Fred Baker - Probate court / Will Dispute victory
Fred Baker was amazing. I wanted to dispute the appointment of the executor of my father's estate. Since I've half a country away, I used AVVO to find a lawyer in CT. Before the hearing, Mr. Baker listened to my story, talked to my siblings and collected all the history and then sat down with me to explain all the legal details involved. He was candid that deputing a will is an uphill battle and having the executor removed was almost impossible. But he gave me options and proposed practice compromises. Then he explained court details that I could never have known which gave me the confidence to face the judge and other attorneys. During the hearing he negotiated with the other attorneys using tactics that I never have would have imagined. I wasn't asking to change the the dispersal of the will, but the nominated executor and estate lawyer were being ruthless and unflinching. Fred Baker used reason, suggesting a simple compromise, and when that didn't work he utilized every other option available. He scared the life out of my opponent, threatening them with long delays and huge expenses until I got the result I needed. Despite everyone warning me it would be outrageously expensive, Mr. Baker he did it for a very reasonable fee. We only me once, since I had to travel across the country for the hearing, but I was very impressed with his performance and him as a person.

"Being a fellow Tax Attorney in the Danbury Area, I thought that I would give Fred Baker a call and set up a time for us to chat. I have now met with Mr. Baker a couple of times and we've spent hours talking about the fields of tax controversies, tax resolution, estate planning, and probate. Fred really knows his stuff, and I am happy to endorse him."
