José Báez is an excellent Attorney. He helped me through one of the toughest times in my life. He gave me support and was very professional and of high quality. José was always accessible and always returns my calls without delay. I just can’t say enough about José Báez. Anybody who’s been injured in a truck accident, or any other accident should definitely hire José Báez. I strongly recommend Mr. Báez.

Not only have I had the pleasure of working alongside Jose, but I’ve also been on the receiving end of his handling of the transference of my father’s estate. Jose and the Baez Legal Group demonstrated a kind of versatility, accountability, and dedication rarely seen outside of large international law firms. He handles a wide variety of cases with seeming ease, often surprising both his clients and I with the scope of his knowledge of different legal disciplines. Jose is not one of the myriads of lawyers that always seem too busy to allocate the proper amount of care and time to their clients; in fact, he was often in the habit of reaching out first, even if just to see how we’re doing. Should you wish to receive an unprecedented amount of excellence in the handling of your case, the Baez Legal Group should be your first and only resort.

Jose stuck with me in a very difficult case that many other lawyers would not even take on. It was a three-year battle and luckily with Jose’s help I was not charged criminally. Jose pays very close attention to details and his responses to the opposing side were thorough and full of substance.
