The worse lawyer I have ever dealt with. Never returns phone calls, never responds to emails, does not file complaints in court on time, does not follow up the case. Needs professional medical help.

Chris Baum was responsive, professional and knowledgeable when it came to helping me with a landlord-tenant matter. He gave me the pluses and minuses to every situation and followed through with all the stages in a forward thinking and timely matter. He walked me through the entire process and took care of everything to remove the horrible people living in my property. Thanks Chris for getting me out of this nightmare!!

I urgently needed general information for an eviction case and couldn't access my own lawyer since it was a Saturday. I asked Mr. Baum the question and he immediately responded via phone and email. He was beyond helpful and prompt. Thank you!

Relationship: Worked for lawyer
I had the honor of working for Chris Baum when I was in law school as an intern. He taught me a great deal about civil litigation. Since I have begun practicing law I've worked with Mr. Baum on several matters and his professionalism, work ethic, and legal knowledge is absolutely amazing. I regularly refer cases to him. I can endorse Chris Baum without any reservation. He is a great attorney.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I've worked with Chris and his partner,Tom Bailey, on a number of matters since they formed Baum & Bailey, and have refereed cases to Chris and Tom as well. Chris is an exceptional young lawyer; don't be fooled by the number of years he's been practising--Chris more than holds his own with lawyers who've been admitted to the bar two and three times longer than he. He's spent his career "on the ground" and he combines this experience with his previous business experience, intelligence, common sense, willingness to learn and to take risks, and a toughness desire to win. Chris is a pleasure to work with and an excellent litigtor with extensive knowledge of, in particular, bankruptcy law and landlord tenant law. And he's a quick study when dealing with new issues.
