Small business counsel
Stacy provides excellent guidance for a small business. She researched our business and goals to help guide us and continues to make recommendations as we grow. Stacy cares about the welfare of her clients which what I think makes her so successful.

Legal Council and Business Advisor
As a new entrepreneur, I was looking for a lawyer who had experience with small businesses. From day one, Stacy helped me to get all our corporate documents in place and define a corporate governance policy. Since the start of our business, Stacy has been indispensable with all things legal in our business to the point I asked her to join my advisory board where she advises me on all matters of business.

Review of Stacy L. Bauer
I had engaged Stacy to assist me on a Bankruptcy matter. She quickly got up to speed on the legal issues and was a great help in developing a strategy to address the issues at hand (Preference Payments). Based on her tenacious negotiating skills I assigned and additional responsibility to her in negotiating settlements with the vendors that received preferences. Stacy has the ability to adapt to the situation and become very productive and focused on what the important points are and allow the smaller inconsequential items to be addressed at a later date if at all. She is a real pleasure to work with.

Dare2Care - Unite Against Bullying
I've known Stacy Bauer for many years personally and knew of her professional reputation as a very trustworthy, confidential and knowledgeable lawyer. In 2011 when I decided to start my non-profit, Dare2Care - Unite Against Bullying, there was only one person I was turning to for help & support. Since our initial meeting Stacy took control on filing our 501(c)(3), trade marking of our logo & name along with reaching out to other parties that have infringed upon our trade mark. Stacy sits on our Board of Directors and she is the only person I would turn to for our legal matters. If she isn't well versed on a subject, she finds the proper people to assist and takes the time to learn that particular material as well so she remains well versed in that aspect of the law. Stacy only has your best interest at hand and she is not afraid to speak up when she believes something isn't right and works tirelessly to ensure your rights and needs are well protected. You can feel confident speaking with her on any subject. She does not judge the situation, but how to find the end to every situation that works best in your favor and is there with you each step of the way. If you need the best, then I urge you to please contact Stacy Bauer.

First rate Business Attorney
We had been one of those companies who really hadn't thought we needed Agreements or Contracts - we had always done business on our word and integrity. What that got us was 20+ years of certain clients who didn't always respect or recognize boundaries. We needed to clearly establish Client and Scope of Work Policies - it was time to establish those boundaries, as well as raise rates. I had met Stacy through a networking group and loved her passion, knowledge and humor - she knows how to relate to people! I felt comfortable enough to decide to have her work on this project. She listened to our goals and objectives for this project. She asked questions to make sure she understood what we were saying and made sure she had clarification of any nebulous details. She brought up additional points of consideration. She graciously allowed our third-year law student daughter to observe the process of putting the document together. She put the document into easy-to-read, easy-to-understand format. We ended up with a document which was so well written that other attorney clients of ours called to say how well-written it was. Another client called to say it was the best rate increase letter they had ever seen. Our clients now know where the boundaries are - and they will pay more if they need after-hours work. Needless to say, we have learned the value of having a legal budget within our company. She's also in process of more work for our company. Way to go Stacy!

Legal document review and creation
Stacy Bauer is a wonderful find in the veritable sea of legal practitioners. She is intelligent, efficient, erudite, personable, witty, and is capable of understanding complex technical terms and making them accessible to our clients. She was able to perform the tasks we asked of her quickly and within budget. I would not hesitate to recommend her or her firm to anyone seeking legal assistance.
