Baker Law opened in 2018, less than 1 year after Harvey made landfall. Because I grew up in Portland, Texas, and so much of my family lives in this Coastal Bend area, moving to Rockport was a lot like coming home. I practiced law in large firms, and in large cities, for more than 20 years of my career, but it wasn’t until I left behind those big firms and their “big firm mentality” that I truly began to enjoy my work. Practicing law in Rockport, and being blessed with the opportunity to help local people and businesses, has finally allowed me to realize just how rewarding practicing law can be.
For years I built a niche practice helping home and business owners with property damage claims and other insurance-related matters. Never did I think “the big one” would actually hit in my own backyard. Hurricane Harvey may have taken a lot from us, but I believe this community is stronger and more uniquely equipped to understand and empathize with those who must walk through catastrophic events. In helping my friends, family, and neighbors in Rockport, I’ve come to understand and appreciate the importance of personal connections. I will continue to help clients with future storm claims and insurance disputes, because I am certain the insurance companies will not change. As I’m blessed with future opportunities to help people in need, I will strive to connect with and understand each client personally. Since the foundation of this firm, I have always said, and I will continue to say: “We represent friends, family, and neighbors. If you aren’t one when we get started, we want you to be one when we are finished.”
