"Family lawyers play a pivotal role in their clients' lives, and it's satisfying to represent a person in a difficult time. I focus on setting up my clients to thrive in their post-marriage lives."

Felicia R. Meyers specializes in high asset and high conflict divorce and custody matters. Felicia’s work with the firm focuses primarily on complex litigation and trials, leveraging her extensive experience as a civil litigator prior to MOLM. She has led successful legal efforts relating to cutting edge family law issues such as international move-away cases, custody cases and high assets cases.

Over the past several years, Felicia has been involved in diverse, complex trial in courtrooms across California. She was one of the lead attorneys in the case J.M. v. G.H. (2014) 228 Cal.App.4th 925, as modified on denial of rehearing (Sept. 5, 2014), review denied (October 22, 2014), which was an international move-away case where the Court of Appeal upheld the trial court’s ruling allowing mother to move with the minor child to Israel.

In a trial in downtown Los Angeles, the issue before the Court – the validity of an Iranian Judgment of Dissolution – was very unusual and had international significance. Both parties were Iranian, had married in Iran and resided here. The wife went back to Iran, where she filed for divorce, waived her right to receive spousal support, and then filed the legal judgment in the Iranian Court without telling the husband.

After the husband filed for divorce in California, the wife took the position that the Iranian divorce she obtained was invalid and requested spousal support from the California Court. Felicia most recently represented the husband at trial in which the Court deemed the Iranian Judgment of Divorce was valid, denying the wife’s claims for support. Very recently, Felicia was the lead trial lawyer in a case of first impression in IRMO Macilwaine (2018) 26 Cal.App.5th514. The Court of Appeal held that stock options must be recognized as income for purposes of child support when conferred upon and available to the employee, regardless of whether the parent elects to exercise the option and sell the shares of stock.

Ms. Meyers has been selected as a Super Lawyer for the past 10 years. She is the former Chairperson of the Family Law Section of the Beverly Hills Bar Association and recipient of the President’s Award for outstanding work as Chair of the family law section.
