Tiffany M. Baker
Tiffany Baker is an attorney who has devoted her entire legal career to the community in which she was born and raised — the Big Bend area. Tiffany received her Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of Miami in 2007, and her Juris Doctorate degree from Howard University School of Law in 2012.
Over the years, she has gained vast legal experience in both criminal and civil law. While starting out as an Assistant Public Defender, Tiffany developed her passion for trial advocacy. Since then, she has tried multiple life felonies to verdict, including attempted first-degree murder, capital sexual battery, and homicide. She has been deemed sufficiently qualified to serve as Second Chair in a death penalty case and in that case, she represented a defendant accused of quadruple homicide. She has represented juveniles, the mentally incapacitated, and has provided pro bono service to help Veterans in the Big Bend Community. In addition to the depth of her experience on the criminal side, Tiffany worked as an Associate Attorney for, then, Barrett, Fasig & Brooks. During her time there, Tiffany gained tremendous personal injury experience by representing her injured clients and fighting to ensure that they were made whole. She litigated personal injury claims, negotiated, and settled disputes with insurance companies, and prepared and filed civil lawsuits on behalf of clients.
Upon leaving the firm, she launched her own private practice where she practiced Criminal Defense and Family Law. In the area of family law, she has handled contested divorces, parenting plans, and injunctions. Tiffany also served as the Owner and Chief Executive Officer of Forever Legendary Sports Marketing and Management, LLC., a company which successfully recruited, marketed, and managed athletes from Africa, and arranged tryouts with MLS, NASL and PDL teams.
Tiffany resides in Tallahassee with her husband, Leonard Carper, and their two children Phoenix Ray and Lenox Luna. She is a proud member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Chi Upsilon Omega Chapter, a subscribing life member of the NAACP, a member of the Tallahassee Barristers Association, the Florida Association for Women Lawyers, the Petunia Garden Circle, the Big Bend Minority Chamber of Commerce, the Florida Justice Association, and other civic organizations.
