Maureen Baldwin Attorney Testimonials
The following are Maureen Baldwin Attorney Testimonials .
I was referred to Maureen by someone I know who has done an extensive research. Even then i did my own and was convinced that Maureen is the right person to go to. And I was right. She sat down with me for more than an hour the first time, even before I made the decision to hire her services. Maureen was detailed and told me everything I needed to know and what to do and even made some phone calls for me right then. I eventually hired Maureen to fight for me and she eventually got my case dropped and rejected by the DA’s office! She answers my emails diligently and promptly and gave me great advice every step of the way. Her rates are very reasonable and a true lawyer by your side!!
Maureen is a fantastic lawyer . She just freed an innocent man on a 995 Motion simultaneously performing at full force in a jury trial nearby.
Ms Baldwin is a great attorney. She is compassionate and caring. She helped to turn an unjust arrest into justice. She believed me when others doubted me she is awesome.
Maureen has helped my husband from a DV case. She has been very supportive and she took time to answer all our concerns. Since there were immigration complications, she came along with us to an immigration lawyer and discussed all complications for each possible outcome. Maureen tried hard from beginning to stop the case getting filed. she kept on working on it until the case was dismissed.
She is not like the other attorneys who look at you as money making machine. She is a good human of values.
I was accused of domestic violence. Maureen Baldwin was instrumental in getting the charges rejected (which means a case never got filed). Maureen was down to earth, she was aggressive when necessary but never came across as pushy , she knew when to be persistent and when to lay low. All of her years of experience paid off and she was an excellent investment and truly has your best interest at heart! I am very appreciative of her help and highly recommend her if you are in a legal situation.
I talked to three lawyers for my domestic violence case. I didnt pick lawyers who claimed to be the king/queen in the court room, who had connection with DA but Maureen, who was at the moment having a bad cold, sneezing constantly but still went into all the details of my situation taking detailed notes. That was one of the best decision I ever made in my life. Maureen worked out miracle – DA rejected the case completely and there was NO charge filed on me! Due to a prior misdemeanor change on my record 5 years ago, its deemed impossible for such an outcome, while bad consequences could lead to my immigration status denial, my loss of child custody, or at the minimum my immobility in the next couple years to change job in the high tech industry.
To me Maureen is a very cool lawyer:) She may not claim all the credits but I realize how she smartly collected new evidence, tuned new development of the situation in my favor, and gave me truly valuable advise not limited to the criminal case, but the family custody case I was also dealing with in the mean time. Not to mention what other reviewers have said about Maureen’s prompt response to your email, her keenness on details, her loads of experience and her great reputation with her clients, with DA and the courtrooms.
Though it was the worst drama in my life, I feel so lucky I found and chose Maureen as my lawyer.
Dear some one in need,
About 2 months ago I ended up in a situation of petty theft case. It was the moment of my life where I felt so lost and shameful.
I got caught with the police and was cited to go to court and was so petrified.
I didn’t know what to do and I desperately
needed a lawyer. I researched and called few
lawyers, but didn’t feel comfortable with any.
Couple of lawyers hear the worriness in you and tried to take advantage and say things to make you more intimidated.
Some knew your case was standard and tried to charged you the maximum knowing it didn’t need that much work. Some promised you a lot and seem so superficial.
Finally, I came across Maureen Baldwin.
That afternoon in my car was when I tried to call Maureen. The 1st moment I briefly told
M my situation, she spent her time talking to me and explaining the whole situation to me
as though she took care of it without asking anything in return. She didn’t even bothered
quoting the fees. She gives you what is her knowledge about your situation and if
you feel you need further care from M, she was willing to help you. But she doesn’t even temped, forced, or rushed you into picking her. You just feel naturally in your conscience that she is the one!
She takes care of you each step that you need and request fee up to whatever point she assisted you.
She doesn’t make you pay for any extras that
she didn’t work for you. Unlike the other lawyers, just blab out one huge fee and promised you that they’ll do this and get this and that accomplished without starting anything for you yet.
