Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs

I contacted Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman firm at the last minute, after I had already been terminated for speaking up about the blatant fraud occurring in my workplace. I was immediately contacted by attorney Mark Schlein. He was able to prepare a document to file in court within 3 or 4 days. Unfortunately I didn’t realize how important it is to contact an attorney BEFORE you “speak up” in a situation where Medicare fraud is occurring in the workplace. Mark was always responsive, professional and compassionate. He walked with me every step of the way and was proactive in my receiving a significant settlement.

My experience with Baum Hedlund has been outstanding. One of the best firms that I have had the occasion to work with in my 52 years of law practice. The attorneys and staff are all top notch and I would recommend them to anyone without any qualms about the quality of their legal work.

Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman helped me with the extensive paperwork. Attorney Frances Phares was "assigned" to me, and she really took the time to get to know my specific case and was a great help and advocate. She kept me updated as to the progress of the case and settlement, and she absolutely made all the difference in the world in helping me to feel like they really cared about me. I truly believe Fran and the firm did their very best in trying to get me the largest settlement possible. I'm so glad I made the decision to work with Baum, Hedlund, Aristei and Goldman. I give them a high recommendation.

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. You can’t get a more convincing endorsement than that.

Baum Hedlund attorneys are fearless warriors fighting tirelessly for truth and justice. In the June 2018 trial of Dwayne Johnson vs Monsanto, a San Francisco jury unanimously awarded 289 million dollars to the plaintiff. As a court reporter in this trial, I experienced a career highlight working with this amazing team of peak litigators. They are absolutely brilliant in the courtroom, passionate, dedicated, committed, and educated like none I have ever seen. Theirs is a long history of victories representing those who have been injured by multinational companies and receiving awards in the billions of dollars. Baum Hedlund attorneys combine kindness and compassion for those unjustly damaged with fierce unrelenting and unmatched battle against the corporations who put profit and greed above human life and safety. In many years as a court reporter, I have never seen such skill and integrity in a courtroom. I am proud and honored to have worked with Michael Baum, Brent Wisner, and their trial team of Super Lawyers.

We were very lucky to have found Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman. Mr. Aristei was so professional and knew what we were going to have to do after the train crash. Their staff was so helpful and was concerned about future crashes. There were so many legalities in a case like this, but thank goodness someone could help us.

Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman stood out from the start. My confidante and myself initially interviewed Ron Goldman via conference call as well as a couple of other law firms. He gave us all the time we needed to ask and answer questions and never made us feel like we were cutting into the rest of his day. Once I hired his firm to carry my case, he assigned Timothy Loranger as the lead attorney on it. Tim was absolutely wonderful! When needing to talk about difficult subjects he would even share bits of his personal life to make me feel free to talk openly. He turned out to be the perfect fit for me being comfortable because we both had one daughter and they were the same age. So, conversation was always easy and not strictly business which made me feel more like I had a friend in a business situation. Everyone I ever had contact with at BHAG was very welcoming from the receptionist to the assistants to the actual attorneys. I was always responsive to their requests for information or documents needing signed yet if I was unavailable and needed an extra day or two, I was never felt pressured for a deadline. Tim was also available to me 24/7 which is atypical for attorneys! Don’t take advantage of it though. I didn’t. When given that awesome opportunity we need to be respectful of it! BHAG is not your typical “phones off and leave the office at 4 on Friday and call back Monday morning firm”! They will be there for you and the couple of times I had to travel there from out of town they put me in a very nice accommodation and were available if I needed anything! Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman was awesome! I would highly recommend them!

I hired Baum Hedlund in 2010; t was an unbelievably difficult case that should have been dead on arrival. I sued GSK, the drug manufacturer, for the death of my husband. What made this case especially tricky was that he was taking a generic drug. In our country if you take a generic drug, you have no legal recourse. Baum Hedlund's brief was so masterful that we ended up winning a trial in Illinois after a 6-week jury trial. I was married to an attorney and obviously knew many attorneys of a high caliber. What sets Baum Hedlund apart from most law firms is their concern and their ability to make you feel like you are their only client. This has been a long, rigorous process and they make you feel like you are family. They are passionate about their causes and encourage and support their clients, such as me, to be advocates. They truly want to make a difference in the world. They clearly made a difference in the life of my family I can't imagine any better lawyers.

I have now worked closely with Baum Hedlund in two mass tort/product liability cases - Cymbalta and Roundup. Simply stated the firm is superb and I add a special shout-out for Mike Baum and Brent Wisner. Mike is a true leader and a brilliant legal strategist. Brent Wisner is a terrific young trial lawyer. He is now and will be a national trial superstar for many years to come. The Baum Hedlund richly deserves recognition and status as a Best Law Firm.
