Vigorous Legal Defense

A Personal Note from MoDocs President
Martin M. Bauman

Dear Missouri Doctor;

Selecting the right attorney to represent you can be difficult.  Making that selection under the threat of lawsuit is even more onerous. MoDocs has diligently sought the best attorneys in the state to represent our doctors.  As a result, we have chosen law firms who represent you in the courtroom while being cognizant of your personal needs.  These are truly exceptional attorneys. As president of MoDocs, I personally pledge that you’ll be unconditionally satisfied with the defense of your claim or MoDocs will give you your money back. If you’re interested in knowing more about MoDocs, simply contact us.

Respectfully yours,


Martin M. Bauman
