Lisa E. Bolinger focuses her practice on Estate Planning and Probate as well as Civil and Business Litigation. Her legal experience includes matters related to state and federal regulations, contract disputes, civil rights, personal injury, employment discrimination, unpaid wages, disability discrimination, insurance claims, and other civil litigation issues. 

Prior to joining Widerman Malek, she was general counsel for a multi-state conglomeration of companies. She handled all aspects of legal protection, business planning, and strategy for the companies, which were located across four states.   

Before becoming an attorney, her first career was in IT-related jobs, working for one of the largest multi-national energy companies in the US. While working in these jobs, she obtained her MBA. Lisa utilizes her business background to bring a strategic and personalized approach to handling her cases.   

Lisa has always been an advocate for animals; she was the Vice President of her law school’s Student Animal Legal Defense Fund group, she is a member of the Animal Law Section of the Florida Bar, and she has always volunteered and raised money for local shelters and animal-related non-profits. She currently volunteers for Animal Safehouse, a non-profit that transports and fosters all types of animals belonging to domestic violence victims that are in the process of transitioning from temporary to more permanent housing.   

When Lisa is not busy drafting a motion or preparing for a hearing, she can be found spending time with her family and friends, which includes her husband and her four rescue dogs. They love cooking, camping, hiking, and capturing pictures of their dogs, nature, and of course watching all the rocket launches.
