Very helpful!
Renee, and her team, were extremely helpful with my divorce proceedings. From the initial consultation, where Renee listened and gave great advice, through the day in court, it was super easy. I would highly recommend Renee Bauer Law Firm.

Exceptional!
Renee was exceptional. She and her staff made me feel like I was their only client throughout my divorce proceedings. Everyone in the office was incredibly responsive to my inquiries and remarkably quick in keeping me up to date with any developments in my case. Renee was truly an advocate for my best interests and helped me finalize my divorce in as judicious a manner as possible. I could not have asked for a better attorney!

I couldn't be happier that I hired renee to help me through what turned out to be a difficult divorce. Not only was she and her whole team were always responsive, but they were also understanding and supportive. Renee is an excellent lawyer who really knows her stuff. She is on top of everything and always had my and my kids best interest at heart. I can't thank her enough for helping me through this difficult time in my life.

Complicated Case
I am still in the process of a complicated divorce and am so happy I went with Renee. The whole office is amazing. She truly does care and has been there every step of the way fighting for my needs as well as my children needs. I truly cannot put into words how grateful we are that she is representing us. I know we are in the best hands and truly her to stand up and fight for our rights.

Excellent representation
I hired Renee to represent me in my recent divorce. Renee and her staff were extremely patient and compassionate when answering my questions regarding every step of the process. Every email and question were answered in a timely manner, usually within 30 minutes, even outside of regular office hours. Leslie's patience and guidance in regard to the financial paperwork was invaluable, Shannon is so professional and thorough with the paperwork aspect, I felt secure that all details were being handled. A very trying situation was handled with care and courtesy, to a satisfactory end. I have, and would continue to recommend Renee and her team.

Brilliant and caring lawyer
I could not be happier with Renee Bauer as my divorce attorney. Attorney Bauer expertly guided me through my divorce and made the process as smooth as possible. Renee is a strategic thinker who offers practical and helpful advice and solutions. Her staff members also reflect these attributes as well and are also highly competent and a pleasure to work with. For these reasons and many others, I highly recommend Attorney Bauer and her team.

Extremely satisfied
I can't say enough regarding Renee and her entire staff. She handled my situation with aggression when it needed it and handled me with care when I needed it. She will explain exactly what's happening and what your options are. When you are in a situation that you just can't believe is happening she will be there for you. I would recommend this law firm to my own family. Anyone who says she can be intimidated hasn't seen her in action!!!!!

Excellent experience
I had many worries over a legal issue that I was presented with. Renee was able to address my worries with the first consultation. She made my court experience more bareable than I ever could have imagined. If I ever happen to be presented with another issue in the future, she is definitely my first choice!

Competent, fast and always available
I had a delicate case of separation and minor relocation from USA to Europe to do in less time possible; Mrs Bauer and all her staff made an excellent job to find the best way for me and my child to relocate giving me advices and protecting our rights. They also helped me in no time to get the child support once me and my baby were already abroad.

Uncontested Divorce
In March of 2016 I had a consultation with Attorney McGrath - an associate of Attorney Bauer. Within 10 minutes I knew that I was going to hire her to handle my uncontested divorce. She provided me with information on new laws that would waive the 90-day waiting period (a relief) and also assuaged concerns I had about potential financial support my spouse could petition for and be awarded. The entire staff was professional and extremely responsive with all paperwork that was required (a lot). It was an emotional time and Attorneys McGrath and Bauer made it less painful by being positive and taking care of everything. No missed steps anywhere along the way and they provide very accurate invoicing - everything is very transparent. They were even able to get a court date within a week of having all paperwork and agreements signed which was a GIFT to not have to drag it out for weeks and weeks. Would highly recommend.

Great lawyer. Great service.
While deployed to Afghanistan, I was going through a divorce and Renee and her staff were amazing. They went out of their way to help me even with the time difference and were friendly and were able to get paperwork and updates to me in a timely manner. I Would recommend Renee and her staff to anyone needing legal assistance.

Couldn't have had a better experience.
I was initially very hesitant to consult a lawyer because the process and language was all very foreign to me. From the minute I met Renee I felt completely comfortable and I knew she would do everything she could to represent me in my divorce case. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a very personal and professional experience.

Amazing. Would recommend Bauer Law Group to everyone.
Renee helped me through the horrendous process of divorce. I recently divorced my husband of 10 years and have two small children. Renee really helped me understand how to make our new family dynamic work with my children's best interests in mind. Thank you to Renee and her whole staff for always keeping me informed and being incredibly supportive. I truly can't express my gratitude enough. I would recommend anyone going through divorce or child custody issues to work with the Bauer Law Group. This firm will work tirelessly for their clients and will be very upfront and honest about your options.

Highly recommended attorney
Attorney Bauer helped me through the most painful time in my life and I'm so grateful for her commitment to my case. She was compassionate, understanding and listened to me when I needed to vent. Attorney Bauer and her awesome staff were always reachable, responsive and reassuring throughout the process. What could have been an absolute nightmare for my children and me was handled swiftly, fairly and with dignity. I can't thank her enough!

If you want the best, retain Attorney Bauer
Attorney Bauer is not only knowledgeable in family law but she personally cares about her clients and how they are impacted by the legal system. I found her to be smart and compassionate. Hiring her was the smartest thing I did and my family is very grateful. Thank you Renee for everything!

| Consulted Attorney
Does not care
I was very specific about my situation, financially. We spoke several times to the firm over the phone and were placed on hold so they could double check information. I was telling them since they do not offer a free consult I need to verify this info ahead of time, and we were told we were good to go. At the very end of my paid consult I was told that info was not correct and it was much higher. We contacted Renee who clearly did not care about any of it and just kept repeating policy, as if that makes a difference now when we were told otherwise.

Response from Renee Bauer April 20, 2018
I am sorry that you misunderstood how our office procedure works. When we make an appointment for a consultation, we cannot quote a retainer as everyone's case is unique and requires different needs. Once one of our attorneys meet with a potential client, we can better assess the fees. Our records show that our attorney spent well over an hour with you discussing your case and our consultation fee was based on that time. I wish you all the best in your legal matter.
