Prior to joining Foley, Baron, Metzger, & Juip, Lauren worked for a medical malpractice insurance defense firm in metro-Detroit as a paralegal. It was there that she honed her legal skills and decided to attend law school to further pursue her interest in medical malpractice and healthcare litigation.
While in law school, Lauren interned with two Lansing-area law firms and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. As a law clerk she co-drafted an appellate brief submitted to the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and, in consolidation with other cases, the Supreme Court of the United States. Portions of her briefing were heard in oral argument during the Supreme Court’s October Term 2021. Her health law-concentrated coursework notably included a directed study and proposal essay regarding major factors of rising healthcare litigation costs and exploring potential solutions. She also served on the Moot Court Board of Advocates and competed in the National Health Law Moot Court Competition, which is sponsored by the American Health Law Association and the American College of Legal Medicine.
Lauren joined Foley, Baron, Metzger, & Juip as a paralegal, specializing in medical malpractice defense, while she eagerly awaited her Michigan Bar Exam results. She is a member of the Health Care Law, Environmental, and Young Lawyers Sections of the State Bar of Michigan.
When she’s not boating on the Great Lakes or Gulf of Mexico, Lauren likely can be found snow skiing, snowmobiling, ice skating, hiking, paddle boarding, or engaged in some other outdoor activity. Her love of skiing is especially great, as she started alpine ski racing at the age of 10, competing in the United States Ski & Snowboard Association (Central Division, Region III), and continued on through college with the University of Michigan Alpine Ski Team.
Now a new homeowner, Lauren hopes to balance home-renovation projects with coaching the next generation of Junior Olympic ski racers, playing with her nieces and nephew(s), and cheering on her beloved Michigan Wolverines! She considers herself the ultimate Michigan fan and is always tuned in to watch Michigan football, basketball, hockey, and more, wherever she goes. GO BLUE!
