Why Choose Carly Baker
I knew I wanted to pursue a career in family law early in law school. With my background in service and community outreach, I knew I could best use my strong interpersonal and communication skills to work with clients who are going through tough times in their lives. I was very involved in pro bono opportunities during my time at the University of North Carolina School of Law, where I immediately gained experience with real clients.
After my first year of law school, I worked for a family law firm in my hometown of Jacksonville, North Carolina, where I learned how to work diligently toward a settlement while simultaneously preparing for a trial if needed. Additionally, I completed an externship at Legal Aid of North Carolina in Durham, working primarily on domestic violence cases to secure civil protective orders for victims and their children. Through this eye-opening experience, I realized my passion for being a zealous advocate for clients in crisis, both in the courtroom and in negotiations. It was during my internship at Wake County Family Court that I decided to practice in Raleigh. I not only fell in love with the city, but also the litigation side of family law.
