J. Baker Cleveland III

Phone: 864-878-1184

In addition to his official duties, Baker has volunteered his service as the Public Member of the Board of Registration of Engineers and Land Surveyors with LLR since 2014, is a member of the Haynsworth-Perry Inn of Court, and is currently serving as President of the Pickens County Bar Association, a position he was elected to by his peers in the legal community.

Baker approaches legal challenges with a unique breadth and perspective. He offers the analytical, detail-oriented problem solving skills he developed working in engineering combined with his immense trial experience to get the best possible result for his clients, whether it be a complicated real estate issue or an adversarial matter.

Since journeying into private practice, Baker has taken pride in helping hundreds of clients who were stuck in difficult legal situations, and often obtained results better than they imagined. He has navigated countless complicated probate administrations, negotiated favorable outcomes for clients charged with crimes ranging from speeding to attempted murder, successfully argued and prevailed against a major corporation in civil court, unraveled seemingly impossible real estate title issues, developed custom-tailored estate plans for individual clients’ specific wishes, and had charges expunged from client’s criminal records they resolved they would be saddled with for life.
