Attorney Baird is an excellent attorney. She has a cool, clam demeanor, is great at thinking on her feet and is very intelligent. Her passion for constitutional and civil rights makes her stand out in a field of 'pump and dump' attorneys who simply want you to pay them thousands of dollars only to leave you hanging after putting you through a plea deal.
I have had the pleasure to not only work with Attorney Baird in a professional setting but to also be her client in a Federal Civil Rights lawsuit currently in appeal in the second circuit. Attorney Baird took my case when no one else would and she works as aggressively on the suit as I could possibly want her to.
Not only is Attorney Baird a great lawyer by herself, but she has a great law office including at least one other attorney and a legal investigator who is top notch. Together, this team comes up with creative solutions to complex problems and can be relied on completely when the chips are down.
Attorney Baird is great to work with and gives your case the best chances of success. Not only would I recommend her, I do on a regular basis.

Attorney Baird reviewed the facts of my case and presented a very agressive response in my behalf. I have every reason to believe that she constantly thinks outside the box and offers the best legal representation you can ask for.

I have used Attorney Baird to represent me on two different occasions. In addition two friends have also retained her in the recent past…one for a divorce action and the other was for a criminal matter.
I come from 33 years of law enforcement; I’ve seen and worked with many attorneys. Attorney Baird is extremely professional, but more than that she puts a lot of time and energy into her cases. She will come up with points of law and issues that most others would completely miss.
I have seen many attorneys just go through the motions, file the appropriate paperwork and make the required appearances. You pay them and your case gets handled…basically. A secretary could handle the case for you in the same manner.
I know of people who have paid huge retainers to attorneys that just walk the case through the system, they represent you, in the most elementary manner. Attorney Baird works for you, she’s aggressive (appropriately so), tenacious, hard-working and will represent you and fight for you better than any other attorney I know.
