also known as ANGELOS LAW GROUP
As founder and Partner of Angelos Law Group, Lauren Angelos focuses her practice on the representation of juveniles and adults accused of misdemeanors and felonies in the criminal justice system, as well as DUI and traffic matters. Her passion for justice and holding police officers and prosecutors accountable makes her an unparalleled advocate.
A native of Santa Barbara, California, Ms. Angelos began her work in the legal field answering phones and running errands for a criminal defense and family law office. While the position was initially administrative, Ms. Angelos developed a strong interest in the law; a passion that would lead her to law school as she worked her way up to Legal Secretary.
Ms. Angelos received her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Pepperdine University of Malibu, California, graduating with Honors. Thereafter, she moved to San Diego, California to attend Thomas Jefferson School of Law, where she received her Juris Doctorate.
During her time in law school, Ms. Angelos worked with both the San Diego Office of the Primary Public Defender and the Office of the Alternate Public Defender, handling adult and juvenile matters for clients in the Central Misdemeanor Unit, Adult Felony Division, and Juvenile Delinquency Division, graduating with Pro Bono Honors for providing well over 400 hours of free legal work to clients. This tenure made it clear that there was only one career path for Ms. Angelos; criminal defense.
Upon graduation, Ms. Angelos was offered a position as Associate Attorney at the Law Offices of G. Cole Casey, later Casey & Wood. The firm was led by veteran DUI defense attorney Cole Casey, who brought over 20 years of experience, knowledge, and understanding to the practice. Clients of the firm included numerous professional athletes, politicians, CEO’s of Fortune 10 companies, doctors, nurses, airline pilots, lawyers, judges, police officers, firefighters and members of the armed services.
During her time with the firm, Ms. Angelos developed unsurpassed knowledge of both alcohol and drug DUIs, as well as a keen understanding of the serious collateral consequences that can follow from even the most simple misdemeanor conviction, such as the potential loss of a job, career, security clearance, teaching credential, professional license, in addition to significant jail time.
Ms. Angelos also served as the firm’s Veteran Liaison, working with the Public Defenders Office to spread awareness and training to the private bar regarding such collaborative and specialty courts as Veterans Diversion and Veterans Court.
In 2015, Ms. Angelos opened Angelos Law Group and continues her work in criminal defense. She is committed to the intelligent and effective representation of the firm’s clients.
The firm also handles post-conviction matters, such as Probation Violations, Motions for Early Termination of Probation, Expungements, and Pardons. She is licensed to practice law in all state courts in the state of California and the United States District Court, Southern District.
