Lauren has over 15 years of experience defending a wide range of clients including transportation companies, automobile insureds, primary and excess carriers, premises owners, product manufacturers, as well as employers and operators of transmission and distribution pipelines. Her defense practice has brought her to state and federal courts all across Louisiana and even into her home state of Florida. Although Lauren’s practice is primarily situated in Louisiana, she is also licensed in Florida and Texas.

In addition to her diverse clientele, Lauren has defended clients in personal injury and wrongful death suits, often managing catastrophic claims pre-suit through discovery, mediation, trial and appeal. The complexity and nature of such claims has enabled Lauren to work with many liability and medical experts and to gain recognition in the legal community. She has tried many cases to verdict, including three jury trials in 2023 alone, all of which resulted in defense verdicts.

Outside the office, Lauren is a member of the Federation of Defense and Corporate Counsel, an international organization dedicated to the principles of knowledge, justice and fellowship.
