THE PEEBLES LAWYER
Lauren N. Peebles was admitted to the State Bar of California in 2012 after obtaining her Juris Doctor degree from the University of Oregon School of Law. Prior to law school, Lauren received her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California at Berkeley. During law school, Lauren clerked for the Honorable Magistrate Judge John V. Acosta in the United States District Court for the District of Oregon.
Lauren has a diverse legal resume including asbestos litigation, landlord-tenant law, personal injury, criminal defense, and civil litigation. However, it was not until she was appointed as successor trustee of her late grandmother’s estate that Lauren dedicated herself to Estate Planning and Probate. What Lauren enjoys most about Estate Planning is being able to help families prepare for (the often unexpected) future. Clients appreciate Lauren’s ability to translate highly complex “legalese” into easy-to-understand concepts. Guided by the biblical directive to “…write the vision, and make it plain…” Lauren translates her clients’ wishes into testamentary documents leaving them with the peace of mind that comes only from knowing their affairs are in order.
Lauren is a legal professional committed to life-long learning. She stays current with the latest legal developments and strategies in Estate Planning. In 2015, Lauren completed over 80 hours of continuing legal education courses in the field of Estate Planning and Administration.
Lauren is admitted to practice law before all courts of the State of California. She is a member of the California State Bar Trusts & Estates Section, the California Association of Black Lawyers, Black Women Lawyers of Northern California, and the East Bay Trusts & Estate Lawyers. She serves on the Executive Committee of the Alameda County Bar Association's (ACBA) Trust & Estate Section as well as ACBA's Barristers Section. Lauren is a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
