Lisa Winer is an experienced litigator and appellate attorney. From the outset, Ms. Winer has been focused on helping the vulnerable and weak in our community. She began her career in public service at the Attorney General’s office as a passionate advocate for children. Before joining the Olsman team, Ms. Winer worked to protect children who had been removed from their homes due to abuse and neglect. After seven years in the trial court system in Wayne County, Ms. Winer moved to the Michigan Court of Appeals, performing a research analysis and writing judicial opinions in cases involving step-parent adoption and termination of parental rights. She has experience protecting and fighting for the vulnerable and weak in our community. Her understanding and skill with written legal argument make her a formidable opponent in the courtroom. The knowledge she obtained in child protection cases is an invaluable resource to the clients she represents today. Moving from the public sector and non-profit sector to working in the private sector has strengthened her understanding of our justice system and how to prevail within it.
Outside the office, Ms. Winer is an active volunteer in her local Jewish community. She serves on the Board of Directors of Farber Hebrew Day School-Yeshivat Akiva, where she has implemented new fundraising and programming ideas. She also serves a member of the youth committee of Young Israel of Oak Park where she is an active volunteer helping oversee and implement programming and ideas for youth.
As a lawyer with many years of experience working on cases involving abuse and neglect, I understand the difficulties facing our most vulnerable citizens. Those in adult foster care homes, nursing homes and patients who have been mistreated need a zealous advocate who understands how to bring compelling arguments forward in the face of insurance companies who shift blame to the victim. I am a passionate advocate of justice for the vulnerable in our community. I will fight tirelessly for you.