Throughout my process with Maureen,
I get personal contact from M every day and even within the hours of response. M contacted me back and forth by emails and text constantly. I don’t ever have to talk to
any receptionist or assistance at all.
It’s you and M one on one all the time.
All the reviews about Maureen are so TRUE.
There are plenty of criminal lawyers out there… but you are lucky if you have chosen one that you trust and one that is not there just for the Money.
For the rest of this life, I don’t hope i ever
have to need a criminal lawyer again.
But I would want someone whos is like me…
did a horrible dumb mistake and need a good lawyer, look for Maureen Baldwin,
you will feel so much BETTER!
My case got dismissed and went as planned.
Very helpful thank you
I was charged with a theft with several priors. Because I had strikes on my record, the district attorney offered 4 years. When Maureen Baldwin took over my case, she got the judge to release me from jail so I could do some programs that I was doing to better myself. She requested some discovery that the DA was unable to produce. As a result, she got me a misdemeanor with 45 days on weekend work. Real review, Name changed….
I contacted Ms. Baldwin the way many of you will, based on her reviews from various search engines. Upon meeting her I gave her the details of what I thought was an insurmountable case. She reassured me that what needed to be done would take time but could be done. She explained the law to me with great clarity and reassured me that this horrible chapter in my life could finally be over. We negotiated her fees which I found to be very reasonable….I left her office with instructions of what I needed to do and I did what she asked of me. My case was a 2 stage litigation process. She handled the first stage immediately. I knew I had hired the right attorney. My expectations were exceeded when I learned that she had my original conviction dismissed rather than reduced. She was successful in stage 2 of my case.Here is where my review really needs your attention. My attorney for the original case was twice as expensive as Ms Baldwin – 13 years prior! Talking to him took an act of Congress. He acted like him taking my case was an extreme inconvenience but martyred himself as he was doing it as a favor.Ms. Baldwin ALWAYS returned my calls promptly, within hours not days. When I couldn’t be reached she sent me emails or text messages updating me with new information as it became available.If you are in need of an attorney I highly recommend Ms. Baldwin. She knows the law and has decades of experience. The smartest decision I ever made was to retain her services…Because of Ms. Baldwin, I can pursue goals in life that I thought were impossible before.
Maureen Baldwin was there for me in my time of need. I was charged with a DV offense and throughout the ordeal, she was the rock on which I could lean on in my time of stress and duress. Without her, I think I would have suffered a nervous breakdown. She helped me understand the whole process and patiently worked with me over innumerable emails and phone calls. She is a caring and committed professional who provides the most objective and considered counsel to her clients. Additionally, she is extremely knowledgeable about the workings of the legal system and is well connected to many of the prosecutorial staff in the Santa Clara County courts thus enabling her to advance the interests of her client in a more effective manner. She was able to reduce the charges from DV to a Disturbance of Peace misd without probation and helped me get a new lease of life. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a committed, caring and responsive lawyer during their time of need
After an extensive research I found Maureen, and based on her reviews I called her to set up a free consultation. It is one of the best decisions I have ever made.She is honest, real, and will tell you exactly how things are.

She is also well respected among the District Attorneys office.Maureen was always available for questions I had, as well as willing to spent countless hours going over every detail of my case.At the end, after a hard fought battle, she was able to dismiss my felony charge.

Ms Baldwin.Is an wonderful attorney that represented me on unique domestic violence case which carried a strike and a possible 7 years behind bars. She always kept me well informed and promptly returned my phone calls and emails. She was always honest and realistic with me when concerning possible outcomes. She may seem sometimes quiet and meek for a criminal lawyer but she is a shark in the courtroom. Exactly the type of Lawyer that one would want representing them. and should fear going up against. I cant thank her enough for all she has done and would definitely recommend her to anyone seeking a lawyer with competence and knowledge of the law. she makes you feel like a close friend from the day you meet her.

