About Me

I counsel with people experiencing financial difficulty to determine the best course of action to effectively deal with debts while retaining as much asset value as possible.  The services provided include asset protection consultation, foreclosure defense, short sales, credit card lawsuit defense and both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies.

    I endorse this lawyer. He has an extremely competent and professional title insurance company -- the best I have ever worked with. They go above and beyond what is required of them to close the transactions they have been retained to close. I cannot recommend Mr. Baker and his title insurance company strongly enough.
