Unfortunately, I was almost killed in a motor vehicle collision two years ago and at the advice of multiple friends who have used him in the past, I consulted with Mr. Bakst and from day one knew I had made the right choice. If you are looking for a lawyer that does not return phone calls, emails, or texts the same day, then yes, Mr. Bakst is probably not for you. If you are looking for a lawyer that DOES return calls, emails, texts and keeps you up to date with every single document copied and sent to you in the mail, then Mr. Bakst is right for you. Other attorneys, clients, and defense counsel/insurance claim representatives know who he is and have nothing but the best to say about him. At the end of the day, Mr. Bakst had no problem securing a six figure settlement for myself in what was one of the scariest incidences of my life-a life that almost ended too early. I would not put any weight as to the reviewer who said he is incredibly unprofessional--Mr. Bakst is an absolute class act who commands respect from his peers, and a kind soul to his clients who value him as the preeminent personal injury attorney in this area, if not whole State of Ohio. Call Jeffrey any part of the day--and see how quick he responds to your message, if not picking up the phone right away. As mentioned by other reviewers, Jeffrey was not only my lawyer, but also somebody I consider a friend for the invaluable Counsel he gave me during a tough tough time.

Several family members have used Jeff on a variety of civil cases over the last 25 yrs. I recently hired him over a dispute I was having with my insurance company. He works incredibly hard for his clients to obtain a successful resolution exceeding expectations of his clients. My parents trusted Jeff as their attorney and as a friend. In dealing with him on this case I can see why they trusted him. Like the title of this comment states..........This is the attorney that you want on your side.

This is one person/attorney whose character exceeds all expectations. I had heard for many years from a friend of mine what a great attorney this guy was. The words fell on deaf ears until I had the pleasure to meet him and see him in action. The only unfortunate thing about Mr. Bakst is his practise is limited to representing victims of insurance companies. Imagine what he could do in other areas of the law. His specialization tells you he knows his stuff and executes with perfection. He deserves a gold medal. Mr. Bakst exceeds expectations and is so passionate about his work. It's one thing to know the law...it's totally another to conduct yourself with such conviction and passion! He's got it goin on. He's organized, talented and knowledgeable. He makes me want to be a better person.....
