“Art is creating nuances where none were initially present. The art of law is knowing where to blur the lines, add shading and put in the detail—because not everything in law is black and white.” - Lauren Grimaldi

To Lauren Grimaldi, law is a helping profession.
She’s proud to be part of a team that provides exceptional legal representation without big city attitude, giving clients who have been seriously injured hope for a brighter future.

" Q: Artistic style that best represents your approach to law."− A: “Magic Eye. Those pictures that you stare at until the picture becomes visible, and then you explain to someone else what you’re seeing and how to find it. That’s just like law. You’re convincing a judge that your perspective is valid and worthy, when she or he might’ve seen it totally differently.”
" Q: A quote that stuck with you. "− A: “I always think about the nursery rhyme about the want of a horseshoe nail causing a kingdom to be lost. It’s the smallest details that can derail you. You don’t know what the horseshoe nail will be, so you try to make sure there isn’t one.”
" Q: Proudest moment."− A: “I was defending a divisional court appeal and my clients came to watch. What was important to them was that I represented them in a way that they could be proud of—it didn’t end up a mud-slinging contest. When it was all over they said, 'Can we hug you?'”
