As the owner of Emerald City Law Group, Lauren Wegener takes tremendous pride in working on behalf of her clients and believes wholeheartedly that all people deserve strong, compelling advocacy. She empathizes with all the negative emotions her clients feel when facing criminal charges and relentlessly advocates for them to ensure their rights are protected.
She earned her B.A. at the University of Washington, graduating with a double major in Philosophy and Law, Societies, and Justice. She then earned her J.D. from Seattle University School of Law. During her time in law school, she worked at the state Attorney General’s Office, focusing on assaultive crimes. This proved to be an invaluable experience and helped her develop a deeper understanding of prosecutorial procedure and strategy.
Shortly thereafter, Lauren began working as a public defender in the greater Seattle area. With significant training and experience on both sides of the judicial aisle, Lauren emerged as a seasoned attorney for each client’s rights.
“I became a lawyer because my grandparents were enslaved in the WWII internment camps, locked away without a voice. It is my mission to make sure people are heard and their rights are protected. To me, Advocacy and Results matter. Recently in court I argued that a client’s arrest was without sufficient cause. Although it was her second DUI in seven years, it was clear to me that her rights were violated. After my argument the judge dismissed the case. In my head I know everyone deserves a voice”.
