Justice Baisley has had a long and distinguished legal career that includes substantial experience as both a judge and a litigator. As a Justice of the New York Supreme Court, Suffolk County for 25 years, Justice Baisley has presided over and settled more than a thousand cases, giving him a broad range of experience and knowledge across numerous case types including commercial, employment, insurance, labor law, matrimonial, medical malpractice, negligence, personal injury, premises liability, and real property.

Justice Baisley was elected to the Supreme Court, 10th Judicial District, Suffolk County, in 1997.  His time on the bench includes 17 years as the Supervising Judge of the Civil Trial courts in Suffolk County, while he simultaneously served as the Presiding Judge in the Trial Assignment Part (TAP).
