H. Lauren Williams
Attorney Lauren Williams was born in Stuttgart, Arkansas, then spent time living in Colorado before moving to Penfield, New York where she attended high school. After graduation she attended Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas and received her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with honors in Liberal Arts before heading to Michigan State University College of Law. She received her Juris Doctor in 2014.
During her time in Michigan, she also graduated with a certificate from the Geoffrey Fieger Trial Practice Institute and interned with the Monroe County Public Defenders Office and the United States Army’s JAG Corps at Fort Knox, Kentucky. She also worked in the Immigration Law Clinic during her tenure at Michigan State
When asking Lauren why she decided to become an attorney, she says “I was raised by Southern former US Army Veteran’s, who firmly believed and instilled in my brother and I the idea of the American Dream. For me, that meant doing better than my parents did. My father has worked in law enforcement for my entire life. It seemed to me that the next step from police officer/detective was to become an attorney. So I did. Being an attorney is about helping people when they are at their worst. Most people go about their lives believing that bad things will never happen to them. By the time they reach out to an attorney, things are bad. Helping them and making sure they get the justice they deserve is what I am most passionate about. ”
Lauren enjoys her spare time in many ways. She says “Family is the most important thing to me, so I try and spend as much time with my family as I can. Otherwise, you can find me hanging out with my golden retriever, Teddy Rex and my friends playing games or watching movies.”
