Prior to law school, Lauren, who was always a self-starter, worked for several start-up companies where she was able to develop an aptitude for active listening and thinking on her feet. Eventually, Lauren was drawn to the legal profession by a desire to help others persevere through difficult times and the opportunity to make a meaningful impact in their lives. “As a plaintiff’s personal injury lawyer, I take great pride in standing up for individuals who have experienced a loss and making sure my clients always have someone on their side that is willing to fight for their rights.”
During law school, Lauren sharpened her legal skills by working as a law clerk on the plaintiff’s side for several Chicago area litigation law firms, as well as by representing clients in a variety of civil litigation matters through DePaul’s Civil Litigation Clinic.
