The Illinois Bar Foundation (IBF) was founded more than 50 years ago to provide assistance to members of the Illinois Bar who, because of age or infirmity, could no longer provide for their own care or support. Since then, the Foundation has expanded its scope to ensure meaningful access to the justice system, especially for those with limited means, and to assist lawyers who can no longer support themselves due to incapacity.

A partner at AHR since 2000, Lisa focuses her practice primarily in family law. Prior to joining AHR, she worked as an attorney in Aurora and Geneva, IL for 10 years. In 2008, she became a Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and currently serves on its board. She is active in the Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA) as a member of various committees and sections and has served on the Board of Governors.


A frequent speaker for the ISBA and the Kane County Bar Association (KCBA) seminars, Lisa presents on various topics, including family law, bankruptcy, practice management, GAL training and ethics/civility. She is a past President of the KCBA and the Kane County Bar Foundation. She received the Family Law Achievement Award from the KCBA in 2003 for her work in establishing a Children's Waiting Room at the Kane County Judicial Center. She also received the pro bono award from the Kane County Bar Foundation in 2006.

Lisa earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and her Juris Doctorate degree from Northern Illinois University College of Law, where she was honored with the Alumnus of the Year Award in 2005. She has been selected by her peers in the legal community as a Leading Lawyer every year since 2010, and as a Super Lawyer every year since 2012 for her outstanding work in family law.

Lisa is active in the local community as well, volunteering her time for Administer Justice and Prairie State Legal Services, to name a few. She also has numerous published works in the field of law.

"I consider it an honor to be President of the Illinois Bar Foundation. During these unprecedented times, the IBF is firmly committed to assisting our members who may be experiencing unique challenges. I look forward to collaborating with my colleagues in the months ahead to continue serving the legal community and enhancing access to justice for the public," Nyuli commented.
