More about Lauren

We asked Lauren:

What can clients expect from you?

A friendly approach with clear, honest and realistic advice.

What do you love about your job?

Helping clients to navigate what can be a very scary time in their lives. Ensuring that clients feel that their voices are heard so they can fully participate in the court process. My role also requires me to have an understanding of medical and mental health issues and how this can impact family life.

What are your interests outside work?

I love a good book and spend a lot of time reading my kindle. I also love to travel and experience different cuisines and cultures. I always like to have a holiday planned to look forward to!
