We were referred to Joseph through an Employee Assistance Program at work. We had personal property damage through a contractor and our home owners insurance denied the claim as not qualifying as one of the allowed damage reasons and the contractor’s insurance was difficult and unresponsive. We met with Joseph and he took on our claim and represented us through both insurance companies and he was able to help us recover the financial loss that we experienced while being very fair and reasonable on his rates. We had a great, easy experience.

Our daughter was sick so we took her to the hospital. One of the nurses did not like me and talked to a social worker who poked her head in for a second and then called CPS. That same day the hospital put a hold on our son and daughter. Even though our son was not even sick. A lady from CPS lied and told a bunch of BS in order to create bias and prejudice against us we found out later. We found Joseph Baker through David Gehrke as David was not taking CPS cases. We could not afford a second lawyer so my wifey was assigned a public defender Clarke Tibbits. Joseph and Clark were like the Seahawks football team fighting with a tough team. CPS, you all know lies and cheats the system and my wife and I were scared as heck. The last 4 days were long and really tough. I had to get on stand and try to explain and not ruin it. I can run my mouth the wrong way, but Joseph 's guidance helped me keep calm and at the end...Judge gave us back our kids and said we had to do services for the CPS. Though we hate doing anything for CPS, we have our kids and that is the most important thing ever. Thank you so much Joseph Baker....we will send people who need help your way forever.

This is the best Lawyer that I will ever have in my lifetime and that I have ever had a family member has referred me to Joe and it has been a blessing. I have had a couple charges and both have been dismissed Joe worked very hard. He is highly respectable and very knowledgeable. I have made some mistakes in life and Joe has given me more than just a 2nd chance at life. He is very reliable always very responsive. He has good communication skills always lets you know what can happen and has certain goals set for you to succeed. Joe fought for my freedom, rights and showed me the right path to correct my wrongs by making them right.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
Joe is a skilled and tenacious lawyer. He and I were opposing attorneys in a difficult case, and throughout the process he demonstrated not only strong advocacy for his client, but creative problem solving and collaboration to arrive at a good outcome to everyone involved. I enthusiastically endorse this lawyer.
