Dakota D Recommends Ernest Bauer

Mr. Bauer is definitely the best attorney in the St. Tammany area. First of all, he’s very understanding and flexible with financial situations. Secondly, you can tell just from interacting with him that he’s genuinely kind and cares about getting what’s best for his clients, unlike other attorneys who look for the easiest route possible while taking your money. Lastly, he’s very punctual and is always quick to respond to phone calls and questions. If you want proper representation then I would very much recommend Mr. Bauer.

Mr. Bauer always treated me with respect and compassion even when I didn’t have it for myself. He will tell you like it is and I believe he truly cares about getting the best outcome for his clients. He is extremely fair and will work with you on payments, although his cost is more then reasonable. I will always recommend him to anyone.

Ernest J Bauer gave me a wonderful experience as a lawyer helping regular people like you and me! He is awesome to work with and very considerable of how you can make payments to him as a lawyer fee still having to deal with your regular bills in life. He was very comforting to know that he was in my corner and very informative of the process to me step by step all the way to the very end of my court case! There is no other lawyer that I would have thanked the Lord for finding him to defend me in court. Ernest is one of the most professional lawyers I have ever had the privilege to know in a bad time. I would highly recommend that if you had a reason for a lawyer it would be the best money you ever spent for your defense! For the circumstances that I was in I came out with his help in an unbelievable verdict for my case. As soon as you talk to him you will feel comfortable knowing the way he presents himself he really is honest to you about your case and is going to do his best to get the best outcome in court for you. Thank you earnest for helping me!
