Baker, 37, a member of Mitchell Williams Selig Gates & Woodyard in Little Rock, provides counsel to clients on matters regarding contract, real estate and class action defense litigation.
Baker’s most groundbreaking lawsuit was a 2001 federal court injunction he obtained against the U.S. Secretary of Health & Human Services on behalf of a nonprofit nursing home. He also obtained a Freedom of Information Act ruling for his client before the Arkansas Court of Appeals in 2000.
Chambers USA and Best Lawyers in America have named Baker as a leading lawyer.
Baker is also fiercely devoted to helping his community. In 1997, he co-founded Tree Streets Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to adding to and restoring the natural canopy of Little Rock’s downtown neighborhoods. Since the organization's launch, 1,000 trees have been planted.
"It’s a tangible thing to keep your city from suffering," Baker said. "You can see the fruit of your work."
Baker also serves on the board of Camp Aldersgate and is a former president of the nonprofit's board.
