About me

In 1998, Ms. Lauby received her Bachelor of Science degree in Social Policy from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.  As a student, Ms. Lauby interned at the Chicago Department of Human Services.  There, she participated in various aspects of the policy making process including research and analysis regarding  the local impact of the federal transition from Aid to Families with Dependent Children to the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program.   In addition to her academic pursuits, she also pitched for the Wildcats’ Varsity Softball team.

After college, Ms. Lauby joined the Chicago office of the prestigious, Kirkland & Ellis LLP, as a case assistant on the tobacco litigation team.   There, she learned the ins and outs of complex litigation and traveled to Seattle, Washington and Kansas City, Missouri to provide trial support. 

In 2000, Ms. Lauby returned to her native Southern California and transferred to the Kirkland & Ellis office in Los Angeles where she continued to work until 2003.  While still at Kirkland, Ms. Lauby decided to take the next step in her legal career and simultaneously attended law school.  

After moving to the Inland Empire, Ms. Lauby became a law clerk for Fernandez & Lauby, marking the beginning of her in-depth exposure to the practice of construction and insurance litigation.

Ms. Lauby received her Juris Doctor degree in 2005 from Southwestern University School of Law in Los Angeles, California.  As a first year student she was recognized as a finalist in the Moot Court writing competition. 

After going through her own divorce, Ms. Lauby became interested in family law.  She has cultivated a philosophy that encourages parties to reduce costs, stress and harm to children by taking control of the outcome of their case though mutual negotiation rather than litigation.  While litigation is sometimes unavoidable, Ms. Lauby believes that it should be a matter of last resort.
