Profile of Lori Loo


I have been an attorney for over 25 years. I have practiced law, and been a partner in two of the best family law firms in the city and gained valuable experience and expertise in the practice of family law.


I have represented celebrity clients, high net worth clients, and also clients with more modest wealth. I represent both men and women, fathers and mothers, and both the “in-spouse” and the “out-spouse.” I do not represent a client unless I believe in him or her.


I have experience in high-stakes litigation in different counties of Southern California, and am respected by judicial offers for my expertise, competence and integrity.


I have settled countless cases that seemed “impossible” to settle. I seek resolution through settlement, but I am still prepared to litigate if that is what the circumstances dictate.


In 2004, I was voted a Rising Star, as a top lawyer under 40 years of age, by attorneys in the family law legal community. From 2005 to 2017, I was named a “Southern California Super Lawyer in Family Law,” including being named among the Top 50 women lawyers in several years, and Top 100 attorneys in Southern California in 2010. I received the highest rating (“A-V”) from the Martindale Hubble Registry.Hubble Registry.


I received my undergraduate degree in Economics in 1986 from U.C. Berkeley.
I received my law degree from University of Southern California Law School.


I have been divorced and understand what it is like to be “the client” and to make the transition to a new life. Also, I have shared custody arrangement of two children, so I understand what it’s like to be a parent of children whose parents are not together.


I have set my hourly rate below the “going rate” for attorneys of my experience and caliber. When I opened my law practice, I chose to set my rate lower to give me a competitive edge in the selection of counsel.
