New Jersey Family Law and Estate Lawyers

Helping you Maintain Your Sanity During a Trying Time

Attorneys Who Are Prepared for Anything

Some lawyers are solely litigators and some lawyers are solely mediators. The best lawyers are capable of achieving victory in both arenas. As founder of the Baker Legal Group, Marisa Baker endorses a philosophy of amicable resolution – whenever possible – while incorporating zealous advocacy fueled by her background in litigation. Being an experienced litigator allows her to negotiate from a position of strength.

What Our Clients Have to Say

“Marisa represented me in my complex international child abduction and divorce case. Personally she led me through one of the most tumultuous and stressful times of my life. She successfully brought my daughter back to America and reunited us. Marisa is a fantastic lawyer who is competent, reliable, and hard working. She is a lawyer who listens to your concerns and cares about your legal situation. She always responded back to me in a timely manner and guided me through every step of the way. She understood my financial hardship, she made sure that I was getting everything that I was entitled to, and protected me down to each detail of the divorce. Most of all, I’m forever grateful for all of her hard work, support, and dedication, so I can have my daughter back in my life. Every moment I have with my daughter, I can thank Marisa.”

Marisa is extremely knowledgeable and caring, she goes above and beyond expectations. She helped me through divorce proceedings and separating assets, I was so thankful to have her on my side. If you're looking for a lawyer that will put your interests first, then look no further.


Marisa has been with me from the beginning (5 years now) since even before opening BLG LLC. Beyond her legal expertise, she has always given me clear, wise advice on how to handle every issue that I've faced. On top of that, she is ethical and fair to a "T" -- I've never doubted for an instance that she had anything but my best interests at heart. And you won't be nickel-and-dimed during your time as her client. She is a fair-biller and is hyper aware of the costs associated with drawn-out legal disputes. Indeed, she will ALWAYS suggest the least-billable hour option first. Least expensive is not always best if you've hired an attorney eager for billable hours, so keep that in mind when hiring an attorney. Another important feature when searching for an attorney is that they are easily available. Even though she is busy, Marisa will make sure she finds the time to promptly answer your questions and concerns (an issue I had with a previous attorney, unfortunately). In the end, if you're looking for a knowledgeable, fair and honest family law attorney, who will fight like hell for your best interests, you can do no better than Marisa.
