Assemblywoman Catharine Baker represented the Tri-Valley in the State Assembly from 2014 through 2018. During her legislative tenure, she developed a reputation as an independent, bipartisan voice in the Legislature. Her collaborative leadership made her one of the most effective members of the Assembly. She authored legislation creating the Valley Link rail project in the Tri-Valley, giving California students first priority in University of California admissions, improving access to higher education for veterans, and strengthening local school budget reserves.

I am a shareholder attorney with Hoge Fenton, a multi-service regional law firm with highly focused attorneys in a variety of practices. I work out of our Pleasanton office and lead our firm's Real Estate team.
My practice focuses on real estate disputes and litigation. I represent clients throughout Northern California, including individuals, families, trusts, real estate professionals, insurers, municipalities, and businesses of any size, private or public.
I am fundamentally a “dirt lawyer,” addressing wide-ranging issues involving real estate, and committed to solving problems and finding solutions for clients in real estate disputes and transactions.
