  • Stephen Robert Baxley

    Nicole and I met in law school. Even then I knew she would make a great name for herself but her skill, natural ability to try cases, and legal creativity have surpassed what I could have expected. She is truly a national player in the criminal defense world and I endorse her with no hesitation.
