Edward M. Lyman


Ed brings his former experience as a civil litigator and trial attorney to the practice of Matrimonial and Family Law. Prior to joining the firm, Ed earned successful, multi-million dollar outcomes in numerous civil lawsuits. He has discreetly represented plaintiffs in many difficult to win situations involving intellectual property, entertainment contracts, union dues, royalties, breach of contract, fraud, employment law, bankruptcy, defamation, sexual harassment, wrongful death, malpractice, municipal liability, and civil rights.

The Hollywood Reporter called one of Ed’s cases a “rare legal action” where even the veteran Federal judge presiding over the action explained to the litigants that “he never would have thought” he would rule in favor of Ed’s client. (Steven-Elliot Altman v. Capitol Films, LLC; and In re: Capitol Films Development LLC, 2:10-bk-19938-BR).

Ed’s diverse litigation background is invaluable to spouses and parents involved in high-profile divorce litigation where alimony, child support, child custody, paternity, and division of property issues are amplified by the fact that a spouse has substantial income, investments, real property, or intellectual property.
