Lauren is one of our Boise-based legal interns (and future attorneys). Gravitating toward the opportunity to help people navigate the “gray” areas of law, Lauren is pursuing a career in healthcare and business law. At Smith + Malek, we value mentoring budding talent, and in her role, Lauren supports our attorneys and their clients in finding solutions to their complex legal issues.


A proud Yote, Lauren graduated summa cum laude from the College of Idaho and will graduate from the University of Idaho (UI) College of Law in the spring of 2023. A dedicated Vandal, she served on UI’s Pro Bono Program Board, as a court-appointed Guardian ad Litem, and was awarded the UI Alumni Award for Excellence in 2022. 


Outside of work, Lauren is diving into many law school textbooks as she prepares to graduate from UI and take the bar exam in the summer of 2023. When she’s not studying, she enjoys traveling, hiking with her husband and their pups, Albert and Larry, and spending time with her family in Parma, Idaho. 


What’s a life goal you have?
