Skilled At Trial
Felony Criminal Defense
You may think a DWI conviction is inevitable, what with the training of the police officer combined with the sophistication of the tests and testing materials. While challenges exist, a skilled attorney can locate those errors that have occurred and use those errors to leverage a better bargain in negotiations or to increase your chances for a favorable result at trial. Instead of jail and a suspended license following a drunk driving conviction, you could get the chance to start over.
Misdemeanor Criminal Defense
While the consequences are not as severe as felony charges, misdemeanor charges and convictions can still change your life, particularly when you’re looking at new job opportunities or trying to find an apartment. From shoplifting to assault, to drunk driving, a misdemeanor crime is anything but a minor legal matter and requires the advice and assistance of an experienced professional to obtain the best result.

Baker will provide the same level of dedicated representation before an administrative board as he would before a judge and jury.
