Lauren Pryde joined the pharmaceutical litigation group at the Dallas office of Baron & Budd in 2019 where she actively works to represent counties across the country that have been devastated by the opioid crisis. Ms. Pryde is no stranger to advocating for the voiceless. She has volunteered throughout her life with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation to help raise awareness and find a cure for this disease.
Ms. Pryde received her Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Boston College in 2013 and graduated cum laude from SMU Dedman School of Law in the top 15% of her class. While attending SMU Dedman School of Law, Ms. Pryde interned at the Dallas County Public Defender’s Office, Family Division. She assisted public defenders in providing legal assistance in child custody and child support cases to parents who could not afford legal counsel to defend their Fourteenth Amendment substantive due process rights. This experience provided Ms. Pryde with substantial courtroom experience and a keen appreciation for advocating on behalf of clients of all different backgrounds.
Subsequent to her graduation, Ms. Pryde moved back to her hometown of Seattle, Washington, and worked as real estate counsel on residential real estate transactional matters at Pryde Corporation, a real estate development company. She received her Washington State Real Estate Broker’s License in 2018.
Ms. Pryde is licensed to practice law in Washington State and in the District of Columbia. She enjoys running, listening to biographical audiobooks, and contributing her efforts to help save the endangered Southern Resident Orca Whales of the Northwest San Juan Islands.
