J. Bradley Baker
I have been in private practice for 19 years and a member of the South
Carolina Bar since 1995. During my time in private practice, I have regularly
represented those who have been seriously injured at work or due to the
negligence of others. In addition to Workers' Compensation and Civil
Matters, I regularly represent individuals who have been accused of a crime.
A large majority of my current practice is devoted to representing individuals
who have been injured on the job. I regularly appear before the South
Carolina Workers' Compensation Commission. My current practice also
involves defending individuals who have been charged with Driving Under
the Influence (DUI). I have successfully defended many DUI clients through
trial. Having previously served as a local municipal prosecutor I have
tried many DUI matters as a defense attorney and as a prosecutor. This
gives me significant and unique experience with DUI matters.
Prior to going into private practice, I was a law clerk to the Honorable
Edward B. Cottingham of the South Carolina Circuit Court Bench. In this
position I was able to view the State Court system from the bench and
learn how to get things accomplished.
In 2009 I opened J. Bradley Baker, LLC. I have been blessed in my practice
and find that a majority of my business comes from referrals from current
or former clients. I firmly believe that if I work hard for my clients
and treat them the way that I would want to be treated I will continue
to be successful. Prior to opening my own firm I worked for 5 1/2 years
at the Salley Law Firm in Lexington, SC. Prior to moving to Lexington,
I practiced for 7 years at the Law Office of D. Kenneth Baker, P.A. in
Darlington. In my practice I regularly appear in State Court and before
the South Carolina Workers Compensation Commission. My appearances range
from trials, motions to handling appellate arguments. I pride myself on
personal service. This involves communicating with my clients on a regular
basis and responding to their questions and concerns in a timely manner.
Should you have a Workers Compensation matter, a Personal Injury matter
or a Criminal Charge, I encourage you to contact me to see if I may assist
you with your situation. Our initial consultation is free of charge.
