Client Reviews & Testimonials

  • Saved my life

    “Thank you all for the hard work. I was facing three felonies which thanks to Casey Baxter, Thaddeus Bentz, and Amy Margolis was able to plea to one misdemeanor. You guys saved my life!!”

  • 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.”

  • 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.”

  • 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.”
