JOSHUA L. BAKER
KANSAS CITY ATTORNEY
Joshua L. (“Josh”) Baker is a seasoned litigator with experience in both the criminal and civil realms of the law. As a former prosecutor who specialized in DUI and traffic criminal matters, he established his knowledge of the intricacies of courtroom advocacy and the needs of those affected by wrongdoing. After leaving criminal prosecution, Josh practiced civil defense where he learned the inner workings of insurance companies and their tactics in attempting to resolve cases for as little as possible. Called to return to help those in need, he joined Sanders.Law to represent individuals facing the most difficult times of their lives. Utilizing his skills in advocacy, coupled with his knowledge of civil defense, he now zealously fights for the best outcome for his clients.
Josh is empathetic to his client’s needs and works diligently to ensure that their interests are adequately represented in front of judge and jury. His passion is helping his clients navigate the perplexing legal process by answering their questions and taking a pragmatic and driven approach to each case.
Born and raised in the Kansas City metropolitan area, Josh spent his early years developing his skills in advocacy by participating in speech and debate programs in high school. Following his graduation from the University of Missouri – Kansas City with his degree in English, he was a high school speech and debate teacher and head coach. Following two years of teaching, he pursued his lifelong dream of becoming a lawyer and, in 2019, graduated from the University of Missouri – Kansas City with his degree in law.
Following his graduation from law school, Josh was an assistant prosecutor in Christian County, MO, and Platte County, MO where he spent nearly every day in the courtroom handling a wide variety of criminal matters. After leaving criminal practice, he joined an insurance defense firm to learn the minds of the attorneys and adjusters he now negotiates, mediates, and litigates against. Wanting to help people, not corporations, Josh joined Sanders. Law to follow his calling and represent those affected by injustice while holding those responsible accountable for their actions.
Josh is married to the love of his life and has two children. An Eagle Scout, when not in the office or courtroom, is often found enjoying the outdoors with his family, fly fishing, sport shooting, or hiking and camping with a good cigar in hand.
