"In July of 2016 I hired Ms. Baxter to defend my son who was facing multiple charges after stopping his bipolar medication. She was able to get several of the charges dropped so that he’s able to get the help he needed rather than go to jail to become another statistic. I will always be grateful for the time and care Ms. Baxter showed both myself and my son during this terrifying time. Laura B"

My family and I hired Judith Baxter in August of 2015 to assist with an incident involving my younger sister. Judith answered our phone call and immediately scheduled an appointment to meet with us that same week! She was very knowledgeable and informative throughout the entire process. We felt very comfortable and safe while working with her.

She prepared us very well for what was going to happen and what could happen. She explained how the interviewer would behave and what type of questions she could possibly ask our family. We never felt pressured while working with her and she showed commitment in her work. I have deep admiration for the work Judith does and the dedication she has to her field of work. Judith is very precise, organized, and professional all while being kind and warmhearted with whom she is working with.

She is as amazing as they can get!​
