Upon graduation, Mitch Baker returned to his hometown and opened a general practice.

He eventually expanded his personal injury practice and opened offices in Wilmington, Elizabethtown, Shallotte and Fayetteville.
During the course of his career, Baker has tried in excess of 100 civil cases to verdict and has handled many more cases that have been settled on the “courthouse steps.” His extensive experience includes the representation of clients in both State and Federal Courts from the trial level to the appellate level.
In addition to the personal injury practice, Mitch Baker calls upon his education as a Series 7 stockbroker and as a licensed life insurance agent to represent clients who have been victims of investment fraud. Mitch also offers estate planning services to the citizens of southeastern North Carolina including wills, powers of attorney, healthcare powers of attorney, living wills and other estate planning documents. He is a member of the Board of Governors of the North Carolina Advocates for Justice. He is recognized as one of the leading authorities in the state on insurance law and is a frequent speaker at seminars on that subject and on personal injury and trial techniques.
