History and Philosophy

Baldwin Sutphen & Frateschi, PLLC was formed from the merger of Baldwin & Sutphen, LLP  and the Frateschi Law Firm in 2018.  In 1996, Bob Baldwin and Jamie Sutphen, after practicing law extensively in the Central New York area in both larger and smaller firms founded Baldwin & Sutphen, LLP.  Bob and Jamie envisioned a law practice where the delivery of expert advice in a personalized setting would create a comfortable and productive atmosphere for both clients and attorneys. Charles “Casey” Sprock joined the firm in 2000 and became the firm’s third partner in 2003. Bill Drexler brought his years of legal experience to the firm in 2005.  In 2018, the opportunity for not only growth, but the merger of talents, experience and philosophy presented itself when Timothy Frateschi, Joseph Frateschi and John Brunetti joined the firm. Baldwin, Sutphen & Frateschi PLLC prides itself on its service to clients with competency and compassion. We work diligently to insure that  our clients receive the very best of professional and personal attention. When legal matters arise, whether simple or complex, we know that it can be a confusing and stressful time for clients.
