Jason serves clients in the areas of criminal and DUI defense having tried over 100 criminal jury trials over the last 12 years. He is AV rated by Martindale Hubbell in criminal law, litigation and general practice and is a general member of the National College for DUI Defense.  His extensive criminal defense work and his prior experience of working with a judge and as a prosecutor has allowed him to see how cases are handled from all sides of the judicial system. He uses this knowledge of what judges like to hear and how prosecutors build their case to represent his clients through all stages of their matter.


Jason graduated from the University of Georgia Magna Cum Laude, with High Honors and from the University of Georgia School of Law Cum Laude, He has been practicing in Northeast Georgia since 2002. Prior to forming Baker & Slider, LLC he worked as a staff attorney for the State Court of Clarke County and as a prosecutor in the Office of the Solicitor General for Athens-Clarke County.


Jason is a member of the Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys where he regularly speaks to groups of University of Georgia students regarding their rights as to the typical criminal issues that college students encounter such as dui, underage possession, and fake id.
