The partners of Koehler & Isaacs LLP  announced Monday a new affiliation with the Rockland County based Law Offices of David Fried.

David Fried said, “My practice is dedicated to serving the members of our community and their families. I have seen first-hand that the entire legal team at Koehler & Isaacs shares that dedication at the core of their firm’s mission. Together, we will deliver the best legal representation possible on behalf of our clients.”

David Fried maintains a general practice in Chestnut Ridge, New York with services that include governmental advocacy and administrative representation, criminal defense, real estate, contracts and business law, immigration, wills and estates, and civil litigation among other practice areas.

He is currently mulling a run for County Court justice, as well. Clarkstown Judge Rolf Thorsen is running for the position. Previously, Judge Howard Gerber was considered a front-runner for the County Court position, but since being publicly rebuked by the chief of police in Clarkstown over alleged interference in the investigation into Peggy Nadell’s murder, he star has fallen.

Koehler & Isaacs is a full service law firm with twenty-four attorneys specializing in a wide range of practice areas including Labor and Employment, Criminal & Disciplinary, Personal Injury, Real Estate, and Matrimonial. The firm represents many high-profile clients including The Correction Officers’ Benevolent Association of Rockland County, The Westchester County Correction Officers Benevolent Association, The Dutchess County Sheriff’s Employees Association, The Ulster County Sherriff Employees Association, The Nassau County Correction Officers’ Benevolent Association and the New York City Correction Officers’ Benevolent Association.

Partner Steve Isaacs said, “We are thrilled to begin this affiliation with the Law Offices of David Fried. I’ve known and worked with David for over a decade. His legal knowledge and dedication to the community makes him a perfect addition to our firm. He will help extend our efforts to represent clients across Rockland County and the Hudson Valley.”

A litigator for over twenty-five years, Steve Isaacs serves as general counsel to a number of private and public sector labor unions both in Rockland County and the Hudson Valley region.

A graduate of Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, Fried is a former Rockland County Legislator, Criminal Court Judge, and the 2013 Democratic Party’s nominee for County Executive of Rockland County, a candidacy that was endorsed by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and many elected local officials in Rockland County.

He formerly served as a presidential aide to William Jefferson Clinton and district representative to Congresswoman Nita Lowey, ranking member of the House Appropriations Committee.
