Join the Newnan-Coweta Chamber and presenting sponsor Progressive Heating, Air, and Plumbing as we welcome Nina Markette Baker, the first female superior court judge to be appointed to the Coweta Judicial Circuit.
"Markette Baker is an excellent litigator who is admired and respected by her peers throughout Georgia, and over the years, she has shown remarkable leadership as Troup County Solicitor- General," Governor Brian Kemp said of the appointment. "By appointing Markette to the Coweta Judicial Circuit Superior Court, I am confident that she will seamlessly adapt to her new role and serve Georgians well for many years to come."
Baker is a graduate of Converse College and Mississippi College School of Law, and was elected as Troup County Solicitor-General in 2004, 2008, 2012, and 2016. Before serving as Solicitor-General, she practiced bankruptcy and family law at Whatley, Baker & Baker, P.C., served as an associate municipal judge in LaGrange, represented families on the Troup County Juvenile Indigent Panel, and prosecuted misdemeanor cases as an Assistant Solicitor-General in Troup County.
In 2017, Baker was named Georgia Solicitor-General of the Year by the Georgia Association of Solicitors-General, and, in 2006, Georgia Trend Magazine named her to its Top 40 under 40. Baker is actively involved in organizations across the state, including the State Bar of Georgia's Board of Governors, Georgia Association of Solicitors-General, LaGrange Rotary Club, St. Mark's Episcopal Church in LaGrange, and Twin Cedars Youth Services, Inc.
