Listed below are our current practices of law in the state of Michigan.

Call 269-686-9448 for any questions you may have, or for any additional help.

REMAIN SILENT in the event you are arrested. Situations occur. Whether intentionally or mistakenly, some of us end up on the wrong side of the law. And when we do, guilt or innocence is not always our main concern. More often we are concerned with getting a fair and impartial trial. Or we may simply seek the best outcome possible for the circumstances.

Whatever your specific case is, we are well equipped to fight for you.

REMAIN SILENT in the event you are arrested. And remember, your first and most effective defender is YOU.  If you find yourself in trouble with the law, it is important that you invoke and maintain your United States Constitutional 5th Amendment Right to REMAIN SILENT.  Do not try to explain yourself and do not feel it is your duty or in your best interest to answer the questions of law enforcement officials.

You may only be serving to complicate your case.  You cannot be legally punished for remaining silent.  This is your fundamental right.

STATE CLEARLY YOUR DESIRE TO REMAIN SILENT AND HAVE AN/YOUR ATTORNEY PRESENT BEFORE ANSWERING ANY QUESTIONS.

Call The Law Offices of RJ Baker & Associates, PLLC at 269-686-9448 and let us help.

Wrongful death occurs from a variety of reasons, e.g., car accidents, medical malpractice, neglect, fault of another, work place deaths, nursing home accidents and/or failure to properly train employees, and so on and so forth. The reasons are endless.

Michigan's Wrongful Death Statute, MCL 600.2922, is one of the most comprehensive, victim (or family/friends of victim) oriented Wrongful Death statutes in the nation. Our firm recently settled a wrongful death case for approximately 50 times that which a professional wrongful death law firm initially assessed at a total value of $10,000. In that particular case, our firm went up against four large, well-seasoned, big-city law firms and beat them all. Such an enormous award did not surprise any members of our staff; rather, large client awards are consistent with the firm's goal of seeking and obtaining the absolute maximum amount of money from the facts of the case. Client satisfaction is a mandatory element of professionalism at R.J. Baker & Associates, PLLC.

Our firm has earned a solid reputation in this area of the law. If a wrongful death is suspected, contact a member of our staff immediately. Time can be crucial. The Statute of Limitations begins to run from the moment of death, and memories of witnesses and evidence can be lost over time. A wrongful death claim needs to be processed as soon after the death as possible. Don’t hesitate – litigate.

personalinjSerious personal injuries can affect your life drastically.  From paralysis to losing the ability to work, getting hurt can really suck.  If you are injured and it is not your fault, you may be entitled to compensation for the detirioration in your circumstances.

As with most cases, time is a critical factor when seeking compensation for your injuries.  Witnesses may forget details, evidence can degrade, and your right to sue can even expire if too much time passes between the time of occurence and when a complaint is filed with the court.

If you have been injured and want your case evaluated at no charge, please call The Law Offices of RJ Baker & Associates, PLLC at 269-686-9448 and let us help.

One of the best defenses to a Driving Under the Influence charge (or Operating While Intoxicated) is to not do it.  However, in the real world, we know these situations do occur.  And we are here to help.  Our firm has extensive experience in defending clients charged with DUI.

But before you must seek assistance in defending against a charge, please read and be aware of your Rights & Responsibilities in case of a traffic stop.

Mounting credit card debt, unexpected medical bills, the threat of foreclosure or repossession can be overwhelming.  Creditors calling non-stop, bills flooding your mailbox, all of this can get downright depressing.  There is a solution.  The federal government, through Chapter 7, 11, 12 or 13 of Title 11 of the United States Code (federal bankruptcy law), provides you with powerful options for relief.

Did you know that once you file for bankruptcy, all creditors must cease all attempts to collect a debt?  This includes

  • Harassing phone calls, letters, or other contacts
  • Garnishments and other property seizures
  • Repossesions
  • Foreclosures

If you are underwater on your mortgage and want to explore your options of keeping your home, we can help.  If you are recently un- or underemployed and extremely behind on bills, we can help with that, too.

Among other things, this firm is a debt relief agency. We help people and businesses file for bankruptcy under the Bankruptcy Code.
