Great people to work with! They were knowledgable in their field, and helped me through my divorce. Amber helped with my custody case and really took interest in my kids and I. Megan was wonderful to communicate with and really helped me understand a lot of the day-to-day things. Thank you guys!!!

I had to wait until I was at my boiling point to get the job done. After I paid them to facilitate the purchase of my house (which was poorly executed and totally unprofessional, btw) they wanted nothing to do with me. I had to actually physically go to the office to pick up the deed to my house/land because they didn't feel like sending it to me the first 4 times I asked for it. This happened today, July 7th! The deed was actually notarized on April 27th!!!!!!! And get this! while trying to get answers to the questions I fully had rights to asking (will someone go over this deed with me? Why did it take so long for me to get it?) Holt, the owner, comes out to tell me he is going to call the cops on me! Not to apologize for terrible customer service, for no one returning my calls, for being pushed to the side like I wasn't important, but to tell me he was going to call the police. Hahahaha. Really, if you want a terrible experience from A-Z, hire Holt and his awesome team of "experts."

I am a single divorced father and have been represented by Baker Billick, P.A. (previously Baker Law Firm, P.A.) since 2010. Highly recommend their legal services. Very professional. They listen and they care and they act. Thank-you! I wish I had found you sooner!

THIS guy is an absolute joke as an attorney. IF you want to be convicted just hire him. Here is a big plus you get when you have him as an attorney; IF you don't do exactly as he says? He threatens you with physical harm. I AM NOT lying about any of this. You've been forewarned. IF he is appointed to you as a court appointed attorney, YOU have the right to say no thanks. I didn't know that then. IF you hire him on your own? YOU are an idiot.
Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as yellowpages.com. You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
