Laura, or Laurie to friends, focuses her practice on criminal defense, DWI, traffic/speeding violations and is not opposed to practicing family law. Laurie is a partner in her husband/wife firm of Baker Billick, P.A., along with Amber Billick. Laurie's criminal practice keeps the presence of the firm alive in the Cabarrus County Courthouse as it requires long hours and most days in court.
Laurie is member of the 2002 graduating class of Emory University where she received her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science, with a minor in Sociology. Laurie attended law school at Campbell University's Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law and graduated in 2007. While in law school, Laurie quickly took a leadership role, by being elected as a student representative in the Student Bar Association, a Justice on the Honor Court, and Dean ("president") of the Delta Theta Phi Chapter at Campbell. In addition to excelling in leadership, Laurie also displayed early promise as a litigator while in law school. Laurie was invited in her second year of law school to be a member of one of Campbell's mock trial teams, an honor typically reserved exclusively for third year law students. Upon graduation, Laurie was inducted into the prestigious Order of Barristers for her service to her alma mater and her having displayed excellence in the art of trial advocacy. While in law school Laurie also was asked to join one of Campbell's moot court teams and represented the school at the regional competition. Laurie was also an active member of the Delta Theta Phi Law Fraternity as well as being Dean for 2 years.
Born and raised in La Grange, Texas, Laura M. "Laurie" Baker is a native Texan who found herself in North Carolina in 2004 to attend law school. Luke and Laurie met in law school where they were members of the same law fraternity (Delta Theta Phi) and were partners on the same mock trial team. The Bakers married in November of 2008 and are the proud parents of their son, Garrett Lee Baker, and are currently expecting a new addition, their daughter.

As opposing counsel on a child custody matter with Laura Baker, I was impressed with her knowledge of the law and her strong advocacy for her client. I certainly refer any matters I have in Cabarrus County to Ms. Baker and her partner Lucas Baker. I certainly endorse this lawyer.
