About Baker Sterchi Cowden & Rice LLC
Our firm has some choice words that we believe tell our story, and we do not use them lightly. The businesses that have partnered with us for more than 35 years know that the words efficient, dedicated, superior service and cost consciousness are not empty platitudes when used to describe our legal services.
Recognized nationally in defense litigation, Baker Sterchi Cowden & Rice is a Midwest firm founded in 1982 by four attorneys.
