Lauren M. Fair, Managing Partner

Certified Family Law Specialist 

Since the very beginning of her legal education and career, Attorney Lauren Fair has focused her advocacy on protecting the interests of families and children. Lauren has been skillfully and effectively representing clients in family law matters exclusively in San Diego County for more than a decade.

Although a tough, sharp advocate for her clients, Lauren is also compassionate and approachable when interacting with her clients. Lauren takes the time to ensure her clients  thoroughly understand the legal process and their choices along the way, as the decisions they make in a family law case can have enduring effects.

Personal Attention in Complex Matters

Lauren handles her cases personally from beginning to end to ensure her clients receive the personal attention they need during the difficult times that compels people to seek her representation. Lauren understands that family discord often results in deep, prolonged conflict between former partners that inhibits their ability to resolve their family law matter independently; as such, Lauren enjoys assuming the role of advocate and legal counselor for her clients inside and outside the courtroom so the client can begin to concentrate on decreasing personal conflict and rebuilding his or her life. 

Lauren excels in thoroughly evaluating family law matters comprised of many moving pieces, and recommending a course of action calculated to achieve the client's objectives, tailored to the facts of the particular case, and designed to be as cost-effective as possible. Lauren is experienced in handling family law matters involving high-net-worth community estates, military issues, complex child support and spousal support issues, high-conflict custody matters, and move-away/relocation cases, among others.  Dedicated to delivering superior and compassionate service, Lauren zealously and tirelessly advocates on behalf of her clients.

In her free time, Lauren enjoys spending time with her husband, two children, and three step-children; walking at the beach; traveling; and spending time with friends and family.
