Stop and Review!
Ms.Baier saved my life, my family and I are very appreciative of the detailed work and thought out processes that she combatted to help my case be understood correctly. My case was very complicated and lengthy. Probably to add very rare. I was looking at probably a Dishonored discharge from the military, family out on the street and me serving time. So of you are looking for a lawyer keep looking, but if your looking for a damn good attorney that will be thorough and detailed then pick Ms.Baier. Thank you Ma'am
