Our Clients Say it Best
"I am pleased to report that we just settled the matter at a very favorable number. It has been a pleasure to work with both of you on this one (Terry for the first time, and Scott for the umpteenth time). You both did an excellent job, and I look forward to working with you again."
“I want to thank all of Bates Group LLC’s compliance staff, specially Leigh Wittick, for their commitment to help us file our New Membership Application in approximately 36 business days (might be record time). This included the extra challenge of working through the most difficult time of the year where many employees take their vacations, Christmas and New Year! Thanks for all your hard work and constant follow up and status updates given during all of those days.”
"Carol and Lindsey - You’re a life saver!! Thank you so much for getting this P&L to me in less than a day. I appreciate you all!
“I just wanted to let you know that Dennis Dumas testified last Friday and did an excellent job. His subject matter knowledge and resume are top-notch and, perhaps more importantly, he presented beautifully…I’d be happy to highly recommend him to others. Thanks for your help on this on short notice.”
“It’s been a true pleasure working with each of you over the past decade-plus. You always make me seem like a genius to my clients for recommending you once they see your experts perform, whether it’s on the witness stand or creating reports. You’re the best!”
“I have practiced over 45 years as a lawyer focusing upon securities arbitration, litigation, and regulatory matters, and attorney and accountants malpractice. I have never met or worked with a finer group of people and forensic experts as the people in the Bates Group.”
“We won! Read the opinion and Judge's view of your fine work! Let all who work at Bates on this know what a fine job they did.”
“I just wanted to reach out and say what an awesome job I think Julie is doing. She is super responsive and great at what she does. When I am under the gun getting figures and damages analyses together for my client or for the brief, she is right there with me handling all of my incessant requests for data and calculations. “
“Dennis proved to be an expert at being an expert witness. He helped us understand the issues related to supervision, helped us debunk their claims, and provided valuable testimony on the issue of supervision and our compliance with our duty of supervision.”
“We won. As always thanks for your awesome help – your schedules are mentioned in the award!”
“I want my company to understand why you specifically (and Bates overall) is such a valuable partner. Bruce, you were indispensable to this outcome. I cannot tell you how much I value your wisdom and insight.“
“Despite Claimant's use of three different experts on suitability, regulatory issues and damages, our one expert, Bruce Cramer, from Bates, was able to take apart their arguments piece by piece. The Panel noted that our expert demonstrated that the investments that were recommended were suitable and profitable.”
“Thank you for your support in this matter, and Joe successfully brought the P&Ls in and was in essence our record custodian as to online hits, which was extremely helpful to avoid having someone else having to authenticate the documents. It was a pleasure as always to have Joe on a case.“
“John -- thanks. Your testimony was excellent and very helpful. I look forward to working with you again.”
“It was a pleasure working with you and Dennis. You both did a great job and made us look good.”
“I very much appreciate your willingness to help on this matter, and I look forward to working with you on another matter in the future. Your quick response and approach won you a spot at the top of my list for future experts.”
“I am pleased to inform you that it was a complete win, with the Panel dismissing Claimant's claims with prejudice and recommending expungement of this matter from the U4. I want to thank you again for your invaluable assistance, it was very much appreciated.”
“The jury just came back and found him guilty of all 21 counts of the Indictment. Thank you so much for your help and cooperation. I will definitely use you [Bates] again the next time I need an expert in this area. Even defense counsel said he was impressed with you.”
“We settled this case today on terms favorable to our client. Thanks for your work in support of our defense. It was a pleasure meeting and working with you, and we are appreciative for your very assistance that helped put us in position to do what was needed here. I hope to work with you in the future.”
“Unreal!!!! Massacre!!!!!” (on the $0 award our client received in a case that Bates Group’s expert testified, consulted and we performed all of the analysis work.)
“We greatly appreciate your hard work and diligence on this [insurance] case. I’m sure it wasn’t easy having to crank out those exhibits on such a short deadline, and you managed to do it with flying colors.”
“Thank you so very much for ALL of your help with this one. We could always count on you!”
