Due to his ignorance and due not having knowledge with Bankruptcy Law, David Baker has caused great financial hardship to my family. He also does not carry any type of insurance so buyer beware. He has no competency whatsoever and he is disrespected by other attorney and clerks at Bankruptcy Court. I wish I never hired this attorney and want to prevent others from making the same mistake.

David Baker is well-respected as an expert in consumer bankruptcy both within Massachusetts and beyond. Within the legal community he is known to be exceptionally generous with his time as well as a strong advocate for issues of importance to consumer debtors. I highly recommend David and do not hesitate to send particularly complex and difficult cases his way.
