In 2011, M-M Bierbaum helped us deal with my son's legal issue in Santa Cruz, when he was a student at Cal Berkeley, and we lived in southern California. She was very personable, direct, clear, and her office staff was amazing at keeping us apprised of what was happening.

Mary_Margaret Bierbaum offers and executes excellent legal advice and representation. Her attention to detail, extensive knowledge of the law and one's rights, combines with her strong positive spirit, uplifting and turning cases upside down for dismissals and monumental outcomes. I couldn't be more pleased with how she conducts her practice. Having an amazing secretary/paralegal was a huge benefactor. This allowed me to easily discuss my case in detail at any given time while also providing detailed updates, reminders, and important questions relative to my case. I can say that she goes above and beyond for every case she obtains and I highly recommend hiring her for any legal matters. She's not only professional but is genuinely a good spirited determined woman that prepares to represent her clients in the most favorable outcomes using extensive research and facts that are truly benefactors in dismissing your case. I will forever recommend Ms. Mary-Margaret Bierbaum to family, friends, and anyone struggling with serious charges. I can't thank her enough.

Mary-Margaret saved my life. She is the most compassionate, caring, dedicated and intelligent lawyer I have ever met. She not only fights for your rights, but she fights to get your life back to normal. Dealing with lawyers, court dates, paperwork, insurance companies, the DMV and district attorneys can be the scariest and most overwhelming experience to live through. For me, this was all occurring after the most traumatic and life threatening experience of my life. I can't imagine anyone else I would want on my side, fighting for me, than Mary-Margaret Bierbaum. She stuck with my case and continued to diligently investigate through seven months of being thrown through the ringer by the courts and DMV. She stuck by my side and fought for me at every chance, doing everything in her power to not only help me in the courts, but to provide me with resources to make my medical, insurance, and DMV situations easier and my overall life better. She is more than a lawyer. Mary-Margaret Bierbaum is a public servant defending those that cannot help themselves. She is no longer my lawyer, but my friend and role model.
