Seat at the Table

Laura Wasser, Hollywood's divorce lawyer

When celebrity couples call it quits, they call Laura Wasser. Dubbed the "disso queen" by gossip site TMZ, Wasser goes to great lengths to keep an A-list split out of the headlines.

When celebrity couples call it quits, they call Laura Wasser. 

Her list of clients – Angelina Jolie, Britney Spears, a Kardashian or three, just to name a few – has earned her the nickname "disso queen" from the popular gossip site TMZ.

"Disso", as in dissolution of marriage. 


Wasser chatted with Martine and Isabelle about the lengths to which she has to go to keep an A-list split out of the headlines, why she considers divorce "the great equalizer" and why, despite her proximity to failed marriages, she still enjoys a good wedding.
