CLEVELAND (WJW) – Jeffrey Friedman died at the age of 74 on Sunday, May 29. He was a John Carroll and Case Western Law school graduate. In addition to being a partner with Friedman, Domiano & Smith, he served as councilman and vice mayor of University Heights for several decades.

He leaves behind a wife and daughter. In his obituary, he is remembered for helping others. “Jeff tirelessly worked as a devoted advocate for the seriously injured and disadvantaged.” Jeff also was an Assistant Attorney General, handicap law advocate and accident rights advocate. Friedman said being in a wheelchair from injuries in a car accident in the 60s gave him a unique perspective on what people go through when they’re injured.

Funeral services will be held Thursday, June 2, at 11:00 AM at JFX – Jewish Family Experience at 2200 S. Green Rd. in University Heights. Masks are required. Following the service, he will be buried at Mt. Olive Cemetery in Solon.
