How Lauren Helps Clients
Lauren is a problem solver. Understanding that some problems aren’t best served through litigation, Lauren aims to craft creative solutions to resolve issues for clients. However, when the need arises, she litigates cases in a wide range of subject matters and can often be found in and out of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania trial and appellate courts. Lauren regularly represents commercial and business clients in contract and business tort-related issues and provides business-related advice. She has extensive experience representing commercial lenders in creditors' right and collection matters. Additionally, of particular interest to Lauren are problems involving Internet defamation. She also represents individuals, business owners, celebrities and the media in connection with negative content on the Internet.
Lauren is consistently named to the Super Lawyers New York Metro Rising Stars list since 2016 and was named to Super Lawyers 2018 Pennsylvania Rising Stars list.
What Clients Can Expect
Lauren provides a thoughtful approach with respect to problems. Before running to court, Lauren will provide clients with an analysis of options and cost effective ways to achieve the desired result. Lauren also becomes an expert on the particular problem at hand by treating every case as a learning experience, while also applying years of experience and expertise.
I always try to resolve client issues in the most efficient and least restrictive and adversarial means possible. If and when that proves impossible, however, I stand ready to defend my clients with the tenacity and focus they deserve.
Outside the Office

If she had not pursued a career in law, she would have hoped to have landed a gig as a travel journalist or interior designer. She has been a contributor to Vermont Bride Magazine.
