“I need not tell you that a medical malpractice case is an emotionally draining experience for the physician. During the case, one cannot help but question his or her moral fiber, judgment and medical confidence. Throughout the case, attorney Baum handled the defense masterfully.”
“I believe [our defense verdict] is no small part due to the high degree of skill and professionalism exhibited by you. … We also appreciate your sensitivity in dealing with our emotional involvement in the case. You never treated that lightly or in any way made us feel that that was inappropriate.”
“Reflecting on the trial and the months leading up to it, you were compassionate and brought a wealth of experience to the defense. … In short, were I given the opportunity to handpick my defense attorney, I could have done no better than you. Thank you.”
“I believe Mr. Baum’s attention to detail, thorough preparation, skillful courtroom approach, professional demeanor, and sincere commitment to representing our interests were instrumental in the plaintiff’s decision to withdraw the case during the first day of testimony.”
