About Mauck & Baker, LLC
With years of experience representing churches and religious organizations, John Mauck and Richard Baker began a firm in 2001 to ensure religious freedom for their clients. Since then, Mauck & Baker has expanded with the addition of Whitman Brisky in 2005, adding business and commercial law, and Soo Yeon Lee in 2019, providing a connection to the Korean community.
Mauck & Baker now serves individuals, families, businesses, nonprofits, and religious institutions in a comprehensive range of legal services. Each client is given the personal attention of a partner, along with the assistance of other attorneys and paralegals to provide efficiency and reduction of costs. We are all followers of Jesus and pray for our clients on a regular basis.
What Makes Us Unique
Mauck & Baker is nationally known for supporting religious liberty and its work in passing the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act of 2000 (RLUIPA), ensuring protection for churches and religious institutions by banning restrictive zoning laws.
Our attorneys are allied with Alliance Defending Freedom and active members of the Christian Legal Society. These partnerships allow us to be most effective in our defense of religious liberty.
In the past, the attorneys at Mauck & Baker hosted a radio program called Lawyers for Jesus on AM 1160 (WYLL) from 2016-2020, which is still available as a podcast.
Mauck & Baker leads a Bible Study every Friday at noon at 1 N LaSalle on the 25th floor. All are welcome!
