And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
- Micah 6:8, NIV
Lauren Hudgeons, Attorney at Law
Lauren was born and raised in Hunt County, Texas. After graduating from Greenville High School, Lauren obtained a bachelor’s degree from Baylor University in just two and a half years. After graduation, Lauren married her husband Brian and went on to earn a juris doctorate from Baylor Law School. Lauren and Brian are the proud parents of Avery, Aiden, Anthony, and Addison. Lauren has been a foster and adoptive parent, holds positions on several local boards, and is passionate about helping children and families in need.
Baylor Law School, Juris Doctorate Degree, 2006, cum laude
Baylor University, Bachelor of Arts Degree, 2002, magna cum laude
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 represented families in over 300 adoptions and served as attorney ad litem for over 200 children in foster care. She has also expanded her services to families to include comprehensive will packages, probate administration, and real estate.
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.
