    I have known Mr. Goldman professionally for approximately 15 years. We have litigated cases on the opposite side he as the attorney for the plaintiff and me as an attorney for the defendant. I have found Mr. Goldman to be extremely competent and ethical in all responsibilities. I would rate him in the highest category for both ethical standards and legal ability.

    My family hired Baum Hedlund to represent us in our case against a trucking company responsible for the death of my mother. We did not get to meet senior trial attorney Ron Goldman until the end of our journey, but it was clear he too was part of the team we had come to trust. Everyone at Baum Hedlund continually demonstrated how much they care about your individual situation and that you are important to them. What you think and what you feel is very important to them.
