      I was dealing with some pretty heavy stuff legally when I reached out to Mr. Bauer. I was looking at doing serious jail time and leaving my family to struggle without … read more me. After six months of anxiety and stress, I can say I was lucky and blessed to have him as my attorney. He fought hard for me and I walked out of court today a free man. The way I see it he saved my family years of hardship without me and gave me a second chance at life. Words can’t express the gratitude I feel toward Mr. Bauer and I hope one day to be in a position where I can give back to him as much as he has given us. I recommend him highly to anyone who is in a tough position and needs help like I did. Thank you Mr. Bauer 🙏

      Where should I start? Mr.Bauer was very personable, responded quickly, and with very knowledgeable information, and answers. Mr. Bauer was always honest with me … read more about my case, and always steered me in the right directions. Mr. Bauer also fought tooth and nails for me and went over and beyond to help grant a judgement that’s fits. Mr. Ernest is by far the best lawyer on the Northshore. There should be a Six Star Rating!
