It's time for something different; a fresh and innovative approach to personal injury law.  When you walk in our lobby, you'll see the quote, "The most dangerous phrase in any language is we've always done it this way."    

Communication is at the forefront of our operation.  The number one complaint about lawyers across the profession is a lack of communication between attorney and client during the course of representation.  Many personal injury firms assign "case managers" or other administrative staff to handle cases and field client calls.  I assure you this is NOT the case at the Baker Law Group.  As a boutique firm, our team is strong and well informed.  You will speak to an attorney when you have questions regarding your case.   

Insurance companies are more than willing to accept your premium every month.  However, when you file a claim for fair and reasonable compensation, full cooperation is rare at best.  Tort reform, caps on jury verdicts and keeping you out of the courtroom are the mechanisms insurance companies use to reduce the bottom line. They also spending countless sums of money on advertising for a product you are legally required to purchase if you choose to drive in the State of Ohio.  For them, it's just business.  For you, it is a serious disruption in your quality of life.   

We are a low volume firm.  Personal attention to our clients and their cases matter. Stretching resources results in an overall reduction in quality leading to diminished outcomes.  We are a boutique operation for a reason; quality over quantity produces the best results.  Read our reviews, they speak for themselves.

Our results are recovery driven.  Our approach is not limited to physical injuries, but also the mental and financial difficulties that stem from accident related injuries and challenges.  

I very much look forward to meeting with you and reviewing your case.  At The Baker Law Group, gone are the days of allowing the insurance companies defining the process in which our clients are compensated.

Second time client of Andrew Baker, great work again.
Andrew represented me about 10 years ago for a criminal case that ended up getting reduced and then expunged. Service and legal outcomes were excellent then and even better now. I had him represent me again in January of 2018 for a criminal felony case and just had the case dismissed in April of 2019. I once again have a clean record thanks to Andrew Baker. He is very personable and definitely went above and beyond for me. I was really anxious about turning myself in to jail for this but he was able to explain the whole process to me which made it a little less intimidatin. In the end everything went according to plan just like he had said. I hope that I am not in need of a lawyer again but I can say without a doubt that Andrew will be my first call should I ever get into trouble again.

Stellar !
I sincerely hope no one has to seek a lawyer for their small child, but if you do Drew and his staff are the absolute best. They are compassionate, thorough and amazing! They are efficient and ready for any task, always getting things done on time and questions answered, with nothing left undone. I cannot thank everyone enough for their kindness and 5 star professionalism. I never had to worry about a thing. My daughter was completely taken care of with this law firm. Undeniably the best in this business. We will forever be grateful to you.

Above & Beyond Expectations
Over the years I've needed to employ the services of attorneys several times. I can't say that any of my former attorneys gave me poor representation, but I can honestly say none of them compare to the professional, honest & thorough representation I received from The Baker Law Group. I was highly concerned about receiving a negative outcome in my case. Drew assured me that he & his team would do everything in their power to ensure I would be granted the best possible outcome & they did just that. Drew has an amazing track record that speaks for itself. He is highly regarded in the law community, in the court system & in the city in general. After meeting him & having him on your side, you'll understand why. I believe the best quality about Drew is that he cares about getting you the best outcome, but also truly cares about you, as a person, & getting you the help you need to ensure you're in a better position going forward in life. Many people have negative ideas regarding attorneys, myself included. Drew is the type of attorney & person who changes that narrative. I highly recommend Drew & The Baker Law Group for all your representation needs. If you want the best, look no further.

Drew is amazing
I hired Drew after my car wreck three years ago... He has been amazing and really supportive during the entire duration of getting my case settled in a middle of a pandemic, that of course slowed things down. Drew has his own method to the madness. If I ever needed an attorney again I would most definitely contact Drew again. Not only did we settle my case and void a trial but its more than I could have asked for. I would definitely recommend Drew to anyone.

