Biography

John Baker joined Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers in early 2018. He was born and raised in Norfolk and graduated from Norfolk Collegiate School.

After high school, John attended Hampden-Sydney College, where he was a Venable Scholar and graduated cum laude in 2006. John represented his class in the Student Senate each year at Hampden-Sydney, and he served as its chairman during his senior year. John also received the James Madison Public Service Certificate and was a member of the Society of 1791, Hampden-Sydney’s leadership organization.

John attended the University of Mississippi School of Law, where he was a member of Phi Delta Phi, and graduated cum laude in 2010. John met his wife, Kate, at Ole Miss. She is also an attorney and works as a lobbyist for the Virginia Retail Federation.

After passing the bar exam in 2010, John worked for a local insurance defense firm for seven years. He appeared in courts all over the Commonwealth of Virginia and represented a number of insurance companies during this time.

John has been selected as a Rising Star by Virginia Super Lawyers since 2015 and was honored by his peers as a 2022 Top Lawyer by Coastal Virginia Magazine and CoVaBIZ. He is a former member of the James Kent American Inn of Court. John and his partners at Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers regularly teach continuing legal education (CLE) courses on civil litigation and personal injury practice.

John is heavily involved in the Hampton Roads community. He served as President of the Virginia Club from 2020-2022. He attends Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church, is a member of the Society of Colonial Wars in the State of Virginia, and served on the Norfolk Collegiate Alumni Board from 2011 to 2016. When he is not working, John enjoys spending time with Kate and their son and daughter, running, playing squash, and boating.
