Patrick V. Baker, Esq.

Muscle Man and Sports Fanatic

Patrick BakerPatrick first developed a love and passion for the law as a young boy, often following his Daddy, Hugh G. Baker, Jr. to court. In 2000, Patrick fulfilled a lifelong dream by becoming an attorney alongside his father!

During the early years of his practice, Patrick established a successful criminal law practice, based largely upon his confidence and results in high-intensity Jury Trials. Patrick enjoyed helping clients with serious legal needs, while also assisting clients to establish stability in their often challenging lives.  In addition, Patrick devoted countless hours to several non-profits throughout the City of Indianapolis, recognizing that his charge extends well beyond the office setting.

Patrick and his beautiful wife, Ashley, married in 2005 and were blessed with two children, Lucy (2006) and Hughie (2007).  Since becoming a husband and father, Patrick has become a devoted coach in youth sports as he remains involved in the community.  While Patrick continues to enjoy assisting clients in need with criminal matters, he has expanded his focus to helping accident victims to heal and be justly compensated for their injuries.

Patrick is thrilled to be involved with a neighborhood law practice as he and Ashley, our Practice Director, live close to the office, and are active members at Christ the King Catholic School and Church.
