Helen E. Tokar

Helen E. Tokar is a senior associate attorney in the Los Angeles office of Wisner Baum, where she focuses her practice on the firm’s Zantac cancer litigation and toxic baby food lawsuits.

She is the essential “right arm” for our firm’s managing partner, R. Brent Wisner, to support his work on the firm’s Zantac cancer litigation by focusing on the client and case management of more than 11,000 Zantac cases and over 3,500 baby food cases.  Helen is also heavily involved in the litigation from handling depositions and discovery to trial preparation.

Authority Magazine featured Helen in their “Power Women” interview series, in which they talk to accomplished women leaders about their stories and experiences navigating work, love, and life as a powerful woman. 

Power Women: Helen Tokar of Wisner Baum On How To Successfully Navigate Work, Love and Life As A Powerful Woman

“Helen Tokar is a successful attorney who has faced head-on the challenges of being a successful professional woman in a male-dominated industry, being a working mom, and handling the impossible task of balancing work and personal life. Helen has faced everything with confidence, even if it was challenging for her. The complex challenge of being a working mom is not lost on Helen, who has found a way to balance her incredibly busy career with being a mom and even uses her maternal empathy to relate to her clients when handling mass tort cases such as those related to baby food.”
