David got it right

This is the attorney who I should’ve went with –To put it short out of all the attorneys I consulted with David was the only one who gave me the cut and dry straight forward answer in how to best handle my case unfortunately I went along with the majority ideas and I really should’ve hired David because if I had I wouldn’t have done any jail time or plea bargaining which led to lots of money, classes, community labor, probation for years after. David got it right with the information I gave when I told my side of the story.  – posted by Anonymous, March 31, 2021

Committed and Tenacious Lawyer!

I made it through a difficult layoff in the entertainment industry thanks to the wisdom and guidance of David Baum. He is a highly experienced attorney that helped me navigate through complicated paperwork to ensure that my rights were not violated. He is dedicated to providing outstanding representation to his clients, and has a well-deserved reputation for being a committed and tenacious lawyer!

The one and only attorney I will be calling is Mr. Baum!

I was involved in an extremely high profile federal criminal court case in Downtown Los Angeles because a former boss of mine was under investigation by the FBI and ultimately charged /convicted/locked up for many years. Mr. Baum is a truly brilliant attorney who not only has the intellect and experience it takes to maneuver through an extremely complicated and multilayered case like mine, but he does so with a Zen like calm that keeps everyone guessing. While representing me, Mr. Baum had no choice but to juggle many hats and I cannot thank him or sing his praises enough! He found secret exits out of the courtroom (to avoid the daily awaiting photographers and reporters after one had chased us out the building and through the parking lot trying to take my photo and get a statement) to making sure that my safety was maintained throughout the entire experience (prep, trial and even afterwards). I pray that I never have to go through another trial, but if I do, you can guarantee that the one and only attorney I will be calling is Mr. Baum!

Excellent Attorney

I have the good fortune to work closely with David on a particularly difficult case. He is able to balance his professionalism with his passion for what is morally and ethically correct. Additionally, his timely communication and continued availability are excellent. It is a pleasure to work with a professional like David.

A True Professional

Mr. Baum is a true professional with an excellent work ethic and a stellar ability in representing his clients. From the very start, he explains what to expect, while making sure his clients are treated with the utmost respect. Mr. Baum recognizes the importance of communication, super-serving his clients while striving to make the process as transparent and painless as possible. He is always honest and straight forward, taking the time to thoroughly explain what is going on at court as well as behind the scenes, answering any and all questions the client may have. I admire Mr. Baum’s general philosophy in which he practices law and I would highly recommend him to any individuals seeking a referral without hesitation.

Criminal Defense Case

We hired David Baum to defend a friend or ours who did not have the resources to hire an attorney. It was a difficult case to defend, but David did a good job making the best of the circumstances and evidence. He is thorough, conscientious and professional. We would recommend him for a variety of legal cases.

Fantastic Attorney

A Fantastic Attorney & Extremely Helpful! When I needed an attorney, I found Mr. Baum through a mutual acquaintance. He has been my attorney for nearly four years, and I can’t say enough about him. He has been extremely competent, trustworthy, respectful, and unbelievably helpful. He has guided me through an extremely difficult time, and I know that if it weren’t for David Baum, I would have come close to a nervous breakdown. He has truly guided me through extremely trying moments, and if anyone needs a wonderful attorney – who actually truly gives a damn about not only his client, but making things right – you can’t find better representation.

I could not have asked for a better Attorney

I had a car accident last year. I got hit by another driver, it wasn’t my fault. My car was brand new at the time. David did a wonderful and very quick job. I asked him to help me to get reimbursed for the diminished value of my car! I could not have asked for a better attorney! I will definitely recommend him to my friends! Thank you again!
