About Baker, Burton & Lundy

A Small Firm that Packs a Big Punch

In 1976, Brad N. Baker and Kent Burton founded Baker & Burton after graduating from UCLA Law School under the Legal Aid Society in Venice, California. The firm moved to Hermosa Beach and later became Baker, Burton & Lundy after Albro Lundy joined the firm and became a partner in 1997. The firm grew in 2011 with the addition of trial attorney Evan Koch, followed by Teresa Klinkner, of counsel, and Clint Wilson in the transactional department, and Christine Daniels, who works with Brad Baker in estate planning and probate. The firm has a longtime support staff of other attorneys, paralegals and legal assistants. Our main areas of focus are:

This low turnover creates an incredibly competent and capable staff. Our team values the time and effort required to produce long-term, quality legal work. This is reflected in our decades-long relationships with clients, ranging from international clients like Skechers to the Hantzarides family, a local Manhattan Beach business owner. On top of legal work, Baker, Burton & Lundy finds time to work with and for our community, coach our children’s sports teams, and make it to the finals four of our last six years in Lawyer’s League Football.
