"I called Kauffman & Associates to consult on my case to see if I had a claim. I walked into the Alta Bates hospital at 10 PM, fell asleep in waiting room waiting to get results of my EKG and woke up at 6 AM and the hospital had told me I was discharged my name was never called nor was I ever woken by the nurses. I was never given paperwork. Finally the hospital checked me out and discharged me with no issues. I called Kauffman & Associates and many other law firms after seeing the yelp pages to see if I even have a case. Many law firms just promised to call me back and never did or just told me via yelp messages their firms case can't take the case.

However Kauffman & Associates called me back and I spoke with Michael. Michael understood the facts of the case and while I was lucky enough to be discharged with no medical issues Michael then told me that due to their being no medical problem found -- the hospital wouldn't be responsible (only if had I had a medical problem that was later found a case could be established.) But Mike with Kauffman & Associates then proceeded to tell me whom to call at the Admin offices at Alta Bates and to write a letter about the incident and guided me thru how I could still make something out of this terrible incident.

Mike w/ Kauffman & Associates spent 24m just talking to me and filling me with great knowledge I wouldn't have known otherwise. He didn't charge me or anything. From what I took away was Kauffman & Associates was the only firm out of 11 I contacted that called me back and really helped me and guided me thru dealing with this.

This firm really has great customer service and I felt like I was being taken care off even though I didn't give them a dime and didn't retain them at all. Now in the future I I'll go with these guys just cause I felt they are NOT just out to make franks per hour but to do justice for the client. Mike with the firm seemed knowledgeable and well spoken in the field and from my understanding I could trust him in front of a jury and judge. 5 stars!

Had I never called this firm I would have let it slide but now I know" - Lavish P. (San Francisco, CA)
