An excellent attorney highly skilled in employment law
We became Mr. Friauf’s second client once he began his firm in Knoxville. Though we lived out of state, we needed a Tennessee attorney experienced in employment laws pertinent to the state, in order to contest an FMLA retaliation and ADA violation (with wrongful termination) case. Mr. Friauf rapidly became a beacon of hope to us during a very difficult time in our lives. He was very aggressive from the earliest days of our relationship with him, pressed the defendant hard, and moved the case very rapidly down the continuum of the legal process. The defendant, a large corporate entity, hired a very experienced attorney from a long-established and very prestigious law firm. However, it quickly became evident that what our young attorney may have lacked in terms of years of practice was more than made up for in impeccable research, total commitment to assuring our best interests, and sheer tenacity. Our case settled out of court and we were pleased with the outcome as we were able to recoup the significant losses we had accrued due to the defendant’s callous actions, and also able to get a little ahead. Words cannot possibly express what Mr. Friauf has meant to us, and there are certainly not enough words to convey the excellence of service we received from him. He comes with our highest recommendation. We would certainly encourage any potential plaintiff who needs legal assistance with an employment issue to hire him – without a second thought.
