The trailblazing founding partner of the female-owned family law firm, Meyer, Olson, Lowy & Meyers, LLP (MOLM), Lisa Helfend Meyer is a commanding force within the legal profession, a successful businesswoman, and a passionate advocate for the rights of children and parents. With grit, gumption, and a never-give-up attitude, she leads the largest family law firm in Los Angeles. Meyer takes on challenging cases other attorneys reject and mentors young attorneys – all while earning a national reputation as an expert in complex custody and financial matters and as a skilled courtroom lawyer. Her clients include members of the entertainment and financial industries, business leaders, professional athletes, and their spouses. In both her professional and personal life, children’s issues are an area of profound interest to Meyer. Her experience raising an autistic child at a time when understanding of the disorder and resources for families were limited has made Meyer a tireless champion of special needs children and adults. News outlets such as the Associated Press, Los Angeles Times, TODAY show, CNN, Court TV and Fox News have quoted her as a legal expert and she was featured on Good Morning America in conjunction with her work on the precedent-setting Abbie Cohen Dorn case. Meyer is also a frequent contributor to the Huffington Post, blogging on marriage and divorce.
