My husband was the one who forced me to go and talk with Bayard. After working with him and his staff through this process I am thankful that I went to see him. Bayard is very professional and was comfortable to work with. It was nice that they handled all the correspondence with the insurance company which was a weight off my shoulder. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

This was a worry-free experience. Mr. Marin made me feel relaxed confident in his expertise. I am very satisfied with the outcome of my legal matter.

A Client

I was in a car accident which resulted in a back injury. The man who had hit us was not the owner of the car he was driving and he was uninsured so I wasn't sure what would happen with my medical bills. After panicking a little and telling a friend about my situation, I was referred to Bayard Marin to see if he could help me. Mr. Marin was very pleasant and after we talked for awhile, he took some information and eased my mind that something could be done and he and his staff went to work on my case. They kept in contact with me every step of the way and let me know how everything was going. The end result was that all my medical bills were paid and I was even compensated for my injury. I was very happy with service I received!

Bayard made my legal experience painless and simple. From the start he and his office handled everything with the insurance company taking away all the stress of the situation.
