Congratulations to BGL attorney Lauren Kelleher, who has been selected The Best Lawyers in America’s “Ones to Watch” list for 2024 for her excellent work in civil rights law.
“I am honored to receive this recognition along with well-respected attorneys from across the nation,” Lauren said. “I look forward to continuing to fight for my clients’ civil rights and ensuring that they receive equal treatment under the law.”
Lauren, who joined BGL in February 2022, is part of the team seeking wrongful conviction compensation for Clarence Jones under the Walter Lomax Act. Mr. Jones is a Baltimore County father who spent 18 years in prison for murder based on a “shaken baby syndrome” conviction that was set aside when he received his Writ of Actual Innocence in 2021. Before joining the firm, she served as an Assistant Attorney General for the Maryland Office of the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division where she investigated and litigated against pharmaceutical companies for their role in the opioid epidemic, including work on the Purdue bankruptcy. Lauren also has experience representing individuals and groups of plaintiffs in workplace discrimination and harassment cases as well as consumers in products and financial services litigation.
