About Laura

Learn Laura’s areas of practice.

Laura, or Laurie to friends, focuses her practice on criminal defense, DWI, traffic/speeding violations and potentially capital murder trial work.  After 8 years as a partner at Baker Billick, P.A. with her husband, Luke Baker and her good friend Amber Billick, Laurie decided to really focus on what she is passionate about: criminal trial work.

 

Laurie is member of the 2002 graduating class of Emory University where she received her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science, with a minor in Sociology. Laurie attended law school at Campbell University's Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law and graduated in 2007. While in law school, Laurie quickly took a leadership role, by being elected as a student representative in the Student Bar Association, a Justice on the Honor Court, and Dean ("president") of the Delta Theta Phi Chapter at Campbell. In addition to excelling in leadership, Laurie also displayed early promise as a litigator while in law school. Laurie was invited in her second year of law school to be a member of one of Campbell's mock trial teams, an honor typically reserved exclusively for third year law students. Upon graduation, Laurie was inducted into the prestigious Order of Barristers for her service to her alma mater and her having displayed excellence in the art of trial advocacy. While in law school Laurie also was asked to join one of Campbell's moot court teams and represented the school at the regional competition. Laurie was also an active member of the Delta Theta Phi Law Fraternity as well as being Dean for 2 years.

 

Born and raised in La Grange, Texas, Laura M. "Laurie" Baker is a native Texan who found herself in North Carolina in 2004 to attend law school.  Luke and Laurie met in law school where they were members of the same law fraternity (Delta Theta Phi) and were partners on the same mock trial team.  The Bakers married in November of 2008 and are the proud parents of their son, Garrett, and their daughter, Audrey.

Best Case Resolution
Ms. Baker did a fantastic job resolving my case. Communication was timely and clear, all possible outcomes were fully explained, and she was able to get the charge amended down to a best-case scenario resolution. I'm grateful for her time and professionalism as well as positive outcome.

Rather than be afraid of what the legal system can do to your life and the lives around you speak with Mrs. Baker
Mrs. Baker was willing to help me where others were not, I put my trust in her, and I can tell you right now that it was the smartest decision I made. I watched as the opposition tried to play games with my case and in turn the lives of my family, Mrs. Baker did not allow this to go unchecked. With out her leading the charge on my behalf I would have been in a world where I understood very little and could have lost far more than one would have been willing to lose. Both Mrs. Baker and her assistant were invaluable in my defense, I was kept up to date on all court proceedings preventing me from being caught unaware. Even in times where I had doubts as to what the opposition was after or the outcome of my case, I had the reassurance of Mrs. Baker on my side the entire time removing those very same doubts.

I asked Laura to represent my son (17) on a speeding ticket and could not have been any happier with both her and her assistant's (Amy) professionalism. Every question was answered promptly, they explained everything throughout the process and the case ended up with a favorable outcome.

Speeding Ticket resolution.
Laura Baker was referred to us from a friend and we are very happy. Amy Gray took the lead for our speeding case and provided us with great service and the results were better than expected. Very reasonable cost and highly recommended using this Firm.

BEST LAWYER EVER!!!
I hired Mrs. Baker to represent me on a DUI charge I received last year and let me tell you that was the best decision I could’ve made. She was so thorough and efficient with every aspect leading all the way up the the court date. Her and her teams communication deserves a 11/10 for letting me know their findings and plan of action moving forward every step of the way. If you’re looking for a lawyer you’ve definitely made the right decision. Best of all Mrs. Baker came through with a win. Hopefully I don’t but if I ever need a lawyer again she will be my choice every time.

Great Lawyer. Great Person. Great Results.
If you are looking for an amazing lawyer, Laura Baker is your person!! I used her as a criminal lawyer and she was able to get my charges lowered to best case scenario. Obviously every case is different, but Mrs Baker works very hard to do what she says she will do and she was up front about all possible outcomes. She is very knowledgeable in her field, yet also caring & takes time to explain things. I highly recommend hiring her if you need great representation for your case. You won't regret it.

Smart, dedicated and effective
I retained Laura Baker to represent me in an assault case. I had two charges against me. Attorney Baker quickly understood my situation. She was quick to respond any time I had questions. She kept me informed and let me know what to expect each step of the way. She really fought for me and got the best result I could have hoped for.

Peace of Mind!!! 1,000% Satisfied!!!
Laura Baker is an Angel; I received a letter from NCDMV informing me that I would get my license suspended for a citation I received during the pandemic. I hired a previous lawyer to take care of it, therefore, I did not think any longer of it, well this previous lawyer Did Not appear in court, causing me to almost get my license suspended. Luckily, I found Laura Baker and she quickly took care of my citation. She took care of this matter for me with in a week, Saved me so much money!! And now I can continue my busy mom life like normal. Thank you!!! Thank you!!! Laura Baker:)

SHE KILLED IT IN THE COURT ROOM !
I was given Laura Baker as a court appointed attorney for a case that I was kind of stressed about winning, however, she had my back ten fold and really gave her all to win my case for me. She communicated with me efficiently where as previous lawyers I’ve had were impossible to get in touch with. I’m am so happy to of been awarded such a fantastic and understanding attorney, and I will definitely be returning to her services if needed again!
