Freidin Brown, P.A. have handled some of the most significant medical malpractice and serious personal injury cases throughout Florida. Our decades-long specialty focus means we have the knowledge, skills, and experience to understand even the most complex cases of medical negligence, from misdiagnosis, birth injury, and medication errors to hospital errors in the ER, OR, lab and more. We pride ourselves on the big-firm resources we devote to our cases, while still being able to give our clients the personalized care and attention they deserve. We use cutting-edge technology in the courtroom and retain medical experts from some of the best universities and teaching institutions in the world to give our clients every advantage. We handle all injury cases on a contingency fee basis; meaning we advance all the costs of litigation and only get paid out of a portion of the recovery.

As advocates for the seriously injured, our number one goal is to help you get the care and compensation you need and deserve. When we take your case, you become part of the Freidin Brown family.

Medical Malpractice Law - Plaintiffs
The complex nature of the evidence was the reason why my case was very difficult and very complicated to prove. Freiden Brown’s firm has highly qualified experts for medical malpractice and negligence and high level of expertise. They did an excellent job.
