Baker and Zimmerman is proud to announce that three attorneys in the firm, including both managing partners, have been included in the 2016 edition of “Super Lawyers”. This is the fifth consecutive year that Robert Baker and Robert Zimmerman have been selected to this prestigious group. Partner Joshua Frachtman has earned the prestigious honor of being a “Super Lawyers Rising Star”.
The mission of Super Lawyers is to bring visibility to attorneys who exhibit professional excellence. The attorney rating service recognizes outstanding lawyers from over 70 different practice areas based on a high degree of professional achievement and peer acknowledgement. Less than five percent of attorneys in the country are named Super Lawyers each year. Super Lawyers Rising Stars, found in a patented multiphase selection process, account for only 2.5 percent of attorneys in the state who are either 40 years old or younger, or have been practicing law for 10 years or less.
“We are very pleased that all of our hard work and dedication has been recognized by our peers. This reward is very gratifying”, said Robert Baker. “We look forward to continuing to do our very best every day and live up to the high standards of the Super Lawyers.”

About Baker and Zimmerman:
At Baker & Zimmerman, every employee is a dedicated member of the team whose primary concern is defending the injured and seeking justice on behalf of our clients. We understand that no two cases are alike; therefore, no two cases are prepared the same way.
Our trial attorneys handle negligence claims involving serious and sometimes catastrophic personal injuries and wrongful death. This includes personal watercraft accidents, automobile/truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, wrongful death claims, slip & fall accidents, cruise ship/boating accidents, products liability, insurance disputes/bad faith claims, drug/pharmaceutical claims, nursing home neglect cases, helicopter/plane accidents, dog bites and parasailing accidents.
We strongly believe that the key to a successful attorney/client relationship is communication. We pride ourselves in keeping our clients informed as to the progress of their cases and making ourselves available whenever necessary.
