I met Mistie Bauscher in March 2013. My daughter and I were arrested for DUI and MIC. Mistie not only gave me an excellent fee that I could live with, she also worked with me and gave me a reasonable amount of time to come up with the money to pay her. Mistie immediately went to work, she kept me informed of every court date whether I needed to be there or not she always let me know the outcome in a very timely manner. For my daughter she was able to have her case dismissed, it was completely resolved without my daughter ever having to go to court due to being away at school.

Without Mistie’s professionalism, respect and knowledge I don’t think it would have turned out as wonderful as it did. As for Myself, Mistie advised and guided me through this very scary process. I followed her every lead I did exactly what she asked me to do and my case was dismissed as well in a timely manner.

There was never a moment while Mistie was representing me that I didn’t feel like my questions went unanswered she was always available to calm my nerves and offer inspiring advice. From that day forward Mistie has been available anytime, she has given me very productive referrals of other attorneys and will forever hold a special place in my heart. She goes above and beyond for her clients, her work ethic and integrity are impeccable.

I am so happy and thankful for finding and hiring Mistie. She did not make me feel ashamed of why I needed her but was very personable, professional and easy to confide in. I have since then referred her to others in which they also had amazing, successful experiences. Look no further, she is the lawyer to call!!!

Hey Mistie Bauscher just want to tell you thank you very much for being a very good attorney, the best I have ever had.  Also, the communication we had about the case was awesome.  The way things turned out for me going to court was excellent.  You’re a very hard working attorney and I’m very satisfied.  You are a five star so I’m going to let everybody know.

I met Mistie December of 2015. Unfortunately I found myself in need of an attorney due to a DUI, 2nd offense.. From the get go she told me exactly what was going to happen and by the time I was sentenced….well she hit the nail right on the head. I find Misty to be very knowledgeable, well respected, and professional. She has very good rapport with the many different people she deals with day in and day out. Mistie is friendly and very approachable. Mistie keeps you very well informed. I did everything I was supposed to do and everything Mistie recommended. Due to her recommendations, the outcome of my sentencing was not as bad as it could have been. I was and am quite happy with the outcome. It went well. Thank You Mistie!
The attorney fees were reasonable and a payment plan was offered. If you ever find yourself in need of an Attorney, I would highly recommend Mistie Bauscher.

My daughter and I worked with Mistie Bauscher for over a year , with charges that continued to compound over an original charge of DUI, of an adult under 21. This can be a very scary place to be! Without Mistie’s guidance and calm assurance, we could never have made it through the fire! We had many court appearances, and my daughter had many obstacles to go through. We had our ups and downs along the way, but Mistie was always there with us!  We are almost at the end of our legal journey, there is light at the end of the long tunnel! And we would not have made it with out Mistie’s hard legal work!  All our thanks to Mistie Bauscher of Briggs and Bauscher for all your help! Our family will be for ever grateful.
