"I am humbled that the Bar Association has chosen to recognize me with its Professionalism Award," said Mr. Baker. "I believe it is incumbent upon all attorneys to observe the strictest ethical standards, and to give back to our profession by helping fellow practitioners do the same. I am both proud and grateful to belong to a law firm and a bar association that share these beliefs."

A former attorney for the Judge Advocate General Corps of the U.S. Army, he focuses his practice on estate planning and administration, real property and corporate and business matters.
