Mark may be a good guy as I don't know him. However, after speaking to him he kinda hung up on me as I was expressing my pain and suffering. Guess there is no $$$ in pain, suffering and emotional stress anymore.

I have known Mark Baumkel for most of his career. He has excelled from the very begining. I have had experience with other attorneys in various business relationships and none have won my confidence and trust as Mark has. I am always sure that Mark will tell me what I need to hear and not necessarily what I want to hear. I believe he is a credit to his profession and have heard him described as brilliant by others.

Mr. Baumkel is the best lawyer I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He not only has knowledge about the law he has a very big heart. He was very prompt about returning
my calls and he even emailed me on a daily basis. I always had my questions asked and answered quickly. In fact, he was so fast and thorough' he was waiting on me to finish what I was suppose to do before he could continue. I consider myself very lucky to have him for my attorney.

I endorse this lawyer's work. Mark is a terrific lawyer. Bright, energetic, relentless. He , never stops working, never stops thinking and has passion for his work that is apparent to his clients, opponents and the courts in which he practices. You want him on your side and not against you. Powell Miller

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I endorse this lawyer's work. It is always a pleasure to work with Mark. His analytical ability is second to none when it comes to vetting a potential class action and, once undertaken, his preparation is thorough and his work is top notch.
