Client Reviews & Testimonials

  • 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.”

  • The extra mileThe extra mileThe extra mileThe extra mile

    “Mr. Baxter and his staff care. Plain and simple. They care what happens to you. From the first meeting I never felt like a name or a number. I was a person whose outcome mattered. I was charged with two felonies and without the hard work and knowledge of the courtroom that Casey provided their is no doubt I would have been convicted. It was amazing to watch Casey battle back when things seemed to be going the other way. He studied case files and did his homework late into the night so as to insure a favorable outcome. I'm so thankful I didn't plea bargain and allowed Casey to show me his skills. His knowledge at times seem to even help the judge. The cocky District Attorney who felt he had it wrapped up truly walked away with his head hung. Casey Baxter knows the courtroom, he knows the law, he knows what will work and not work and most of all he respects his clients. He understands and cares about the fact that his performance will have a profound effect on your life. I interviewed 7 lawyers in the area. Casey was the last one I interviewed. So thankful I went with Baxter Law as today Iam a free man and can get on with my life. Thank you Casey. Thank you Emily :)”

  • 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.”

  • Highly Recommend

    “I actually hired Casey based on the reviews from Avvo. Since I live in WA, but got my DUII in Oregon, my situation was a little different than some, but Casey has been able to answer my questions all through the process. My case was pretty standard as to what was going to happen (and did happen). Mostly, Casey eased my fears with the whole process and made the ordeal much easier than if I had tried to handle this on my own. ”

  • 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!!!!”
