An attorney on the side of ‘the riders’

Cheryl Squadrito, Courier-Post Attorney Jerry Friedman is big on empathy. It was his compassion for fellow motorcyclists that led him to a career representing other riders. A 1975 graduate of Rutgers University, Friedman makes sure "bikers" get what they're entitled to, especially after an accident. "Eighty-six percent of all accidents involving motorcycles are the other guy's fault," Friedman says. That's a lot of people to represent. Friedman says motocycle law is different than automobile law, especially in New Jersey. Insurance coverage varies as well, he says. Friedman built his practice to fight for motorcycle riders' rights. "I distribute newsletters that tell riders about changes in the law," he says. Thanks to his Web site, "I get calls from across the country." His Internet address and toll-free number are easy... read more

Motorcyclist/lawyer says a few “bikers” have created a bias

Cynthia Collier, Gloucester County Times Harley-Davidson riders and other motorcyclists are customarily split into two distinct groups - motorcycle enthusiasts and bikers. The two factions mix at rallies and other events, but outside of a love of motorized "hogs," they range from police to professionals to punks. "Motorcyclists are a tight knit group, as are people who polka dance," said Williamstown attorney Jerry Friedman. "The rallies and the events are the most peaceful things I've ever seen. It's a Woodstock thing," Friedman said. "There's more tension and aggression at an Eagles game." Friedman is a member of several motorcycle clubs as well as a lawyer who specialized in motorcycle-related cases. Friedman rides for fun, but it's also the heart of his law practice. His business cards show the classic... read more

A hog for attention? Or just a biker with his own idea of Justice?

Martin DeAngelis, The Press of Atlantic City We've gotten used to attorneys who advertise. We've also gotten used to attorneys who specialize. But the way Jerry Friedman advertises is still a surprise - almost as big a surprise as his legal specialty itself. Friedman has a billboard on the Black Horse Pike in Folsom, and the billboards has a picture, a toll-free number and a motto all demonstrating that this lawyer specialized in the relationship between the wheels of justice and the wheels of a motorcycle. His picture shows the classic female figure of Justice, blindfolded and holding her usual scales - but standing by a big cycle, which is not so usual.   Still, even that might be a little less legally loopy than the free telephone number... read more

Lawyer rides on the side of bikers

Chuck Darrow, Courier-Post The billboard, which sits on Route 322 east in Mays Landing, is pretty tough to miss. First, there's the unusual, prominently sized phone number emblazoned upon it: 1-800-LAW-4-HOGS. Then there's the humorous illustration of Lady Justice astride a motorcycle.   But the striking sign is effective in making its point: If you ride a motorcycle ("Hog" is biker lingo for Harley-Davidson cycles) and need a lawyer, Williamstown-based Jerry Friedman is your guy. Friedman, 44, specialized in motorcycle law. A 1975 graduate of Rutgers Law School, Camden, he has been a motorcyclist since he was 18 (he currently rides a 1987 Harley heritage Softail Custom). His field of specialty arose from a call he received a number of years ago from ABATE Inc., a national lobbying group... read more
