Graham Baker has more than fifteen years’ experience in civil tort litigation. Graham grew up in the piney woods and bayous of Louisiana. He received his bachelor’s degree in English from Texas State University and his Juris Doctor from St. Mary’s University School of Law.
Graham has won jury verdicts for persons and companies across Texas. Practicing primarily in areas of tort defense and commercial litigation, his experience includes the representation of an electric utility in complex litigation arising from the most destructive wildfire in Texas’ history; a restaurant accused of serving toxic shellfish; a railroad contractor following a derailment; and commercial drivers and their companies accused of negligence. He has also represented candidates who challenged election results, and taxpayers who sued to stop public finance schemes. He has briefed or argued appeals before half of the state’s appellate courts, the Supreme Court of Texas, and the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.
Graham has been awarded Martindale-Hubbell’s highest rating — AV-Preeminent — based upon selection by his peers. As an adjunct professor at St. Mary’s University School of Law, he taught legal research and writing for seven years. Graham began his career in the law as a briefing attorney to the Hon. Sandee Bryan Marion of Texas’ Fourth Court of Appeals.
Before coming to the law, Graham was a newspaper reporter, photographer, volunteer firefighter, and advocate for the mentally ill.
Graham is admitted to practice in Texas; the federal Western and Southern districts of Texas; and the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.
