For highly responsive and knowledgeable representation on a wide range of divorce and family law issues, contact attorney Annette L. Baker Law Office. Have you or someone you know had an attorney who failed to return calls promptly? You have enough worries. We pride ourselves on listening to you, and return your phone calls. We need to know about your unique circumstances because the results of your case will depend heavily on your attorney’s understanding and ability to communicate the facts.
Annette Baker places the client's interests, goals, and confidence at the top of her priorities. By working with you to help define your family law problem, articulate your objectives and concerns, and develop a strategy for achieving a favorable result within the constraints of Massachusetts law, Annette Baker can choose from a variety of strategic and tactical options that will best reflect your specific circumstances and goals.
While divorce represents most of our firm's work, we also serve clients on issues as varied as guardianship of children, post-divorce contempt and modification actions, fathers' rights, stepparent adoption, or the special problems faced when their former spouses remove their children to another state. Our clientele is highly diverse, and includes business owners with asset valuation problems, high net-worth divorce clients with complicated tax questions, parents with child custody or support problems, military spouses, and persons involved on either side of domestic violence allegations.
Our clients value our ability to adapt our methods to their particular case. We achieve many favorable outcomes through negotiation, but whenever the prospects of an agreement break down, we have no hesitation at all about taking your case to court. The transition from an atmosphere of compromise to one of attack and defense can be abrupt, and our ability to handle this change can represent an important advantage to our clients.
We work in Beverly's Cummings Center, an award-winning restoration of the former United Shoe Machinery plant that is still known to many local residents as "the Shoe." Featuring free parking and easy access by both MBTA bus and North Shore commuter rail, the Cummings Center is very convenient for anyone arriving via Routes 1-A, 62, or 128. We accept all major credit cards. Above all, we emphasize the importance of keeping you well informed and closely engaged with the progress of your own case. Because so many of our clients have come to us because their former lawyers would not return their calls, poor communication is not a mistake that we are likely to make.
For additional information about the experience, energy, and concern for your welfare that we bring to our practice every day, contact the Beverly office of Law Office of Annette Baker Doolin.Read less

Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?
Here are a few to get you started:
- How long have you been in practice?
- How many cases like mine have you handled?
- How often do you settle cases out of court?
- What are your fees and costs?
- What are the next steps?
