Unfortunately I found myself needing legal counsel for a federal criminal I stupidly committed in the spring of 2008. I was looking at the real possibility of going to federal prison for 12 plus years. I hired Mr. Baum to represent me. This turned out to be the best move possible. Mr. Baum immediately found me medical help for the tremendous amount of emotional stress I was under. The government waited an additional five plus years to actually charge me, all the while Mr. Baum stayed by my side. Mr. Baum was always honest and forthright with me the entire time. The government did offer me a plea deal. Mr. Baum explained the risk and benefits of taking a plea deal and of going to trial. I decided the best move was to take a plea deal, like the vast majority of all federal cases like mine do. However, with Alan’s legal expertise I was able to provide a very strong defense to the court for leniency in my judgment. In the end thanks to Alan I received an incredibly light sentence. I would recommend Mr. Baum to anyone facing a federal charge without any hesitation.

The bottom line is this, you can hire an attorney who tells you exactly what you want to hear so you hire them and then get disappointed when things dont go the way you want them to. Or you can hire a realist who will advise you as to the best approach considering all the variables of your case, your history, and your prospectus. This is the kind of attorney I feel Alan is. He is a straight shooter who will help you understand the best approach to your particular situation and advise you accordingly. Alan genuinely represented not just me but my whole family and anyone else who honestly cares for me during my case because ultimately you are not the only one fighting for the best outcome. He is thorough, experienced, and knowledgeable in his craft and it was proven in my case. I was facing about 13 years for drug offenses and ended up getting some house arrest and probation due to his guidence. I would personally recommend Alan to anyone I feel deserves a fair and honest shake at making their particular nightmare the best it can realistically be. If your considering Alan you're at the very least moving in the right direction.

I hired Alan because of his fantastic reputation and he did not disappoint. I was looking at more than 15 years for a large white collar crime case and now I'm going home to be with my family. I don't know what these other people here are posting but I can assure you he did everything he could to do the best possible job for me and he delivered big time. I'm not sitting in jail and will be spending time with my family this holiday season I would recommend Alan to anyone needing a great Lawyer. He was very considerate and caring about my case and my family and again I would recommend anyone needing a lawyer to call him you will not be disappointed.

Mr. Baum was the best lawyer I ever hired, he paid attention to our family needs. He defended and won a criminal case for me in 2012. My family and I will be forever grateful. First, to God, for putting Mr. Baum in our path. I recommend him 110%. My family is all together and very happy.

Alan was very professional and always looked out for my best interest. I looked at hiring other attorneys and settled on Alan. I believe I made the right choice and was found not guilty by a jury. Thanks Alan!!

Alan is a good lawyer. He was very helpful and precise with everything that needed to be done in my families case. We must have called him 100 times during the case and he was always available and understanding. I would definitely use him again.

Mr. Baum took over my case after insisting on a large retainer. Unrefundable of course. Then proceeded to do nothing, the federal docket shows that he did nothing on my behalf except file for time extensions. He did not fight for me, insisted on my taking a plea, didn't prepare me for court and when all was said and done he washed his hands of me and told me that I wasn't his problem anymore. He does not do any work on your behalf and preys on uninformed clients. If you want to go to prison, hire him.

All I can say is DO NOT USE this man. He is a despicable human being. I fear he will retaliate against me and my family. He forced me to take a deal or to get a second mortgage on my house and guarantee the money for him to defend me. He had a thug collections guy make all the threatening calls to protect himself legally and Liam no knowledge. Pompous, and disgraceful. A shame he is allowed to practice law

Watch out for Alan Baum. He has been ordered by the court to return fees because of improper representation. He should be disbarred, but is smooth and protects himself from misrepresentation suits by forcing clients into plea agreements under false pretenses. Watch out for Baum, watch out for his firm and I just wish I had the resources to see how many others he has screwed to launch class action. A shame he is allowed to continue to hurt people

Rest assured that if you hire this attorney you are undoubtedly in the best legal hands! Alan handled a very complicated case that my husband was involved in. Our whole family not only appreciated his expertise, but also his straight forward honesty and realistic attitude. He prepared and defended my husband with his entirety. His dedication is unmatched. His expertise is undeniable! Thank you for your perseverance and support Alan. E
