I was arrested for DUII, Reckless Driving and Failure to Perform Duties of a Licensed Driver. This was my first experience with any serious criminal justice system. Mr. Baxter was assigned as my public defended. Throughout the process he was nearly impossible to get in contact with. Our first and only meeting was 10 minutes prior to my court date. Then, my name was called to the stand; Mr. Baxter was not in the room, but defending another client in another room and I was told by the clerk to wait. Admirable case load, distasteful departure. His demeanor was friendly and his legal guidance was sound, however. With future pending court dates, I found Mr. Baxter again unresponsive, with time-sensitive calls and e-mails going virtually ignored for weeks. Again, however, he eventually delivered results. Mr. Baxter was a helpful and respectful attorney, but a very difficult person to work with.
