Paul and his staff did an excellent job of representing me. He always kept me alerted on what to expect throughout my case's progress, kept me informed of progress on my case, consulted with me whenever legal or financial decisions were made, and was generally informative about my case and its progress. Paul never gave me unrealistic expectations concerning the potential outcome of my case. His experience in dealing with a large corporation's legal department was invaluable. I would like to say that my association with Paul Bavarnick was very rewarding. I'd hire him again in a minute!

When I called Paul, he promptly returned my call, set up a time to meet, traveled to me, arrived near the location of my injury, visited with me, then we went to the location where he asked the property managers questions related to my case, and took photographs. He told me up front the obstacles, procedures and the approximate value of the case. In the end it settled slightly higher than what he stated up front, and that was due to his extra vigilance on a negotiation with my health care provider, who was not directly related to the aim of the suit. You will develop a freindship along the way with Paul and his staff, because of his and their deep integrity, involvment and understanding of your case. I consider Paul a friend and a superb attorney, including his staff. I do and have recommended Paul to others and will continue to.
