Client Reviews & Testimonials

  • Highest sense of urgency

    “I had a rather complicated case. Multiple states involved and multiple scenarios and issues that arose daily. I found Casey to extremely honest and transparent. I felt he gave me the most specific information he could. I never felt he was dragging or putting my case behind other cases. He gave me information in complete transparency and never said what he thought sounded good to me. He wasn't afraid of the tough conversations. I would highly recommend this lawyer and this firm if you need complete transparency and accurate information. His office staff consist of incredible work ethic and professionalism. They are always available and provide precise appointments and feedback if any is available. I have had a great experience and couldn't be happier with the result of my case as well as the journey to attain that result. Best I have ever used.”

  • We appreciate all that Casey provided for our family and will refer him to others.

    “Casey Baxter was retained by myself and my husband to assist with a DUI case for my husband. My husband was sick at the time battling cancer and Casey was instrumental in assisting us with the communication to the DA to allow my husbands case to be set forward while he was going through treatments. Unfortunately for my husband he lost his battle with Cancer and had it not been for Casey we would have had much more to worry about than his care. Because Casey took on the task of communicating with the DA and the courts we were able to spend the quality time with my husband that he needed before he passed.”

  • I am very thankful for him.

    “My experience with Casey was more than I could have even ever imagined. I have never had one of my children in trouble before. He explained everything to me, was very patient with all of my questions and was able to get my son the best deal he could for him. My son said nothing but positive words about Casey and knowing that he was in Cory's corner made this awful process manageable for me. I didn't really understand all the verbiage while the lawyer was explaining next steps during all these court hearings, but Casey would take me outside the court room and explain what was going to happen next. I am very thankful for him - so is my son.”

  • By far the best

    “My experience with Casey Baxter was nothing short of amazing. His whole office is so helpful, his paralegal and secretary are great as well. He is on your team 100%, other attorneys seem wishy washy but not Casey, he truly seems genuine and willing to go to bat to fight for you. He made me completely confident in going to trial. In my particular case we didn't have to because he was able to wheel and deal with the D.A. And get me an incredible deal. On top of that he was able to do everything in a timely matter. I had a nearly impossible deadline, we talked at 11 am and he had me on the docket for 1 pm that same day. I feel safe on Mr. Baxter's case load, anyone would. His background is very impressive, everything a person would want in a man defending them in a courtroom. When comes to little things other attorneys need to be reminded of with him there is no need, he is already on top of it. In other words Casey Baxter and his staff are a great team and are by far the best at representing you in your time of need.”
