Recently, our Principal Lawyer, Director and Founder, Lauren Cassimatis, received the Best Criminal Lawyers Award from Lawyers and Barristers Awards. Among over 26,000 lawyers in Victoria, only 8 were selected to receive this prestigious award, and we are thrilled that Lauren was chosen.
There are a number of reasons for Lauren’s success at winning this award, including her dedication to clients, the general public and other professional women.
At Gallant Law, we pride ourselves on our commitment to personalised service. Lauren, while being the Principal, still takes time to connect with her clients and understand their unique circumstances and needs.
Understanding that legal proceedings are stressful for you and your loved ones, Lauren aims to make the process easy to follow from your end, allowing you to focus on what matters most.
Lauren’s aim was to create a law firm which would allow everyone to access quality legal support. That is why she has partnered with organisations providing training for engaging with LGBTQIA+, Aboriginal/Torres Strait Island, African, and Pasifika clients to improve their experience and legal outcomes.
Lauren and Gallant Law are members of The Law Institute of Victoria, Geelong Law Association, and several Legal Aid panels. Our position in these groups allows us to advocate for fair, inclusive and understandable legal proceedings, aligning closely with our core values. Our team witnesses the impact of disenfranchisement in the legal setting every day, so we work hard to promote fair and equitable treatment.
In 2018, Lauren founded Connecting Lawyer Mums (CLM), a support group for mothers working in the legal profession. Designed to offer support and professional training, CLM provides courses, podcasts and resources to members to help you find the balance between your work life and motherhood. The group also runs frequent events to facilitate networking, relaxation and a space to engage with like-minded women.
“As a mum you can sometimes doubt yourself and your skills as a mother and as a lawyer, so it’s important to be able to share your experiences with others in the same situation and to support and empower each other.” – Lauren Cassimatis
In summary, Lauren’s dedication and warmth towards clients and fellow lawyers alike has made her a stand-out member of the legal profession in both urban and regional Victoria. We are incredibly proud of our founder Lauren, and foresee many more awards and recognitions in the future.
