Client Reviews & Testimonials

  • DUI, Reckless, and Interfering Defense

    “I selected Mr. Baxter to defend me against charges stemming from a DUI arrest. In addition to the DUI, I was also charged with reckless driving and interfering with the duties of a peace officer. Mr. Baxter's calm demeanor and support during this difficult, embarrassing incident were his primary assets. His extensive experience working in Deschutes County, in particular the District Attorney's office, also were factors in my decision. In the end, Mr. Baxter was able to get the Reckless and Interfering Charges dismissed and I am currently enrolled in diversion for the DUI. This was the best possible scenario I could have envisioned after facing the possibility of additional charges that would have resulted in substantial penalties. I have certainly learned a life lesson as a result of this arrest and am thankful to Mr. Baxter for his representation.”

  • All around a FANTASTIC attorney!!!!

    “I would recommend Casey to anyone needing a criminal defense attorney. Casey has fought on my behalf in the Deschutes County court system for almost a year now. He was granted to me as my public defender. I've never seen an attorney work harder for a client. He has been compassionate and supportive...from day one he explained each facet of my case to me in terms I could understand, and walked me through each step of the legal process of my case. Because of Casey's experience and hard work, I was able to present the state with positive proof of my own progress and get two of my charges dismissed and my original charge continued on a conditional discharge. Casey helped me show the state that I had worked very hard to change my life and lifestyle...and he went above and beyond to make sure I was given credit for all of my hard work. All around a FANTASTIC attorney!!!!”

  • I can look toward a better tomorrow because of what he accomplished.I can look toward a better tomorrow because of what he accomplished.

    “Casey Baxter has been the most amazing attorney, and has truly changed the course of my future. He took the time to listen to me explain about everything that was going on in my life, not just about what happened on the day of my incident, and was able to get the judge to listen as well. He was able to change the outcome into something that was actually manageable for me. He and his staff were always available whenever I needed to ask a question or make a change. I am very grateful for all he has done for me and can look toward a better tomorrow because of what he accomplished.”

  • Casey Baxter is one of the best lawyers

    “Casey Baxter is one of the best lawyers I've worked with. His many years of experience in the courtroom as well as a former prosecutor was apparent in negotiating my specific case. He worked on my case until a resolution was accomplished that he and I both determined was the best outcome for me and all the work he put in for my release, plea and sentencing was performed in a time frame that was appropriate for not only my case but for me as well. I would highly recommend Mr. Baxter for anyone looking to hire a tremendously enthusiastic albeit law savvy attorney. Thanks Casey!”
