Firm Overview

As a boutique firm with only a handful of lawyers, 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 also limit our practice to cases involving medical malpractice, serious personal injuries, and whistleblower claims, allowing us to maximize results by providing our clients with experienced and focused legal representation.

Firm founder Philip Freidin has been practicing law for 50 years and has devoted his life to representing clients who have been seriously injured by the wrongful acts of others. Phil has represented plaintiffs in some of the most significant personal injury and medical malpractice cases in Florida’s history and has earned his status as a pillar in the South Florida legal community. As one federal judge recently wrote, “he is unquestionably among the upper echelons of lawyers in our district.”

The Freidin Brown, P.A. legal team consists of a small group of selectively chosen Miami medical malpractice lawyers, 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. Combined with the younger attorneys on the firm’s roster, our team has built an impressive reputation for representing clients in some of the most serious medical malpractice, complex personal injury, and whistleblower cases. The firm is also proud of the amazing staff supporting our attorneys, including three staff members who have been with the firm for over 20 years.


We take cases throughout the state of Florida to help victims of medical malpractice, birth injuries, or other personal injuries in order to get them the best care and maximum compensation to deal with the cost, pain, and disruption to their lives this negligence has caused. Call us anytime at 866-716-7292 for a free case consultation. Phones are answered 24/7, and we’ll arrange a meeting at a time and place of your convenience. 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. You won’t owe us a dime unless we recover for you. We have lawyers and staff who speak fluent Spanish and French and welcome all native Spanish and French speakers to our office. 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, P.A. family.
