  • Michael T Flanagan

    Lauren has quickly earned a reputation for excellence in defending and prosecuting high exposure and complex cases in Federal Court. She handles and wins cases that seem indefensible. I fully endorse Lauren and would recommend her to any attorney seeking co-counsel for Federal matters.
