This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Honorable attorney that inspires trust and produces results.
Mr. Baxter has handled diverse personal and corporate legal work for me over a number of years. He is a rare blend of hard to find attorney attributes; he is honorable, impeccably reliable and decorous while executing sharp legal strategies that are both aggressive and effective. He has substantial, broad experience and is a long established member of the legal community, both of which are utilized to his client's benefit. In short, he has earned my confidence with hard work, dedication to my interest and with fair, detailed billing.

He has been and continues to be a trusted and very competent part of what it takes to make our business successful.
