Lauren A. Audette
Associate Attorney | Tucson
Focusing on the assistance of individuals in victim advocacy, criminal defense, and family law, Ms. Audette’s experience spans both private and public sectors. A Massachusetts native, Ms. Audette came to Tucson to attend the University of Arizona where she earned both her Undergraduate and Master’s degrees. While pursuing her Master’s Degree, Ms. Audette volunteered with specific individuals focused on advocating for the rights of women and children. She served as an intern and research assistant at the Southern Arizona Children’s Advocacy Center where she became a certified Basic Forensic Interviewer for the victims in criminal child-abuse investigations.
Ms. Audette then went on to receive her Juris Doctor (J.D.) from the Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego, California where she also developed the nonprofit organization Counter Balance: Foundation for Victims of Crime. The organization is dedicated to providing free legal services to victims of violent crime in Southern California. She served as a member of the Board of Directors and as Executive Secretary of the organization for two terms while in California and continues its mission locally in Southern Arizona. Currently an Associate working with Zachary H. Spanier, her vast experience greatly benefits our firm and its clients. Ms. Audette was admitted to the State Bar of California in 2015 and the State Bar of Arizona in 2016, which will ultimately allow the firm to expand its reach to assist clientele in both California and Arizona.
In addition to her legal career, Ms. Audette maintains a strong allegiance to the Boston Red Sox and plays soccer for the Tucson City League.
