Great Lawyer

I had the great opportunity to hire David Baum as a clerk in my law firm before he became a member of the California Bar. After passing the bar and going out on his own, David continued to work with me on cases and after 15 years has continued to demonstrate all that which a great lawyer does.

Intelligent, professional, kind, and resourceful

David was referred to me for a case which involved oil and mineral rights which were never transferred to me by the seller. He is a fantastic resource. David is approachable, down to earth, extremely intelligent, professional, kind, and resourceful. And he’s great when it comes to answering his own phone! Thanks for all your help David! I know who I’ll be going back to the next time I need legal assistance.

David has never let me down

David Baum has been my attorney for over 10 years and a great support for me as well. We’ve been in a variety legal situations (over a dozen ) that we’re unusually tough and he has never let me down. I continuing to call David and refer him for 10+ years I hope speaks loudly for itself. Lastly, I’ll mention I believe Dave effectiveness is due to his mediation skills as I’ve seen him navigate through nasty courts , DAs, and complex complaints to get what’s best for me. Dave’s honest, And a really great person. I’ll be calling him later today as we move past another matter and he Always Gets Back to me!

Dave is thoughtful, to the point, and most of all — effective! I was involved in a Lyft accident as a passenger and he handled the case for me. He knew the process well and secured a fair settlement. Not only that, but he was respectful during COVID to meet me outdoors and wear a mask when we needed to meet in person. Strong recommend for me!

The most intelligent, caring, attentive, and responsive professionals that I’ve ever met

David is one of the most intelligent, caring, attentive, and responsive professionals that I’ve ever met in this industry. You would be lucky to have the opportunity to do business with him.  My daughter who is in college, was in a bad contract with the residential management company who were also slumlords taking advantage of young college students. David researched and found the chinks in their armor which ultimately led to our victory. He was patient with us and communicated clearly and directly with the management company. He acted with integrity and in a few short months my daughter was relieved of over 90% of the financial responsibility. Her credit was restored and she is now free from the stress of debt and harassment by creditors. I highly recommend Baum Law. This will be a decision that you will look back on and be happy that you made!

Fair, Kind & Knowledgeable

I have used David’s legal services twice over the past 10 years. I can confidently say that David takes great pride in representing his clients, does his due diligence in thoroughly understanding the situation and making sure to address any and all concerns while using his extensive understanding of both the law and constitutional rights to put his clients in the best standing for the outcome of their case. David is unique in the sense that his motivations of his lawful pursuits are just and he is no ordinary lawyer wanting to run the clock to increase the money. David is fair, kind and knowledgeable, he makes himself available to answer questions and lets you know where you are at in the process to alleviate any unnecessary stress and anxiety. I would certainly recommend him to anyone looking for representation.
