Personal: Born and raised in La Grange, Texas, Laura M. "Laurie" Baker is a native Texan who found herself in North Carolina in 2004 to attend law school.
Education: Laurie is member of the 2002 graduating class of Emory University where she received her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science, with a minor in Sociology. Laurie attended law school at Campbell University's Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law and graduated in 2007. While in law school, Laurie quickly took a leadership role, by being elected as a student representative in the Student Bar Association, a Justice on the Honor Court, and Dean ("president") of the Delta Theta Phi Chapter at Campbell.
In addition to excelling in leadership, Laurie also displayed early promise as a litigator while in law school. Laurie, like Luke, was invited in her second year of law school to be a member of one of Campbell's mock trial teams, an honor typically reserved exclusively for third year law students. Upon graduation, Laurie was inducted into the prestigious Order of Barristers for her service to her alma mater and her having displayed excellence in the art of trial advocacy. While in law school Laurie also was asked to join one of Campbell's moot court teams and represented the school at the regional competition. Laurie was also an active member of the Delta Theta Phi Law Fraternity as well as being Dean for 2 years.
Professional: Prior to pursuing a career in law and after finishing her undergraduate degree, Laurie obtained her paralegal certificate from the University of North Texas and worked for 1 year as a legal project assistant at Fulbright & Jaworski, LLP in Austin, Texas. Following law school and after being licensed as an attorney, Laurie proudly served as an associate attorney at the law offices of Hartsell & Williams, P.A. in Concord, North Carolina where her skills as a trial lawyer and litigator were honed and finely tuned. Laurie left that practice amicably to join Luke at The Baker Law Firm, P.A. in July 2009.
Memberships: Laurie is member/licensee of the North Carolina State Bar and Judicial District 19A Bar. She is also an active member of the North Carolina Bar Association, North Carolina Advocates for Justice (formerly North Carolina Academy of Trial Lawyers), American Bar Association, and American Association for Justice (formerly American Trial Lawyers Association).
Community: Laurie is an active citizen in the Cabarrus County and Concord community. She is a member of the Cabarrus Rotary Club, a member of the Junior Charity League of Concord, and attends the First Presbyterian Church of Concord.
Family: Luke and Laura met in law school, where they were members of the same law fraternity (Delta Theta Phi) and were partners on the same mock trial team. The Bakers married in November of 2008 and welcomed their first child, Garrett Lee Baker into the world on November 29, 2009.
