Lauren H. McCartney is an Associate in the Health Care industry group, focusing primarily on asbestos and non-medical liability litigation. She practices out of the Firm’s office in Morgantown, West Virginia.
Lauren is no ordinary associate – driven and experienced, she routinely handles all aspects of litigation. From discovery to depositions to trial preparation, Lauren produces work-product and results well beyond her years. She is an essential part of the team, coordinating countless moving pieces of numerous large-scale litigations. Lauren also knows that part of her job as an associate is to get better every day, so she is constantly learning from her colleagues to sharpen her legal skills.
Her workplace performance is not surprising given her stellar track record. To say Lauren was an accomplished student is an understatement, serving as Treasurer of the Women’s Leadership Council and Academic Chair for the West Virginia University Chapter of the Black Law Students Association, as well as being named a W.E.B. DuBois Fellow. Lauren also has studied at the University of Debrecen in Debrecen, Hungary, the University of Antonio de Nebrija in Madrid, Spain, Oxford University in Oxford, England, and the Warsaw School of Social Sciences and Humanities in Warsaw, Poland. The experience that comes from traveling to new places and studying within different countries has given Lauren a larger knowledge base of legalities and sharpened her ability to assess, familiarize, and handle any situation that comes her way.
Lauren does all this while parenting a toddler – perhaps the most impressive of all her accomplishments. In her free time, you will find Lauren cooking healthy, homemade food for her family or cheering on the Mountaineers at nearby WVU.
