Review Maureen Baldwin
  • Excellent, compassionate lawyer

    Posted by Tim

    I came to Maureen after being charged with driving under the influence of drugs from a motorcycle accident. From the moment I spoke to her about my case, I knew I wanted her to defend me. Although she did not promise any particular outcome, she was reassuring and alleviated a lot of the stress and anxiety I was dealing with. Communication with Maureen was easy; she is immediately responsive with text messages and available same-day I wanted to drop by her office to talk, even though I'm sure she has a very busy schedule. She explained how the entire process works and was there to represent me for every court date.
    Maureen seems to have a great relationship with the Santa Clara district attorneys and judges, and was able to get my misdemeanor DUI drugs charge reduced to a much less serious infraction charge of driving too fast for road conditions. There was a point during the process where although they agreed that I wasn't driving under the influence, the DA still wanted to charge me with misdemeanor speeding. She was able to reason with them and I was thankfully never charged with that.
    I hope to never have to use Maureen again, but would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone that finds themselves in a bad situation, like I did.

    I hired Maureen after I got my first DUI (.09 BAC). I was very nervous and anxious since I have never been in trouble with the law (even as a teen). She thoroughly explained the court proceedings and explained to me in details on what to expect during court arraignment, possible outcome, etc. She was very honest and didn't make any false promises. She is extremely a hard working, experienced attorney who is very familiar with Santa Clara County court system. At the end, she was able to negotiate my charges down to a reduced charge of (wet) reckless driving. This outcome wouldn't have been possible without her assistance! First of all, don't make the same mistake like I made by drinking and driving...because you will eventually get caught!
    Use taxi, Uber, or get a motel! But god forbid if you are dumb enough to get a DUI then I highly recommend her services. She will work hard for you and her prices are very reasonable!

    Maureen is a fabulous attorney she was able to get the charges dropped on my domestic violence case. She was well worth the money considering a felony on my record would have ruined my life and destroyed my career. I could not have been happier with her results. She was always available by phone or appointment which made me feel secure. If you are reading this message hire her she is the best!

    Maureen is simply wonderful. Awhile ago, someone falsely accused me of something and when that happened, I was shocked, confused, and didn't know what to do. I then consulted Maureen and knew that she was the person to handle my case. She is not only intelligent and thorough, but she is very personable and easy to work with. A very experienced, tenacious attorney, she knows the ins and outs of the DA's office and how to work with them. She cares very much about her clients and does not give false promises. I can recommend her without hesitation!

    My wife was arrested in Las Vegas, Nevada for a legal matter that was filed against her in California. She was being held in Las Vegas awaiting California to extradite her. I hired Maureen Baldwin to help us with the case and from day one she gathered all the details and got in touch with the DA in California. She also worked with our attorney in Las Vegas and my wife was released in 3days from Las Vegas jail to go to California to answer the charges, normally she would've been held 30days till California would come to get her. Maureen was prefessional, attentive, and provided step by step guidance. We were lucky to have her handle the case. Later on, she worked out a deal with the DA and they dismissed all the charges. I highly recommend Maureen Baldwin, she is an excellent Attorney.

  • Great Attorney- Goes Above and Beyond

    I searched for several attorneys to help me with my Domestic Violence/Restraining order violation, but each quoted me with extreme prices and very limited direction in terms of their plan of action. I was lucky enough to find Ms. Baldwin and was immediately knew she was the right person for my case. She is not only a great lawyer, but also a great person and cares dearly about her cases/clients. She went above and beyond to help me get my case cleared/dismissed altogether. You can be sure Ms Baldwin will be fair with her prices and will do everything in her power to help you get through your case as she did for me. Highly recommend her as she is highly experienced, very talented, and overall a congenial person to work with.

    I feel so lucky that I found Mrs. Maureen Baldwin at the critical time. I retained her as my criminal attorney for a misdemeanor charge, and she met all aspects of my expectations.

    At first, as an attorney, she is so powerful. I fired my previous lazy attorney, after he spent more than two months going back and forth but without making any progress, and retained Maureen at the critical time. She is resourceful on how to work with the DA, and she knows when to take actions and when to step back. Only after two weeks that she took over my case, she was able to got my case dismissed!! She is definitely strong in her profession, and she came up with a clever and clean point to deal with the charge, so that the DA had to dismiss my case.

    Secondly, she is always responsive. She answers my every call and replies my every email on time in terms of minutes. I cannot believe how a successful and busy lawyer like her can manage to be so attentive as she does. She even replied my after-hour emails when I needed updates from her.

    At last, but not least important, she is compassionate. She understand my needs and how important things mean to me. She talked directly to the DA that the charge on me was stupid, and asked how would the DA feel to have my case go to trial.

    I don't know what else I can expect from an attorney, let alone her rate is very competitive. She is well worth the money but also my sincere respect.

    Mrs. Maureen is a great lawyer that would be there for you when you need her. I had hired her from the beginning when my case started and when it was time for me to get of probation i had went back to her to help me with that. She got everything taken care of in a timely manner and was very professional. She has even answered question and concerns non related to my case. If you need a attorney and she does cases that you are in trouble for i would highly recommend her as your lawyer.

    Maureen did an excellent job helping me out of a very frustrating situation. I was serving a 3-year probation for an assault charge, and she was able to get me off probation early the day I graduated college, just in time for my upcoming wedding and honeymoon. Not only did she get me off probation early, she got my charges reduced to a misdemeanor and made me feel like I could go on with my life with a much cleaner slate. Maureen didn't have an easy job helping me, but she worked very hard, and she doesn't back down from resistance in the courtroom.
