Laura Baker, daughter of Jean and Darrell Baker, recently moved back to Lawrenceburg to open the Baker Law Office, PLLC, she announced in a news release.
Baker earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in political science from Eastern Kentucky University and went on to graduate with honors from the Brandeis School of Law at the University of Louisville in 2007.
After graduation, she practiced in Louisville with Woodward, Hobson & Fulton, where she focused principally on litigation.
The firm merged with Dinsmore & Shohl LLP in late 2009, which more than quadrupled the size of the firm, the news release said. She stayed for the next year before returning to Lawrenceburg in October 2010.
“I really enjoyed my time in Louisville,” Baker said. “I practiced with exceptional attorneys and had clients I respected. Importantly, I was able to practice litigation on a large scale and to develop my skills as an attorney. It was a terrific experience.”
However, coming back to a small town was always in the back of her mind.
“Woodward was a great place to practice law, and I learned so much from my practice there,” she said. “But I really wanted to have a small town practice where I could help people with their concerns and the individual obstacles in their lives. And practicing in my hometown has been a bonus. After all, practicing law is about people, and I wanted to help my people.”
The transition from a large firm of more than 450 attorneys to her own practice has been effortless, according to the news release.
“I relish coming to work each day,” Baker said. “Working with Betty and Jerry Springate and Robert Wiedo is wonderful. They are very warm and generous people and attorneys, and they have made my transition so easy.”
And returning home to Lawrenceburg has been just as seamless, she said.
“I love going into stores and seeing old neighbors and friends,” Baker said. “Of course, shopping now takes a lot more time because I stop and talk so much. It’s been so wonderful seeing old friends and making new ones.”
In short, Baker says she is excited to be back home and knows that her previous work experience will help her serve clients in Lawrenceburg and surrounding areas in all areas of law.
She and her dog, Paxton, are settling in to their “new” home on South Main, which is just a short walk to her office. Her office is located in the Springate Law Office, 135 South Main Street.