I was devastated by my arrest, but fortunately my daughter did a good job of finding the right lawyer. Maureen made me feel better right away. I could tell that she would work as hard as possible to get me the best possible result. She kept me informed, was always on time for court dates, and used her negotiating skills to keep me out of jail. She really cares about her clients and is completely honest. She was also always on the lookout for anything that would help me and made sure that the court did the right things. Her fee was very reasonable. In fact, I offered to pay her more to look into something, and she just laughed. “What? You don’t think you paid me enough?”. I really didn’t.
Maureen gave us her time and energy always she was very attentive and caring as well. She went out of her way to listen and help us with our problems, she was excellent. We highly recommend her to anyone who needs legal assistance.
I contacted Maureen Baldwin to ask her about an arrest that my friend had just gone through. He couldn’t call her himself. She was very nice and answered my questions without one time asking me for any money. She got him out of jail and got his case dismissed. Very good lawyer…
I was charged with sexually molesting my step-daughter years ago. I was innocent and wanted to fight all the charges. Unfortunately, I was convicted the first time, but a court-appointed appellate lawyer got my case reversed on appeal because I was not given a fair trial the first time. The District Attorney decided to re-try my case. Fortunately, Maureen Baldwin was my lawyer this time. A lot of investigation as well as pretrial motions were required. There were very serious immigration issues in addition to the criminal case. As a result of the hard work of my attorney as well as the appellate attorney before her, the prosecution dismissed the case. Ms. Baldwin spent time I needed in explaining my options, both to me and to my family. I was very happy with her representation.
My son was arrested for a felony assault. We were very upset and confused. Luckily someone who is a friend recommended Maureen Baldwin. She was very knowledgeable and insightful, and was always available to my son and to us regarding the tough decisions that needed to be made. This was a difficult time for all of us and I don’t know how we could have got thru the case without her assistance.
Maureen Baldwin represented me in a DUI case where the officer pulled me over next to a party and gave me a breathalyzer. I was arrested and was facing criminal charges. Ms. Baldwin listened to what my friends and I said had occurred on the roadside and informed me that she did not believe there was sufficient probable cause for the officer to pull me over. The DA disagreed and we had a hearing in court with the officer and my witness on the stand. After the hearing, the judge agreed with Ms. Baldwin and dismissed the case. I am very happy I worked with Maureen. Anon—San Jose
She is truly a best lawyer. I am really amazed the way she stays on top of your case and is always reachable. I am living in US on work visa and I was struck outside US because of a conviction I had couple of years back. Even I was in different time zone, she really managed my case well, coordinated with my immigration lawyer, got my conviction dismissed and help me come back to my life. I hadn’t even completed my probation yet but she still managed to get my probation terminated and get my case dismissed, that was really amazing. I highly recommend her.
I was accused of domestic violence. I realized that I need the most competitive lawyer for my DV case and I found this fantastic lawyer through extensive research and interviews among +20 law firms .She had a clear strategy to lead the best result. As everybody says, she is smart, knowledgeable and best strategy to win. She kept me informed all the times by either phone call or emails on every step of process. She retuned all my calls and emails immediately and fight for my rights, and finally my case got dismissed. I am sincerely grateful to Mrs. Baldwin and definitely recommend her as your lawyer.
I am really thankful to Maureen. She remembers you and your case even after years. She is really committed professional and helps you even after years. I would highly recommend her.
Maureen helped me fight and WIN TWO false allegations of Domestic Violence in two separate cities. She successfully was able to get me a positive result and I was very happy when she called to say that BOTH D.A.s dropped and dismissed all charges!!! This saved me a lot of money because if D.A.s would’ve filed charges, I would have had to pay costlier fees.
What I really liked about Maureen was that she’s such a great listener and she took ALL the time I needed to explain my case to her. I really felt heard and understood by her, not like the ‘other guys’ that I interviewed who only cared if I made enough money to pay them.
She spent 1hr with me on the phone and then another 2 hours in her office. I brought my witnesses and she even cared to interview them for their testimony. No pressure here at all.
She has A LOT of experience (over 30yrs in CA). Plus some people say it’s better to be represented by a woman when fighting a case against your wife. Her retainer fees are VERY competitive so I highly recommend you interview her.
