Client Reviews & Testimonials

  • Highest sense of urgency

    “I had a rather complicated case. Multiple states involved and multiple scenarios and issues that arose daily. I found Casey to extremely honest and transparent. I felt he gave me the most specific information he could. I never felt he was dragging or putting my case behind other cases. He gave me information in complete transparency and never said what he thought sounded good to me. He wasn't afraid of the tough conversations. I would highly recommend this lawyer and this firm if you need complete transparency and accurate information. His office staff consist of incredible work ethic and professionalism. They are always available and provide precise appointments and feedback if any is available. I have had a great experience and couldn't be happier with the result of my case as well as the journey to attain that result. Best I have ever used.”

  • 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.”

  • 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.”

  • 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!”

  • 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!!!!”
