Scott Baker has been the principal attorney of Baker & Associates, an A-V rated civil law firm since 1994. His practice focuses on providing counseling and litigation services to national and regional enterprises, and entrepreneurs in business, construction, intellectual property, trade secret and insurance related matters. He has been an effective advocate for his clients in trials, arbitrations, mediations, administrative hearings and appeals.

He is admitted to practice law before all courts in California, Ohio and the District of Columbia.

During his career, Mr. Baker served as Chief West Coast Counsel for Agency Rent-A-Car, Inc., where he was responsible for litigation and transactional work in the areas of business, real estate, employment, insurance, advertising and personal injury law. In that capacity, Mr. Baker created and implemented audit and risk management guidelines, litigation cost controls, and training programs for attorneys, paralegals and adjusters.

Mr. Baker obtained his undergraduate degree with honors from The Ohio State University in Business Administration, and his Juris Doctorate from Case Western Reserve University School of Law, where he served on the Moot Court Executive Board.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
