After surviving a horrific car accident, Lauren decided it was time to finally pursue her dreams of going to law school and becoming a lawyer. Hey if you can learn how to walk again when you’re 25 you can conquer law school, can’t you? Lauren is sensitive to the needs of every-day people. She’s especially fond of helping small businesses and regular people overcome real issues.
Lauren currently resides in Oak Cliff. She is active in local issues including infrastructure, education and civil and disability rights.
Lauren obtained her Bachelors of Applied Science from Arizona State University. She went onto obtain her MBA in Management at Western International University and then her JD at St. Mary’s University School of Law. During her undergrad Lauren sold real estate in the Scottsdale Arizona area to mainly first time buyers. After moving back to Texas and while working toward her MBA, Lauren worked as a claims adjuster at Progressive Insurance. During law school Lauren was an adjunct professor teaching business law, ethics and human resources. Most recently, Lauren has worked at AT&T as part of the Leadership Development Program in Supply Chain.
Born in Galveston, Texas, and raised between Fort Worth and Houston, Jamesha is the oldest of four children: her brother, Justin, 28, is battling Multiple Sclerosis, and she has twin siblings, Shayla and Skylar, 26. Jamesha wanted to be a doctor when she grew up, “but after taking some medical classes in high school I quickly had a change of heart!” she says with a laugh. She attended Klein High School, 30 miles from downtown Houston, and Mansfield Timberview, then went on to trade school at Arlington Career Institute, to get her Paralegal Certification. She is currently perusing her Associates at Dallas County Community College. Jamesha says about her career, “When I found out what a Paralegal was, I was instantly drawn to it. My younger brother had gotten into some legal trouble and I wanted nothing more than to help him.” She explains, “I’ve always thought that sometimes good people make dumb decisions, but that shouldn’t mean the end of their life. I started out only wanting to do Criminal law, but as the years have progressed I have found Estate Planning, Business Formation, Litigation, Probate and Family law to be enjoyable. Any way that I can give light to a dark situation brings me joy.” Her sincere hope to help others also lead her to the Law office of Lauren Cadilac, an Oak Cliff attorney who practices Business, Probate, Civil Litigation, Estate Planning, Real Estate, Property Tax Protests, and much more. Jamesha recently was hired into the all-female law firm, and looks forward to working with the caring staff. Jamesha began her new career in law working at the firm in June of 2017
