    I know Mr. Traut personally as he represented me in a case and as a peer. He committed gross negligence in handling my own case. Afterwards, I learned from many others in the community that the handling of my case was typical of his firm and his representation...very little representation resulting in clients who lose valuable rights. He attempted to bill me for things that were excluded from the retainer, etc. I would NEVER refer a case to Mr. Traut or his firm. Read less
