I am unsatisfied with Mr.Baker's performance and representation. His communication with me was poor and at times felt confrontational. On occasion I asked him to clarify his strategy and for more assertiveness, his response was always; "you are welcome to find someone else to represent you". I suggest that you do!
If you are seeking aggressive defense, I suggest that you keep looking!
Extremely knowledgeable in firearm rights. Very up front and open with options. Always very prompt and clear with responses. Did not nickel and dime for every question asked or phone call placed.
I found myself in a bit of a jamb when I swerved to avoid an errant vehicle and upon hitting a light post flipped my truck. The perceptions and accounts at the scene did not seem to match the infraction with which I was eventually cited. Joseph listened to me for understanding and then protected my legal rights and my driving record. We went from a possible two to three point hit to my record and a $550 fine down to a $150 fee to the court on a silly non-moving trifle which most importantly left my record unaffected. I am quite pleased with his services and the result he was able to negotiate for me.
Joe Baker is curently working on my divorce case. I was referred to him by a friend that works at the firm. I am going through a divorce and got my children taken away from. Completely blindsided by my soon to be ex. I gave Joe a $3500 retainer to represent me back 3 months ago and the case is still going on. I have asked him to try to settle the case for me because it is costing a lot more than I was quoted. I dont feel like Joe is a good advocate for me at all. I question if he is really looking out for my best interest. I had to give him another $3500 two months in to the case. I have spent far more that what I expected and not getting the representation I feel I have paid for. Joe's response is If I am not happy with his representation I can fire him. I feel like I have been mis-informed and have not had good strong represetation . I should have looked at attorneys with better ratings on the internet. You get one chance to make a good impression on the court and need good strong represtation. Joe is not the guy for the job.
Joe is an excellent attorney. He always got back to me quickly and took time to listen to my issues. He treated me like I was his only client which is hard to find in any field. I would definately recommend him to all my friends and family.
