Client Reviews & Testimonials

  • 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!”

  • 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.”

  • 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.”

  • Guilty or not, he'll get you the best deal he can

    “My case was unique. Facing my second revoke, with only two people showing up for support, Casey managed to help me out of a bind. It took some minor nit picking, but that's all it takes. He will also make sure you understand everything so that you're not left feeling naive or played by the system. Guilty or not, he'll get you the best deal he can, if you're not completely acquitted of your charges. ”
