Client Reviews & Testimonials

  • In the end, all criminal charges were dropped.

    “I was referred to Casey from another attorney for my criminal charge of Vehicular Assault of a Pedestrian and Reckless Driving. Casey saw me right away and knew how to handle the case. Since Casey used to work for the District Attorney's office he knew the opposing attorney, their style, and how to direct the case. In the end, all criminal charges were dropped. Thank you Casey!”

  • He rules!

    “Mr. Baxter was really supportive and knowledgeable of our unique situation. He was well-prepared and totally approachable too. He's been available with any and all questions that we've had since he helped us. He was straightforward and didn't give us any BS. ”

  • 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.”

  • 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!”

  • 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. ”
