C.J. Baker represents victims with serious injuries and he won’t let any corporation or insurance company stop his clients from getting complete justice. He has won millions of dollars for victims of 18-wheeler crashes, oilfield equipment failures, offshore platform explosions, and defective medical devices.
“The courtroom is the only place where everyone—rich or poor, young or old—can get justice for their injuries,” C.J. says. “So I prepare every case to take it to the courtroom.” C.J. also understands how injuries can hurt an entire family. “I’ve seen firsthand how injuries put someone’s life into a tailspin. They can’t work because of the pain. They can’t pay their bills because they can’t work. That damage hurts relationships and causes depression and anxiety. An injury harms the whole person. That is why I use every tool in the law to get as much compensation as possible, as fast as possible.”
Before joining Armstrong Lee & Baker LLP, C.J. practiced with excellent injury lawyers handling catastrophic injuries and national litigation against medical device companies. Before that he worked at one of the world’s largest law firms representing companies in multi-million dollar business disputes.
C.J. graduated summa cum laude from Texas Tech University School of Law in 2016. He was an editor of the Texas Tech Law Review and a top national trial and moot-court advocate. He graduated Order of the Coif and Order of Barristers. He also interned for a federal judge.
Outside the office, C.J. lives in central Houston with his wife, Shelley, and their daughter, Naomi. The Bakers are members at Houston’s City Church. C.J. is also active in the Houston Bar Association, the Texas Trial Lawyers Association, the Texas Young Lawyer’s Association, and the American Association for Justice.
