Should peaceful resolution not be an option, Lauren confidently takes her clients to the resolution of their cases through trial.
I chose to use the symbol of the Phoenix as my firm logo. In mythology, the Phoenix is known for its ability to rise from its own ashes to begin anew. This is a process I have witnessed over and over again with my clients going through anything from divorce to domestic violence issues. Often, an individual comes to me believing themselves to be broken and not sure where life might take them next. The journey through any family law case is never an easy one, but I am always inspired by the countless clients I have represented who choose to rise from their own ashes to create something new and better, whether it be for themselves or their children. In that spirit, the symbol of the Phoenix is something I encourage all of my clients to embrace as they take steps toward their own new beginnings.
