“Clients are sometimes skeptical of public defenders, but I advocate for everyone equally.”

I became an attorney because I wanted to make a meaningful impact. That’s what it’s all about to me — standing up for one person at a time, no matter their age, color, background, or social status. My heart’s always all-in.

A plea bargain should be the last resort.

Even a small conviction can affect you for the rest of your life. That’s why you can’t surrender. That’s why you can’t take the first offer."

Some may try to tell you that you’re going to be convicted no matter what, so you might as well plead guilty and take a lesser sentence. Do not listen to those people. They are either misinformed or do not have your best interests at heart. 

A conviction can impact your ability to secure a job, find housing, and carry firearms for years to come. It is not something you want on your record, particularly if you’re innocent. I protect my clients from agreeing to unfair plea bargains, and when pleading guilty is the only practical option left, I still work to negotiate the best possible terms.

Don’t give up your power...

The Baker Difference


I explain the legal process in a clear and concise manner. After all, this is your life, and you should understand exactly how the law affects it.


Some people say you shouldn’t bring your work home, but I carry my clients and their stories with me. Each one touches me personally.


It feels good to win, but it feels even better to win ethically. I’ve been achieving steady results for eight years without any lies or deceit.

How My Clients Feel

The verdict should not be influenced by your race, social class, or personal history.

If person A and person B have the same charges against them, you’d think each would receive the same punishment. Well, that’s not always true. Many factors can affect a sentence, but an individual’s race, social class, and personal history should not be any of them. Unfortunately, though, they are often some of the aspects considered. 

Putting an individual’s life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness under siege because the person is poor, a minority, or has a previous criminal record is not okay. 

The legal system needs to change, and my goal is to help lead the movement. It’s actually one of the biggest reasons why I became an attorney. I’ve always had a clear motto, and it goes like this: "If you don’t like the way things are, infiltrate the organization and change it."

Clients sense this passion within me, and even when the worst of the worst happens, they always know I fought my hardest for them. Many of my court-appointed clients have never received this type of advocacy before, which is a shame. At my firm, I don’t put a price tag on quality.

In Texas, depending on how a case is disposed of, you may be able to get your record expunged. How do you know if you qualify to have a case expunged? If your case has been dismissed without being placed on probation or you are acquitted by a jury, you can have that case expunged from your record.
