our firm

In 1998 a group of eight lawyers left a large Baltimore firm to form Baxter Baker.   Our goal was to offer sophisticated and cost-effective legal services in a personalized manner; in other words, big firm representation in a small firm setting.

Today Baxter Baker is a mid-sized, multidisciplinary law firm representing local and national clients throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.  Our attorneys routinely practice in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia, with offices in both Baltimore and Annapolis, Maryland.  Our practice areas include medical malpractice defense, health care, business, complex litigation, estates/trusts, government relations, administrative and regulatory law, and tax.

The goals that triggered the formation of Baxter Baker continue today as part of the firm’s culture.  We provide top-level legal representation traditionally delivered by large law firms at a reasonable cost and with a personal touch. Baxter Baker’s attorneys, with their diverse expertise, work together to develop creative and personal solutions for our clients.  From litigation to business planning to legislative and regulatory matters, we offer a full range of legal solutions

By continuing to focus on our initial mission and emphasizing this team approach, Baxter Baker has developed a diverse clientele and earned the respect of its peers.  Our attorneys include Fellows of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of North America’s most prestigious legal associations, and members of the American Board of Trial Advocates and International Association of Defense Counsel.  Our attorneys have been named to the Maryland Super Lawyers and Best Lawyers in America for many years.  We are regularly invited to teach and lecture, regionally and nationally, on a variety of legal topics, including corporate formation, litigation, estate planning, tax, medical malpractice, risk management, and regulatory and licensing matters.

For health care providers, insurers, business owners, shareholders, and entrepreneurs seeking legal expertise, Baxter Baker is uniquely equipped to handle all of our clients’ needs with a personal touch.
