Lauren Wawrzyniak is an accomplished litigator with a love of learning and a drive to win.

After achieving academic prowess at Michigan State University and University of Detroit Mercy School of Law – she earned cum laude honors at both schools and served as Associate Editor of the Law Review – Lauren began her legal career defending general negligence matters.  She quickly gained a reputation for securing successful results for her clients in both state and federal court.  Lauren has handled cases from pre-suit liability analysis through trial for her clients.  Lauren has also taught as an adjunct professor of business law, negotiations, and security law.

Because no two cases are ever the same, Lauren immerses herself in the law and facts of each new matter, thoroughly weighing the strengths and weaknesses before pursuing the best possible outcome for her clients.  Her reputation for tenacity and superior counsel earned her repeat honors as a Super Lawyers Rising Star, a DBusiness Magazine Top Lawyer, and one of the Top Women Attorneys in Michigan by Hour Detroit Magazine.

Lauren is a member of the firm’s condemnation group where she pursues actions to further her commercial clients’ business interests.  Despite the vast number of cases she oversees, each matter is distinct and poses new and exciting challenges for her.  Over the course of her legal career, she has also had experience handling various appellate matters, yet another outlet for her advocacy talents.
