Professional Experience

      Lauren has dedicated her career to helping children and families, first as a prosecutor pursuing justice for abused women and children, then in private practice advocating for adoptive families and children in foster care.

      Lauren spent the first eight years of her legal career as a prosecutor in both Dallas and Hunt Counties prosecuting all types of crime, with a focus on working with victims of abuse. During her time as a prosecutor, Lauren tried over 60 jury trials, wrote numerous appellate briefs, argued before the 6th Court of Appeals, and authored legislation sponsored by Senator Bob Deuell.

      Lauren’s work with abused and neglected children, and the example of families in her church who had adopted, motivated her to establish a private adoption practice in 2012. Since then, Lauren has assisted over 160 families with the adoption process and expanded her services to families to include comprehensive will packages, estate planning, and probate administration.

      Lauren understands that going through any legal process can be intimidating and frustrating. Her goal is to walk her clients through each step of the legal process, encouraging them that God has a plan for their family and for his glory.
