  • I would highly recommend Mr. Baxter.

    “Mr. Baxter was very helpful and very knowledgeable concerning the specifics of my case. He essentially streamlined the court process for me, which allowed me to focus on the end details of my case, rather than worry about what possible outcomes there could be. Instead of ending up with two convictions, I was able to enroll in the diversion program, take traffic school, and pay the fines. We all make mistakes, and I was very glad that Mr. Baxter was there to help me with my case. I would highly recommend Mr. Baxter.”

  • Gift from God

    “Well I was recommended to Me Baxter from another local attorney that handled my complicated caseloads for years before we had a falling out due to my inability to communicate. So I have God on my side and some criminal and civil cases that are very complex and from what I've heard and my faith that God has pointed me in the right direction I look forward to working with Casey and his team!”

    “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 :)”
