Client Reviews & Testimonials

  • Casey is an awesome attorney.

    “He is very intelligent and knows how to get great results. He was there me and my wife during a very scary time when we really needed someone in our corner. He was always there to answer any questions we had and was able to get our legal matters settled with great results. We would have been a sinking ship without Casey!”

  • 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!”

  • The extra mileThe extra mileThe extra mileThe extra mile

    “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 :)”
