Heather pursued all avenues to have my charge of a DUI reduced to Reckless, from questioning the integrity and honesty of the arresting officer, the validly of the field sobriety tests, to the evaluation of my medical history and the resulting negative effects of a DUI conviction on my medical well-being. Heather was successful in her pursuit of a reduced charge of Reckless Driving. I feel Heather could be better versed in the workings of MVD Administrative Law as it pertains to DUI charges.
Heather is an awesome attorney. She represented me in 2 recent court cases which ended in favorable results. From our very first meeting I felt comfortable entrusting her with my defense. Great job and thank you Heather!
We hired Heather Baker recently for a family matter involving physical and mental abuse, and harassment. At our first meeting she was very kind and compassionate and we immediately felt comfortable with her. Throughout the process she was in good communication with us as to how things were going and what to expect in the court room.
She did an excellent job presenting our case and was very professional and confident. We are thankful that this resulted in obtaining the Order of Protection that we needed, one that was previously dismissed at an earlier court date, due to evidence that could not be admitted.
With Heather’s approach to presenting the needed evidence, the outcome was clear. She did a super job and if we need an attorney in the future we would not hesitate to work with her again.
She helped me through my divorce and was extremely thorough and worked hard to get me what I needed.
Arizona DUI laws are extreme and per the instructors in the required classes I took it is EXTREMELY rare to get out of a DUI. Heather got mine reduced to Reckless Driving which means she was well worth the expense of an attorney. Laws change all the time in Arizona on this issue and the courts and the MVD work separately so there is much confusion. I heard so many horror stories from persons in my classes.
Heather Baker was assigned to me as a PD. I had hired an attorney on a criminal matter regarding my ex. I used his credit card to purchase a ticket for our daughter to fly back to our former home to visit her grandparents. He had me charged with ID theft although I had paid the credit card off less than 20 days after I charged it. Well, when my attorney suggested lying (which I knew I could win the case b/c my ex was a proven liar in court) and/or seducing him to drop the charges, I knew I needed a different attorney and entrusted Ms. Baker as my public defender. During my case, she was passionate, caring, determined to do something fair for everyone involved and to ensure that I would not lose my teaching certificate as a result of the action. She communicated with me and was terrific. I put all trust in her and I came out accepting my fault, but as a misdemeanor and thus, no actions toward my career resulted from this (other than losing my initial 65K paying job).
