Judge Baker will be well served by her 20 years of experience in the legal profession, including service as Troup County’s solicitor-general and, previously as an associate Municipal Court judge in the City of LaGrange. She is a valued member of the Board of Governors of the State Bar of Georgia.
With her acceptance of this appointment, Judge Baker demonstrates her ongoing commitment to serving the public and the justice system. We wish her well in this new capacity of judicial leadership.