Helped When We Needed Help
About a year ago, a family member had to have surgery for an injury sustained while on active military duty in Iraq. In spite of having used the same doctor and medical facilities previously, the insurance company denied some of the claims leaving us liable for a very large medical bill. After unsuccessful appeals to the insurance company, we consulted with and hired Attorney Baker to represent us in the matter. Within days, he was up to speed on our situation after having reviewed the various documents from both the medical facility and the insurance company. He again appealed the insurance company's decision on our behalf, pointing out several reasons why we/he felt that the claim was both justifiable and valid. After what seemed like a very long 30- 40-day wait, the insurance company reversed their initial decision and within a few weeks after that reversal, paid the claims in question completely. While this may not be the best way to go about things, this was all done "long distance" as we lived several hours from Attorney Baker's office. Through communication by both telephone and email, we were able to provide Mr. Baker with the relevant information, documents and materials that he needed to pursue our appeal. Whether we spoke with Mr. Baker directly or to a member of his staff, we were always treated with the highest level of professionalism and our concerns became their concerns. Even while on vacation, Mr. Baker stayed in touch with us, keeping us informed with his efforts on our behalf and the status of the proceedings. I'm sure that everyone feels that they are right and that someone else is to blame but we did feel that we had been misinformed by several parties in the case and that we did have legitimate and valid reasons for our position. Attorney Baker took that position seriously and effectively represented us in dealing with all parties involved. While we hope to never be in a situation like that again, if such a need should arise, we would not hesitate to contact Attorney Baker to represent us again. We were completely satisfied with his efforts on our behalf and would highly recommend him as legal representation in similar matters.

Great Attorney... definitely the one to hire....
Andrew represented me in a time when all that could go bad did go bad. My case turned into a high profile situation that drew way more attention for the wrong reasons. Andrew advised me accordingly and helped me through this very difficult time and never gave up on me. Andrew and his staff explained every detail of what to expect and what our strategy would be. Andrew explained clearly what my options were and what he would counter with to defend my case. Andrew and his staff were always there in my corner when at times it felt like no one else was. My case turned out great and I have Andrew to thank for that. I'd highly recommend him to anyone and God forbid I'd need him again in this capacity I'd call on him again.

Highly Recommend
I would highly recommend Drew and his colleagues to anyone needing a great team to represent them. I have hired Drew on more than one case and he has always provided me with not only the best advice but the best service. He is professional and thorough at his job and works hard to get the best possible outcome for his clients. During some stressful times, Drew really put my mind at ease providing me with great advice and reassurance. With Drew, you won’t be treated as just a client but a close friend and that comes with the comfort of knowing you can trust him on your side. I would hire Drew over and over again and will do so if the time comes again. He is a fantastic attorney.

Best of the Best!
I was referred to Andrew Baker by an attorney I currently work for. It was a very pleasant experience. Andrew is an incredible professional while also being very personable, at the same time. He reviewed my case, gave a layout of what my options were, told me what to expect next, and then took the reigns from there. I did not have to worry about a thing! His firm was excellent at responding, communicating, and keeping me informed about what was going on with the case. His secretary is the sweetest person to speak to and it was always so pleasant to hear from her. The office is absolutely breathtaking and beautifully designed with glass and a rooftop patio. His services were outstanding!! I would recommend him time and time again.

Friendly, attentive, and experienced
Drew Baker made sure that I knew he and the Baker Law Group were on my side. They carefully explained how these legal issues typically go, how insurance companies usually operate, and what type of responsibilities I had in this case. I was in a car accident and was lucky to have Drew Baker and the Baker Law Group to turn to. I truly appreciate his attention to detail and ability to communicate clearly as this was my first 'rodeo'.

Drew was great to work with
Drew was great when he took on my case in 2014. He and I met on a few occasions and he handled things from there. I would highly recommend Drew, he was a great resource when I had questions or did not understand certain things and was very easy to work with/talk to. He was able to close my case and I was very pleased with the outcome.

HIGHLY recommended! Wouldn't use anyone else!
I cannot believe how easy and stress free my experience was working with Drew. At no point did I feel worried about how my case would turn out after meeting with him. He was extremely knowledgeable, professional and prepared from start to finish. I never imagined I'd find an attorney so good that I wouldn't even have to step foot in the courtroom...he took care of everything! I highly recommend Drew and will be using him for any legal issues from here on out!
