Mr Baker painted a good picture,he told me he would handle my case in 60 days ,took my money 3500 then it all went south he canceled court 3 times, all the while not returning my phone calls and texts and doing his best to avoid me ,even the office staff at Diaz&Jakob is fully aware of what kind of attorney Mr Baker is! He is a con man disguised as a lawyer ,had no knowledge ,didnt do his research didn't even know who the judge was that day and lost my case ! I would never refer him to anyone, he is a man with out honor!

I hired Eric Baker as a out of state lawyer to represent me in a child custody case in Texas. The first case he represented me in was to determine if Ohio or Texas would hold jurisdiction over the case being that my daughter only lived in Texas for 6 months. The state of Texas was granted jurisdiction over my daughter. Eric Baker told me that he would provide me the documents from that case, it has been over a month since the jurisdiction hearing and I have yet to receive any documents pertaining to the ruling of the courts. After that case I have sent Eric Baker a list of matters which needed addressed per filing a modification and gave him the green light to type up the modification request document and he told me he would have it to me the next day for my review and I never received the documents. i asked him a couple of days later if he had drafted the modification request for changes I wanted in my order and he again said he was waiting for my go ahead. I told him that I had already given him the green light to draft the paperwork so he again said he would have it for me the next day. Again i contacted him to see where we stood on the proposals and like the other times he told me he was waiting for the green light. I than had to fire him. Eric bakers mission statement states
"Your Needs Come First. When you choose our law firm, you will work directly with an experienced lawyer. We will take the time to learn about your situation, your family and your goals. We put your needs first and make certain that the legal strategy we recommend is what is best for you. After we implement that strategy, we will stand by your side until a resolution is reached."
Truth is he does not care about you or your situation, unless it is time to pay him a retainer. I wish I would have read these reviews before hiring him to handle my custody case.

We hired Kenneth Eric Baker for a case. He quit responding to our calls, texts and emails...Then when we could get hold of him and we ask why he will not consistently communicate with us, he would threaten to quit our case, and told he does not give refunds for his lack of services.
Mostly because in my opinion he does not know what he is doing...He has been reprimanded by the state, that should tell you everything you need to know!!!!
Very temperamental and threatening
