After a long, productive career with one of the nation’s leading law firms, Venable LLP, Constance Baker started her own solo practice, CH Baker Law,  in January 2014. The defining characteristic of Connie’s law practice has been and will continue to be long-standing relationships and deep understanding of clients’ needs in health and educational spheres.  In Healthcare  Law, Connie advises hospitals, health systems, physicians and physician group practices, medical staffs and pharmacies in regulatory compliance, medical staff and physician credentialing issues, peer review and quality assurance best practices, reporting obligations, compliance, Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act best practices, and state and federal investigations. In Independent School Law, Connie’s clients include independent schools, a regional association of independent schools and school coalitions.  Connie formerly served as an Assistant Attorney General and prosecutor of the Maryland Board of Physicians.

Connie has participated in hundreds of peer review and physician licensure proceedings, representing hospitals, physicians and medical staffs.  She also seeks creative resolutions that avoid lengthy and expensive due process hearings.  For a complete list, see  From 2000-2013, Connie served on the Board of Directors of HopeWell Cancer Support, Inc., a non-profit organization providing free support services to cancer patients and their families.  In October 2013, she was honored by HopeWell for 14 years of Board service.  She has also reviewed research proposals as a patient stakeholder for the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI).  Her experience as a breast cancer survivor adds another dimension to her patient perspective and volunteer activities.
