Early in his legal career, Mr. Baker served as an assistant district attorney with the Kings County District Attorney's Office in New York. There he gained considerable trial experience before entering private practice, where he continued to hone his trial and jury skills with several prominent law firms in Rhode Island. It was during this time he began focusing on tortious and liability litigation, specifically involving multi-district breast implant litigation.

Mr. Baker then relocated to Florida and continued advocating on behalf of those injured or killed as the result of defective products and other acts of negligence. Among his most notable successes, he argued before the Florida Supreme Court on a case that would alter the laws and regulations regarding uninsured and underinsured motorists, and he secured a verdict of more than $39 million against a major watercraft manufacturer on behalf of two teens, one of whom was severely injured and the other killed in a jet ski accident.

Since establishing his own legal practice, Mr. Baker has sustained a considerable level of success, securing numerous substantial settlements and verdicts for accident victims and their families. As a result, he has earned a membership in the Million Dollar Advocates Forum as well as many top rankings, endorsements and awards from his peers, including recognition from Best of Boca and selection as a finalist in the Daily Business Review's Most Effective Lawyers of South Florida.

A 1986 graduate of Ithaca College, Mr. Baker obtained his Juris Doctor from Boston University School of Law in 1989. He holds his license to practice in New York, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Florida, and he is admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida and the District of Rhode Island as well as before the U.S. Claims Court.

Mr. Baker is an active member of The Florida Bar, the American Association for Justice and the Florida Justice Association, among his other professional affiliations.
