Product Liability Litigation - Plaintiffs

I hired Baum Hedlund in December of 2010. At that time, I was told that Baum Hedlund was one of the best product liability law firms in the United States. I was correctly informed. In addition to their unbelievable dedication to this case, they have compassion and are quality human beings. This was an extraordinarily difficult and painful process and they made my family and I feel like it was their personal journey as well. I cannot imagine another firm intellectually and personally to be granted this award.

Product Liability Litigation - Plaintiffs

I’ve worked on several large MDLs and Class Action suits with Michael Baum and his partners at Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman, including cases against Monsanto and the Pharmaceutical cartel. He is an idealist who fearlessly takes on hopeless causes, never gives up and accomplishes astonishing victories. He is a relentless litigator who has all the charisma and skills of a great trial lawyer. A tireless workhorse, Michael is always first to volunteer for the complex and difficult tasks that keep litigation moving. He is a natural leader who is content to be part of the pack. In a profession of sharp elbows and scathing tongues, I’ve never heard another lawyer say an unkind word about Michael Baum. He is univocally beloved as a partner who is reliably judicious, generous, humble and fair.

Anytime I had a question they responded very quickly. If ever i need a lawyer ever again, they will be the first I would ever go to. Their office was kind and patient with me at all times. I myself do not know the ins and outs of the law and how it works so speaking with them was outstanding. I would refer them to anyone at any time for their services.

Product Liability Litigation - Plaintiffs

I have worked closely with Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goodman for a number of years and their knowledge, work ethic, and commitment to their clients is second-to-none. The attorneys I have worked with from the firm, Michael Baum, R. Brent Wisner, and Pedram Esfandiary, are all superb attorneys who embody the highest ideals of the profession. Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goodman is often on the cutting of novel and creative legal arguments that push the envelope and create good precedent for clients and future litigants. In my experience, these attorneys consistently generate the highest quality briefing and work product and are exceedingly well-prepared. Mr. Wisner in particular is a notable trial attorney whose acerbic whit and command of complicated precedent or scientific fact leaves an indelible impression. Most importantly, the attorneys at Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goodman are committed first and foremost to their clients, and will stop at nothing to ensure the best outcome.
