A New Jersey native, Lauren graduated from Monmouth University in 2009 with a B.S. in Social Work. Immediately thereafter, Lauren moved to South Carolina to attend the University of South Carolina School of Law from where she graduated in 2012. During law school Lauren became a volunteer Guardian ad Litem in abuse and neglect cases and served as a volunteer GAL until 2019.  

In September of 2012, shortly after graduating from law school, Lauren began working for the South Carolina Department of Revenue where she spent six years litigating alcohol licensing and tax matters on behalf of the Department. Lauren also worked closely with the ABL section in advising them on the interpretation of statutes and spent a lot of time assisting with sales and use tax matters.  Lauren left the SCDOR in October 2018 to go into private practice with a small Mount Pleasant Law firm. In October 2019, Lauren opened The Acquaviva Law Firm, LLC so she could focus her efforts on alcohol licensing matters, state and local tax controversy, and family law/juvenile advocacy matters (including DSS cases). Lauren became a certified Guardian ad Litem in February 2019 allowing her to work on private family court matters.
