Scott takes care of my legal issues, so I can focus on my business
Scott does a great job of taking care of my legal issues, so I can focus on my Property Management business. I had an issue with a person that had purchased a building from me, and then many months later tried to make an issue that there was a problem with the 2nd floor of the building. We disclosed all in Escrow, but this person still tried to make an issue of it, and Scott quickly and efficiently took care of the issue. This is just one of the cases that Scott handled. His advice is extremely valuable and has certainly helped me make my business more successful. We just forward any possible legal issue to his office, and we are fortunate enough to have them as our attorneys. Mike MF Property Management

A comfortable choice
Having an aversion to the legal system and its convoluted procedures, it is of the utmost importance that I have a lawyer that I can trust competently to represent my interests, as well as one that can put my concerns at ease during the process. Scott Baker is an experienced lawyer who fulfills these requirements perfectly.

Client Review -Scott Baker
I am the CFO of a multi-disciplinary construction and maintenance company that operate throughout California. We have used Scott’s firm for consulting and litigation services for nearly 20 years. His firm has been consistently successful in protecting my company’s rights in various types of matters such as contract disputes, unfair trade practices, employment and collections. I have attended trials, arbitrations, administrative hearings and mediations with Scott and have found him to be fully prepared, responsive to our needs, aggressive yet sensible, and he has the rare ability to educate us on each process while considering the business implications of the legal options. I highly recommend Scott’s firm to everyone who wants a smart, intuitive, caring, diligent and protective attorney who approaches problems with sensible solutions.

studio3 design
Scott was recommended to me by a lawyer friend in DC to help me solve a dispute with a vendor/fabricator in CA who disappeared after payment, but prior to delivery of a custom made product. With persistance and creativity he helped us "catch the bad guy" and impressed our client as well. Scott's compassion for our issue, as well as his prompt professionalism provided our design firm with a positive result. I've also used Scott since to help successfully dissolve a partnership within my company. Without hesitation I've recommended him to folks within the architecture/design industry, as well as out. His advice to me has always been sound, reasonable and proactive.
