Lauren Rice Burgon

About me


I have a solo practice based in West Seattle, where I have lived for more than 20 years.  My practice focuses primarily on business law and the needs of business owners.


My prior work experience gives me useful insight into the needs of business owners, having worked in a variety of small businesses including restaurants, a personal services business, veterinary clinics, and nonprofit organizations.


I enjoy developing long-term relationships with my clients so they know that they can depend on me to provide reliable, timely and affordable assistance.  


I offer a free 30 minute call or meeting so we can get to know each other and figure out how we can work together to protect the business you love.  We can meet via telephone or at your office, so that you don’t have to take a chunk out of your busy day.  I offer responsiveness, a quick turnaround, and reasonable rates.
