She 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. Before joining the Attorney General’s Office, Lauren was a trial attorney at the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, where she investigated and litigated Equal Pay Act, ADEA, and Title VII cases. She clerked for the Honorable Terrence G. Berg on the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan.

While there, she monitored conditions and court-mandated population reduction and assisted with litigation challenging race-based lockdowns. As an undergraduate, she investigated potential wrongful convictions with her university’s Innocence Project and was part of a team that procured an affidavit from a key prosecution witness recanting his trial testimony against an innocent man who was ultimately exonerated after 30 years in prison.
