February 28, 2021 marks the 10th Anniversary of Alison Baxter Herlihy P.C. These past 10 years have flown by! We have grown so much over the years. Back in 2011, Alison rented a one room office at 401 Church Street, but now we have our own building at 1751 Dauphin Street and are a three-person office. Heather Dennis is our legal assistant/office manager – Heather keeps everything running here efficiently and is our first line of excellent customer service for our clients. Walter Gewin joined the firm as an Associate Attorney in September 2020 and is already an invaluable team member who helps us serve even more Family Law clients.
I want to personally express how grateful I am to my family, friends and colleagues for their support over the years and to all of my clients for trusting to me to handle some of the most important and sensitive legal matters there are – their families and their children. Family Law gives you a unique opportunity and responsibility to help people resolve complex changes in their personal lives, and I try to appreciate that every day. Thank you from all of us at Alison Baxter Herlihy, P.C! We hope the next 10 years bring continued growth and opportunities to impact our community and serve our clients.
We just received this new 5 star client review on Google:
I went through a long and difficult contested divorce with no minor children. Alison and her team were so good at advising me throughout the process. They were patient and understanding with any issue I had. If I had questions or concerns, Alison was able to answer and put me at ease. She has a gift for being the right balance of firm and compassionate. In preparing for trial, she was knowledgeable, skilled and thorough. I would recommend her and her team to anyone for any area of family law.

At this time, Alison is the only registered domestic relations mediator in Mobile County, Alabama.
Alison is very much looking forward to wrapping up her first ten years of law practice and adding the service of mediation as decade number two commences. Resolution of complex changes beings here!
