Client Reviews & Testimonials

  • 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. ”

  • 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.”

  • Simply The Best

    “The state of Oregon accused me of a crime and the did not believe me. Mr. Baxter did believe me he and his staff were a God send and my case was dismissed because of Mr. Baxter being excellent as a lawyer.. Thank you Casey. Bless you all......”

  • 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.”
