Meyer, Olson, Lowy & Meyers backgrounder


It is the pre-eminent female-owned family law firm in the United States.

Indeed, Los Angeles-based Meyer, Olson, Lowy and Meyers’ (MOLM) case success, billings, reputation all say “it’s so.”

Headed by one of the country’s pioneering women barristers, Lisa Helfend Meyer, who has set the tone for tens of thousands of female attorneys across the country.  Meyer was one of the first women in the U.S. to head a major family law firm.

Her engaging demeanor belies the battles she has fought to make it possible for women to enter the legal profession in larger numbers than ever before.  “I was in the right place at the right time when the old guard and the old boys clubs’ weren’t meeting the needs of a changing world in the area of family law.

“They didn’t want to hear what clients were saying.  They weren’t receptive to client needs,” says Meyer.

Through Meyer’s efforts over the past three decades, the door has been open wide enough to allow more young women to now enter family law.

Meyer admits, “Yes, we’re proud to be one of the top female-owned family law firms and yes we’re proud of what we bring to the table as women – sensitivity, compassion, emotional attunement.

“What we’re most proud of is that regardless of our gender as lawyers, we turn impossible cases around for our clients and ultimately win.”

Winning the impossible.  Meyer, Olson, Lowy and Meyers has been doing it for 20 years.  Specializing in high-asset divorce, child custody issues, domestic partnerships, paternity and adoption matters, MOLM prides itself on its extensive client list of both men and women.  A client list populated by those who are looking for the same extraordinary emotional attunement lacking in most firms combined with the aggressiveness need to win in court.

The firm’s clientele includes members of the entertainment industry, sports figures, business managers, entertainment/sports agents, corporate CEOs, doctors, judges, attorneys, as well as non-professionals.

Spearheaded by a team of four dynamic women partners – Meyer, Doreen Olson, Dana Lowy and Felicia Meyers – MOLM has been an influential force on every cutting-edge issue involving divorce, high-conflict custody disputes including but not limited to interstate child custody conflicts and same sex relationships, complex and significant asset characterization, valuation and division and pre-and post-nuptial agreements.
