Client Reviews
John Baker did a great job with my personal injury case. I couldn't have asked for a better settlement. I would recommend Mr. Baker to anyone that needed help after an accident.
I was injured in a slip and fall accident. John Baker advised me in the beginning that my case might be tough to win. I appreciated his honesty, however he did WIN!!! Thank you Baker & Slider, LLC.
John was awesome! He was attentive, accessible, and extremely prepared. I hope I never need another attorney, but if I do John has a client for life. He addressed all my concerns and was extremely candid with me regarding my particular case. I highly recommend him.
John Baker researched our case carefully, made recommendations and went over our options, kept us up to date and helped us reach a settlement quickly. We would recommend him to anyone needing a civil litigation attorney.
My husband and I were very pleased with Attorney Baker. He answered our questions, took away our worries, went out of his way to explain things and got our case settled in a short amount of time. I am very thankful someone recommended him to us.
Working with Baker and Slider was a great experience! You feel like you are working with friends who are available to you at any time. Very professional and hard working. Will use them again if the situation ever arises.”
