Personal & Business Litigation

When deciding how to resolve a dispute with another individual or business, it's important to understand all your options, their legal impact, and the financial and time implications of each. We understand that is may be time consuming and costly to go to trial, but if settlement negotiations break down then it may be necessary to litigate your case. Your attorney's skill and experience in the courtroom are among the most important factors in the outcome of your trial. The attorneys at the Law Offices of David M. Baker, P.C. have the skill and experience to litigate your case and put you in the best position to succeed and recover some, if not all, of your costs. We are knowledgeable in the intricacies of civil discovery in both the state district and superior courts as well as in the United States District Court.

Personal Injury

Suffering an injury in an automobile accident or on someone else's property can be devastating, especially if the healing process is prolonged and your health never returns to normal. The process of recovering compensation for such injuries is fraught with pitfalls that only an experienced personal injury attorney can help you overcome. Attorney David M. Baker has worked both in the insurance industry and as a prosecutor, providing him with a unique perspective. This rare combination gives Attorney Baker an advantage when working with insurance companies in obtaining the compensation you seek and deserve.

Estate Planning & Probate

Planning for your family's future is one of the most important things you will ever do. If you do not clearly and legally explain through a well-drafted will how you would like your assets distributed, thecourt will decide for you. Most likely, the end result will not be what you would have wanted for your family. Protect your loved ones from taxes, nursing homes, and other creditors to the fullest extent possible.
