    Mike is an excellent trial attorney as evidenced by the results he has obtained for his clients over the years. He is truly passionate about his clients and their cases. I have spoken with other litigators who have witnessed Mike in action and they share the sentitment that he is among the best trial attorneys in the state of Illinois. I would not hesitate to refer a client to Mike Baird.
