Lisa Holder was admitted to the California State Bar in 2001 after obtaining her J.D. from California Pacific School Law with highest honors that same year.  She was named class valedictorian and received a Corpus Juris Secundum Award and a West Group Outstanding Scholastic Achievement award.  She is AV rated by Martindale-Hubbell, the highest designation, and is certified as a specialist in bankruptcy law by the California State Bar's Board of Legal Specialization.  Before attaining her law degree, Lisa spent 20 years in the service industry.  Because of her customer service background, she has a keen ability to anticipate a client's needs and desired outcomes, and a strong record of achieving those goals.  Lisa pays close attention to her client's concerns and focuses her efforts on what is most important to her family law clients.  In her bankruptcy practice, Lisa has represented trustees in many million-dollar liquidation cases, has led the restructuring efforts of multiple mid-sized businesses and sole proprietorships, and has assisted creditors in navigating the unfamiliar bankruptcy world.  Lisa is also a sought-after speaker on women in leadership roles.