I hired Maureen to defend me on domestic violence case. She listened, she then explained to me the possible outcomes and what I need to do, what she will do. The case played out as pretty much she explained, my case was dismissed.
For my son’s case, she was with us every step, not just a lawyer for us. In other hand, she was caring grandmother for him. In all time, she informed us our rights, what is going to happen, educated us and what is nest step. If you need a lawyer, she is the ONE and only ONE.
I was in need of an attorney concerning false allegations by my ex girl friend . I was lucky enough that I chose Maureen Furlong Baldwin as my lawyer to represent me in this matter. Mrs. Baldwin, listened to my statements of the facts, and contacted every witness that I provided her. She also made sure the District Attorney knew that she was not going to let the false allegations stand up in court and convict someone that in no way warranted lies.
She let me know that she believed in my case, and that she would do her upmost to make sure my ex girl friend would not get away with her lies. She was always there for me and she returned every one of my calls in very same day and kept me up to date on my case.
I just want to say that if anyone is in need of a Criminal Defense Attorney, I just hope they would at least contact Maureen Furlong Baldwin for consultation.
I felt supported and in good hands.
Maureen is hard-working, honest, and direct. She has been a very good advocate for me with the charges against me. From the start, Maureen was always very proactive throughout the whole process, even reaching out to the district attorney’s office prior to my first court appearance and trying to get my charges dropped. Maureen has a very strong knowledge of the law as well. This was very clear in her ability to have one of the charges against me dropped. Because of her persistent nature and ability to work and communicate with people, she was able to get the other charge against me reduced, saving me both time and money.
From the first time I met Maureen, she has always made me feel comfortable. Not having been in trouble with the law previously, I was very nervous about the whole process and what may happen to me. Maureen was very good at explaining both the legal process to me as well as advising me on my options. She was always willing to answer any questions I had and making sure that I understood what was happening.
In short, I am very glad I retained Maureen to represent me in my criminal case. I would highly recommend her and do not know where I would be without her.
Competent, thorough, intelligent attorney (who took my initial call at 10 p.m.!) She has almost 30 years of criminal law experience in San Jose and seems to know everyone at the courthouse. She got me an excellent result. I would recommend her to anyone.
Maureen is very responsive and understanding with the situation about my case (I would not specify, for privacy reasons). Respectively, she asked and collected the necessary documents to make my case go.
I recommended her to my friends and the community. A lawyer I can trust.
It was a bad day when i got arrested for a domestic violence case…it was really complicated because there were some police officer witness (who really misinterpreted the situation)…being a on a non immigrant visa it was a horrible condition for me…but luckily i met Maureen…she is really helpful, convincing, committed and responsible professional…I really appreciate the way she handled my case and saved me from being deported. She is extremely knowledgeable about all procedural details and court practices.
She was always very responsive and on top of the case.
I need help in a tight situation and she gave me clear, concise recommendation that allowed me to get more time for my situation. She was honest, helpful and really saved the day.
Maureen was by far the nicest attorney I have come across; she was also the cheapest! She really helped me understand my case and make the right decision.
I was charged with a petty theft which was causing problems with my immigration status. Maureen Baldwin was able to get the crime reduced to an infraction, although the amount was above the statutory grounds, this assisted with my imigration problem as well as avoided a misdemeanor on my record.
Through out the case she was very helpful. She did so much for me that I can not explain in words here… Few things that I liked about her:
1. She is a very good listner. She made me feel very comfortable by telling me upfront the best and worst scenarios.
2. She is prompt and very professional. She is always available thru her cell phone and calls back promptly. When I was traveling ovearseas she kept me posted thru emails. This is one quality that is simply not there with any other lawyers.
3. She actively participated in the case, she took extra effort to collect lots of information, called various people, engaged an immigration lawyer for a very small fee, used a strategy that I can not mention here and finally was able to convince the DA to reduce it to infraction.
4. She gave me lots of time… Whenever I wanted to meet her and call her, she gave me appointments. She told me the upfront cost before taking the case and she did not charge anything extra during the whole time.
