Placing the client first. Benjamin A. Baker has practiced
law in the State of Texas since 1989. Mr. Baker moved to Grayson County in
1992, and since that time has served clients in Sherman, Denison, and other
parts of Grayson, Cooke, Fannin, Collin and Lamar Counties. Throughout his
career, Mr. Baker has demonstrated a strong commitment to old fashioned values
and an unfaltering dedication to the ethical obligations owed to his clients.
Mr. Baker’s approach to the practice of law is to provide legal
representation of the highest caliber in the most cost effective manner possible.
Mr. Baker also recognizes that each client’s problems have unique
characteristics, and that each client has different life and business
experiences which will determine the client’s objectives and definitions
of success. Because of this understanding, Mr. Baker approaches each new case
with the attitude that creativity is the key to fashioning a strategy for success.
Mr. Baker shuns the “cookie-cutter” approach to the practice of law
and will provide the kind of personalized representation that makes each client
feel that their story was zealously and effectively told, and that they had a
meaningful day in court. Some have said that the key to Mr. Baker’s
practice is that he “thinks outside the box.”
Whether your need for an attorney arises out of a serious and disabling injury,
the death of a loved one, an unfortunate divorce involving matters of
child custody or property division, a bad consumer transaction, or a
frivolous suit against your business, you can rest assured that Mr.
Baker will undertake those steps necessary to provide you with
competent, aggressive and zealous representation.
A small town practice with big firm technology.
In order to maximize the effectiveness of his representation, Mr. Baker
has made the financial commitment towards procuring state of the art
technology. This includes litigation support software, internet client
communications, internet client document transmittal, internet legal
research, and computerized billing software.
Baker also realizes that a vast amount of human communication is
non-verbal. For this reason, the firm has acquired the equipment
necessary to conduct the in-house videotaping of the depositions of
opposing parties and key fact witnesses. This equipment includes a
professional grade digital video recorder (Sony model no. DSR-PDX10) to
ensure that each deposition is clearly recorded, and a state of the art
sound board to ensure that the testimony and statements of all
deposition participants, whether witnesses or attorneys, are preserved
for the hearing of the jury at trial. Mr. Baker has also acquired
software packages which facilitate the scrolling of deposition
testimony simultaneously with the playing of the actual video
deposition. Because this video recording is conducted “in-house,” it is
more financially practical to record depositions in a case, regardless
of the anticipated monetary value of the case, and the availability of
a videographer is always insured.
Finally, in our modern society, most people best learn through a combination of visual
and auditory information. Acknowledging this trend, the firm has
acquired a state of the art digital data projector (Mitsubishi Model
No. XD300U; 2100 lumens) with an accompanying five foot projector
screen. Utilizing this technology, Mr. Baker can rely upon available
software packages to integrate a point by point presentation of the
strengths of a party’s case, which can then be interwoven with relevant
videotaped deposition clips to support the points of the presentation.
This technology creates a powerful tool for communication, which can
persuade an adjustor at mediation to offer more than he originally
contemplated, or which can be used to ensure that a jury has a full
understanding of the elements of proof which Mr. Baker’s client must
prove in order to obtain a favorable outcome at trial.
Benjamin A. Baker’s commitment to state of the art technology will ensure that
your case is presented in the most effective manner possible, thereby
maximizing the prospects for a successful resolution of your case.
