Just. awesome!
Mr. Baker is a STELLAR attorney!! He was friendly, professional, and VERY helpful in my situation. I HIGHLY recommend his firm!!! His receptionist was also friendly, and professional. She replied quickly to emails/phone calls & always got the answers I needed. I had lost hope in getting custody back of my daughter. I had tried to do it on my own and after I reached a certain point I kept hitting roadblock after roadblock. I called Mr Baker, got a free consultation, and he said he was confident he could help me. After the consult I decided he was the attorney for me! I'm so thankful for him & his willingness to take on my case. He not only helped me understand the legal stuff but he also got in the courtroom and made everything I had tried to do happen in no time flat. This was money VERY WELL SPENT!! I will be putting 5star reviews on several sites for this firm!!! Thanks again for helping bring my family back together!

Great guy to have in your corner
I could not recommend Colton Baker highly enough. He has been extremely helpful in making my messy and confusing legal matters clear and easy to understand. The best part though is that I know that I can trust his advice. He has always been open and honest with me, as well as been very caring and generous where others would not have been. Divorce is hard enough with all of the grief, mistrust, and ulterior motives, but Colton's integrity helped provide stability and a sense of calm in an otherwise unyielding storm. Very thankful to have him in my corner.
