Who is Prisoner Connections, LLC?
My name is Ron Baker. It has been my experience over the last 25 years serving prisoner needs with paralegal support in the area of post conviction law that inmates are often given poor legal assistance by attorneys and/or law clerks who may be well-meaning, but who do not have adequate experience in criminal appellate and post conviction law. Admittedly, Florida has some of the most complex legal procedures in the nation regarding post conviction law, so navigating these rules is often very difficult. Regardless of the reasoning, the prisoner who receives substandard legal representation, and their families, are the ones who suffer. Some of the finest people I have ever met, are currently imprisoned for unlawful convictions, excessive sentences and overlooked exculpatory facts. This situation has impassioned me to create Prisoner Connections, LLC; I chose the name intentionally. I created this company to "connect prisoners" to lawyers I know to be highly competent in the specific areas of law applicable to prisoners' needs. I endeavor to provide superior paralegal service to our client attorneys, enhancing the client's ability to provide superior professional representation to those under sentence to prison or on probation at very competitive fees. However, we are not attorneys nor a lawyer referral service; for that you should contact the Florida Bar.
- Ronald P. Baker, President and CEO of Prisoner Connections, LLC
Mr. Baker was incarcerated in Florida for over 25 years. During his journey, he became impassioned with the law, became a law clerk, obtained a paralegal degree and assisted hundreds of prisoners to get out of prison, get new trials and reduce their sentences. With 26 years of criminal post conviction and appellate litigation experience, and over 60 published decisions to his credit, he was released in 2013 with the goal to form a company designed to connect the prison population in Florida to competent, affordable legal representation. That goal has now been accomplished.
