  • Great job, excellent result.

    “Casey Baxter did a great job representing me during the criminal court proceedings and advised me how to best proceed after being arrested for a DUII. As for my criminal case, he guided me through the process to get into the DUII diversion program that will end with a dismissal if all conditions are completed successfully; In addition, Mr. Baxter did an excellent job representing me during the DMV hearing. Even with the hopeful dismissal of my criminal case, I was still facing a 90 day ODL suspension for failing a breath test. After successfully making his arguments to the Administrative Law Judge during the DMV hearing, Casey was able to get a dismissal of my case without any suspension or fine. Casey is a knowledgeable and competent attorney who was able to help me through this difficult time in my life. The dismissal of the ODL suspension (a rare outcome) in particular helped my situation greatly, to say the least. I would surely recommend Mr. Baxter to any person who is in need of a great DUII defense lawyer.”

  • 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.”
