Lauren has a simple answer when asked about the value of hiring a local firm over a big-city law firm. “I believe that local clients are best served by local lawyers, who understand the intricacies of the local legal landscape and are familiar with the courts, and who are also members of the community.”
“I find it important to remember the humanity of our clients, and that at heart, each client is really a person who needs our help,” she says. Lauren began her career as a criminal trial attorney, and she now puts her years of courtroom experience to use in representing all her clients.
And when the local attorney knows the people and institutions in an intimate way, it makes a difference. This is why Lauren values her representation of the Springfield Library Foundation. As a little girl she spent “countless hours with my Dad” in the Springfield Central Library.
Lauren is a member of the District and Superior Court Panels of the Hampden County Lawyers for Justice, the Hampden County Bar Association, and is an athlete, with interest in soccer, softball, tennis, running, and golf.
