Lauren Varner is a devoted Plaintiff’s attorney, who has dedicated her life to the pursuit of accountability and ensuring that her clients are empowered to courageously forge ahead in the claims and litigation processes to rightfully reclaim what has been taken from them. She is dedicated to shedding light on the admirable perseverance of civil plaintiffs and their attorneys in the face of underhanded insurance defense tactics.

Lauren is a proud Colorado native, who became involved in the field of personal injury long before she became an attorney. In high school and college, Lauren worked for her father, a prominent orthopedic surgeon, who treated patients injured in accidents of all kinds. Witnessing the devastation that these events can bring upon a person’s life solidified Lauren’s calling to help injured victims from an early age. Since her second year of law school, Lauren has worked exclusively in the field of plaintiffs personal injury. From the time she became licensed to practice law, Lauren has handled all aspects of personal injury cases, from the initial client consultations through trial. Within approximately six months of becoming licensed, Lauren conducted her first solo trial. Within two years, Lauren argued before the Colorado Court of Appeals. Her practice has spanned multiple states and myriad jurisdictions within Colorado, as well as federal court.

Lauren has extensive litigation experience as a Denver personal injury lawyer, and has successfully resolved cases involving wrongful death, motor vehicle collisions, trucking collisions, motorcycle collisions, slip/trip and falls, auto/pedestrian cases, auto/bicycle collisions, drunk driving collisions, assault/battery, negligent security, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, construction site injuries, and dog bites. Lauren has achieved many significant six- and seven-figure-settlements on behalf of her clients.

Lauren graduated Summa Cum Laude (with highest honors) from the University of Denver, where she studied gender issues and advocated on behalf of marginalized identities. She then received her Juris Doctor degree from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, where she was honored with the prestigious Student Leadership Award during her final year, among other awards and designations.

Today, Lauren remains active within the local legal community. She is currently serving a second term on the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association Board of Directors and has co-chaired the Women Trial Lawyers’ Network, CTLA’s annual Blockbuster Seminar, and the CTLA Membership Committee. Lauren’s work has been acknowledged by SuperLawyers, which has named her a “Rising Star” the past five years in a row – an honor bestowed upon only 2.5% of Colorado lawyers. Additionally, 5280 Magazine has selected Lauren to be featured on its prestigious short list of Denver’s top attorneys based on a rigorous peer-review process and editor research the past three years in a row. Lauren was also named one of Law Week Colorado’s Top Women in 2019.

Lauren spends her time outside of work mentoring DU law students, meditating, rollerblading (it’s making an epic comeback!), and spending time with her husband and their four mini-dachshunds, Turkey, PeeWee, Craig, and Wally.
