Lauren Smith began working as an administrative assistant for Phelan Webber Pettis P.S. during the fall of 2012. As an administrative assistant, Lauren aids the legal assistants by preparing, editing, and proofreading legal documents; creating letters and memos to clients; and, helping with various other office tasks.
In September 2014, Lauren was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and had to take a year and a half off for chemotherapy treatment. Lauren’s co-workers were so proud of her tenacity and positive spirit during her arduous recovery. She is truly our heroine! Now in remission, Lauren was able to come back to work in November 2015, and has been enjoying being back at work with her co-workers.
Lauren has also been pursuing her bachelor’s degree in public policy with a concentration in political science. Working in a law office has sparked her interest in the legal field, and Lauren hopes to possibly continue on to law school after completing her degree.
In her free time, Lauren enjoys spending time with her family, playing with the neighborhood animals, and snuggling up with a good book or movie.
