Meet Lauren Barnes, Our Newest Associate Attorney at Smith Freed Eberhard

Please join us in welcoming Lauren Barnes, our newest associate attorney at Smith Freed Eberhard.

Lauren is based in our Portland office and is working on both Jeff Eberhard’s and Ryan McLellan’s teams. Her practice focuses on general civil litigation, motor vehicle accidents, personal injury, negligence, and slip and falls.

Lauren has four years of experience as an associate attorney, and before joining Smith Freed Eberhard, she specialized in high-conflict family law and child representation as well as personal injury.

Lauren is from Colorado and grew up with a love for the outdoors, however, she was not a fan of the regular snowfall and freezing temperatures from October through April. Because of that she began looking at the Pacific Northwest when applying to law schools. Once she visited Oregon, she instantly fell in love with the state and never wanted to leave. Away from work, you can find Lauren baking sweet treats and other baked goods (quarantine reinvigorated this hobby) and exploring the hiking trails of the PNW with her boyfriend and their Siberian Husky, Kimchi.
