|Info||David Baria was born and raised on the Mississippi Gulf Coast in Jackson County. After growing up in Escatawpa and graduating from Moss Point High School, he attended the University of Southern Mississippi where he earned a degree in Criminal Justice. David later obtained a law degree from the University of Mississippi in 1990. |
After law school David took a job practicing law in Jackson. In 1991 he married his wife, the former Marcie Fyke, of Jackson. They had three children, Darden (now deceased), Merritt and Bess.
David established a successful law practice in Jackson and was the founding member of Baria, Fyke, Hawkins & Stracener. Over the years David had a varied practice that focused on representing people who had been denied insurance benefits. His practice also brought him into frequent contact with the lawmakers in Jackson and he was asked on several occasions to provide written opinions on various insurance issues as well as testimony before the legislature.
In early 2004, David fulfilled a life-long dream of returning to the Mississippi Gulf Coast and settled with his family in Bay Saint Louis. On August 29, 2005, like so many others here, David and his family lost their home and everything in it.
David is now the CEO of Rhino Construction and has been engaged in the construction/demolition business since Katrina.
