“Everything ultimately comes down to communication, which is why I listen to clients and empower them to make decisions. My practice is built on relationships, and I’ve found a team approach is the most effective way to make a difference.”

Founding partner Dana Lowy represents high net worth men and women divorce cases in all types of family law matters, from Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements to marital dissolution actions, protecting her clients’ financial interests while also considering the emotional aspects that often arise.

Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements are a practice focus for Dana. She has guided multiple generations of dynastic families, high-profile entertainers, athletes, executives and remarried baby boomers in successful agreements to protect assets and honor their wishes in successfully negotiated agreements while focusing on the client’s individual goals and needs.

Los Angeles family law attorney Dana eases the path to agreement from the beginning, helping clients communicate with their partners about the process and identifying key areas of protections under California law. She often coordinates with her clients’ professional teams, such as business managers, advisors, accountants, and family offices, to ensure efficient and comprehensive strategies that result in fair and reasonable premarital agreements.

During her more than 30 years of family law practice, Dana strives to be the best family law attorney Los Angeles has to offer by managing the full range of family issues, from mediated high asset divorce settlements and/or resolution after contentious litigation, to post-divorce agreements and parentage actions. Dana uses her team-building and negotiating strengths in her leadership of the firm, the only female-founded family law firm in California.

Named among the “Top 50: 2019 Women Southern California Super Lawyers List,” Dana has helped imbue the firm with an inclusive and family-like camaraderie. Clients can expect a team of professionals committed to their case and the ability to connect with a familiar face on their matters. Dana customizes her discreet and personal approach to address clients’ unique concerns over their financial futures and families’ well-being. Valued for her direct style and realistic perspectives, she knows the decision to dissolve a marriage or partnership is never easy. Dana helps move clients through the transition with empathy and guidance, motivated by a belief in her clients’ right to be happy. Recently, along with Doreen Olson, Dana was elected as a nominee for the “Power Lawyer: Troubleshooter” by The Hollywood Reporter: 2023 Award and recognized in the Los Angeles Business Journal. Dana was selected for inclusion in the 2024 Lawdragon 500 Leading Family Lawyers. Dana was named as one of the 2024 Top 100 Lawyers in L.A. by the Los Angeles Business Journal.
