Before Lauren became an attorney, she always had the intent and desire to obtain a law degree in order to be a voice for innocent people who were injured due to the negligence of others. Lauren understands the aftermath people have to deal with when you or a loved one has become the victim of someone else’s negligent acts. Due to the negligence of another person, a member of Lauren’s immediate family was the victim of a life changing injury that left Lauren and her family dealing with the emotional and physical aftermath. Through this experience, Lauren understands firsthand the need for justice that is felt by the victim and their family members. This grueling situation gave Lauren the passion and hunger to fight for her client’s rights so they may receive the just compensation they deserve. When Lauren fights for her clients, it’s as if she is fighting for her own family.
