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!”

  • All around a FANTASTIC attorney!!!!

    “I would recommend Casey to anyone needing a criminal defense attorney. Casey has fought on my behalf in the Deschutes County court system for almost a year now. He was granted to me as my public defender. I've never seen an attorney work harder for a client. He has been compassionate and supportive...from day one he explained each facet of my case to me in terms I could understand, and walked me through each step of the legal process of my case. Because of Casey's experience and hard work, I was able to present the state with positive proof of my own progress and get two of my charges dismissed and my original charge continued on a conditional discharge. Casey helped me show the state that I had worked very hard to change my life and lifestyle...and he went above and beyond to make sure I was given credit for all of my hard work. All around a FANTASTIC attorney!!!!”

  • 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.”

    “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 :)”
