Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs

Everyone at Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman was knowledgeable and good at explaining how the process would be. Most important was how caring and understanding everyone was. I would recommend this group and use them if I ever had something like this happen again.

Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs

I was contacted by the firm via a firm brochure highlighting their expertise in their field of personal injury litigation. My daughter was killed in a semi-truck accident. After reading their information and comparing them to others who sent brochures, I chose Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Golman for representation. I was very satisfied with the personal contact and the consistency of expert information. The individual response to all my concerns and the expediency of getting our needs met were beyond my expectations. The cost of their services were competitive with other firms as well.

Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs

Diane Marger Moore and Ronald Goldman are the two attorneys at Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman I've had the pleasure to work with recently. As an expert witness, I have the opportunity to work with scores of lawyers throughout California on Personal Injury cases. I hold Diane and Ron in the highest of esteem. They exemplify the best of what legal counsel represents. They are so kind to work with, incredibly knowledgeable, have vast experience, are so quick with an understanding of a situation, and provide cost-effective strategies that ensure the client's needs are met. I am honored to work with them as an expert witness and I know my analysis of a situation is fully appreciated (and challenged appropriately). They surround themselves with the best, to ensure their clients receive the best care. It's almost as if they are caring individuals, who just happen to also be lawyers!

Product Liability Litigation - Plaintiffs

The lawyers of Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman are brilliant, very compassionate, and strong advocates for their clients. Folks like Michael Baum, Brent Wisner, and Cindy Hall are marvelous human beings. They really know how to drill down in discovery, crossing all the T's and dotting all the I's. They do a wonderful job of lawyering from motions to trials. I would recommend them to friends and family without reservation.

Product Liability Litigation - Plaintiffs

I hired Baum Hedlund as I had heard they were the best product liability law firm in the country. Baum Hedlund filed a lawsuit against GSK and it was never expected to even be heard by the courts. Their ability to uncover hidden documents that showed the fraudulent drug trials and deception was astonishing. We ended up going to trial and we won. The jury saw the original, hidden documents and understood the drug company's deceit and lack of transparency. GSK hired so many lawyers and tried to divert the jury but these lawyers could not compete with Baum Hedlund. The verdict was eventually overturned on pre-emption but no one ever disputed the lower court's accuracy. Baum Hedlund fought to the end including appealing it to the Supreme Court. Just as importantly to me, these lawyers became my dear friends. They treated this case as if my husband was their relative. This was an extraordinarily emotional time for my family. We felt their empathy, understanding and true passion for this case and our well being. I could not have imagined going through this experience for close to 10 years with any other firm. They are simply the best!

Mike Miller The Miller Firm LLC

Product Liability Litigation - Plaintiffs

Michael Baum, Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman’s senior partner, is both an exemplary attorney and human being. He has flawless integrity, compassion and relentless commitment to the highest ideals. Those qualities have become the aspirational virtues for all the attorneys in the firm. During my many interactions with Baum Hedlund lawyers, including multiple visits to their offices, this firm strikes me as an idyllic and joyful place to work. I have watched Michael and his partners during three month long trials and I have partnered with them in other lawsuits. They are all diligent, responsible and gifted attorneys. I want to say a word about one young partner, Brent Wisner. I have watched many of America’s greatest trial lawyers in action, but none better than Brent. Both judges and juries love him for his integrity, his lightening wit, easy humor, buoyant wit and infectious magnetism. His grasp of both science and law is encyclopedic. His greatest gift is his capacity to distill complexities into a simple and compelling cascade of moral outrage. His mesmerizing cross examinations begin as piercing and end in annihilation. Brent is a wrecking ball with charm. It’s no accident that all of the great plaintiff’s firms that are part of the Monsanto Multi-district litigation chose Baum Hedlund to try the first three cases.

Product Liability Litigation - Plaintiffs

As one of the court reporters in the Monsanto Trials re RoundUp caused cancer, I had the privilege and pleasure of working with Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman. It was a career highlight for me to work with a trial team of this caliber. They are brilliant, passionate, and dedicated to justice for those injured by big corporations. They successfully presented difficult technical scientific evidence in toxicology and epidemiology in a method juries would understand. They are committed, tireless, true warriors for justice, and they win.

Aviation Law

I do feel 100% that if I had to choose a firm again today it would definitely be Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman again! Although my specific case is closed, they (and particularly Timothy Loranger who was the lead attorney on my case) continues to support me and is there anytime for any questions, concerns or advice I may need. He (and Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman) were and still are awesome and I would recommend them to anyone!

Aviation Law

Our team at Baum Hedlund was supportive of us personally, respecting our wishes and values. That being said, they did lay out for us all of our options and our chances of success in each scenario. I felt that we directed our case, but they covered every possible contingency and were well prepared. Filings were timely. Communication with us was excellent, based on our preferences. They got us a better outcome than anyone expected, and we are forever grateful. Since our case ended, we have called on them several times regarding publicity, and they are always available. Ron flew out to our home and sat with us through an interview for Consumer Report, making sure we told our story well without violating any agreements we had made. It feels good to know someone is on your side and watching your back. It's rare in the legal field, unfortunately. I recommend them to anyone.
