Lauren focuses her practice on U.S. immigration law, with an emphasis on employment-based visa matters for multinational corporations, domestic entities and startups.

Lauren has worked in the immigration law field since 2011 and has considerable experience obtaining nonimmigrant and immigrant visas for professional workers, multinational managers and executives, health professionals, research scholars, artists/creatives, and investors and entrepreneurs. She also has significant experience assisting U.S. companies with immigration compliance and policy matters for the successful advancement of global hiring practices.

In addition to her work on behalf of corporate clients, Lauren has helped many individual clients with their immigration and naturalization cases, and also has experience obtaining relief for asylum applicants and victims of crimes.

Lauren is an active member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA). She has been involved with AILA Philadelphia’s Citizenship Day since 2015, and she provides pro bono legal services to immigrant survivors of violence through the Pennsylvania Immigration Resource Center (PIRC).

Prior to joining Barley Snyder, Lauren managed her own immigration law practice, through which she helped businesses and individuals navigate a challenging and constantly changing U.S. immigration climate. 

A recently returned Lancaster native, Lauren is an avid Philadelphia sports fan, enjoys solving crossword puzzles and listens to a lot of podcasts. She has a cat named Luca Brasi, a leopard gecko named Geoffrey, and she speaks conversational French.
