Anthony W. Lai: Real Lawyers Representing Your Needs

Anthony W. Lai

Los Angeles Family Law Attorney Attorney Anthony W. Lai

Ever since he was a young child, Attorney Anthony W. Lai had a deep sense of justice. If things were not fair or right, he was the first to speak up about it, often loudly. He always felt a duty to stand up for others, especially those who could not stand up for themselves. This passion for helping others is what drove him to become a lawyer.

Attorney Lai sees family law as a unique area of law because no other area encompasses the emotional turmoil that a high-conflict family proceeding can have. His approach to family law disputes – especially those involving custody issues – is to remove as much of the adversarial process as possible. Attorney Lai genuinely feels that working collaboratively towards solutions, rather than reopening old conflicts and spite, can create much better outcomes. He is not afraid to fight for what is right when appropriate but believes that should come after a good-faith effort at informal resolutions.

Attorney Lai is an active member of his community and serves as a volunteer with the Loyola Law School Board of Governors in feeding the homeless at the St. Francis Center each month. Additionally, he volunteers for the Southern California Chinese Lawyers Association’s Pro Bono Legal Clinic, providing free legal assistance for low-income immigrant families.
