Our Associate Attorney

FOSS BAKER

ASSOCIATE ATTORNEY

Foss is an associate attorney with Downs Law where he focuses on handling civil litigation,  landlord/tenant and commercial collections. Prior to joining our firm, he gained hands-on experience as in-house counsel for Ancillary Legal Corporation and as a senior attorney at a prominent Atlanta bankruptcy firm.

 

An Atlanta native, Foss has wanted to be a lawyer since he was five years old, having learned about the profession from his attorney father. Even at a young age, he gained an appreciation for how the legal system can help resolve disputes and allow people to gain closure in difficult situations. Fast forward a few decades, Foss has learned that while being an attorney requires a lot of paperwork, he also loves that he can provide guidance to clients and see them through some of the more challenging parts of their lives. 

 

Foss earned his B.A. in Philosophy from Oglethorpe University and his J.D. with honors from Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School. He is a member of both the American and Georgia Bar Associations and gives back by spending some of his free time working with the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation.

 

In his spare time, he enjoys hanging out with his family and two lab mixes, using his green thumb to grow a variety of houseplants, baseball and reading. One day he hopes to explore Iceland too!
