Ms. Lauren Albanese Bryant

The Law Office of Lauren A. Bryant

Lauren Bryant graduated Magna cum laude from the University of Georgia in 2004 with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice. She attended Florida State University College of Law for the 2005-2006 school year, where she was a member of the Moot Court Team, the Journal of Transnational Law and Policy, and the Journal of Land Use and Environmental Law. Lauren transferred to Georgia State University College of Law in 2006 and received her Juris Doctor in 2008. After nearly 15 years with a small general practice law firm (which ultimately transitioned into an almost exclusively probate-focused firm), Lauren opened her own practice in late 2021 and continues to focus her work and advocacy on probate and estate planning matters.

               Prior to law school, Lauren was a social worker and advocated for adults with developmental disabilities, while further solidifying her passion for advocacy and compassionate representation. In law school, Lauren worked as an intern for the Metro-Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless, and the Georgia Advocacy Office, a non-profit specializing in assisting and advocating for individuals who are labeled as disabled or mentally ill. Her passion for advocacy led her to become a Guardian ad litem for numerous probate courts throughout the state (Gwinnett, Cobb, Fulton, Rockdale, Dekalb, White, and recently in federal court for the Northern District of Georgia), where she represents the interests of children and adults with special needs in varying litigation, guardianship and conservatorship, and probate matters. As of 2022, Lauren began work as a part-time judge for the Fulton County Probate Court, working to assist the Court with the backlog of cases resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic. As a judge, Lauren is tasked with adjudicating both emergency and permanent guardianship/conservatorship cases.

               Lauren received recognition from the Georgia Pro Bono Project in 2009 and 2010 for providing legal services for low-income Georgians. In 2014, Lauren was nominated by her peers and selected for inclusion in Georgia Trend’s annual publication, “Legal Elite”. In 2022, Lauren was selected as a Super Lawyers "Rising Star". Lauren has been a speaker and presenter at numerous CLE’s, covering topics pertinent to probate work and service as a Guardian ad litem. 

              Since beginning her career, Lauren has represented Georgia clients in countless probate matters, including emergency and permanent guardianships and conservatorships, compromise claims for minors and incapacitated adults, probate and estate administration, year’s support petitions, petitions to determine heirs, and numerous unusual probate matters. Lauren also has extensive experience drafting complex estate plans, and has a special passion for preparing special needs trusts.

             Lauren is very tall, but she has never played basketball. She lives in Suwanee with her husband, three children, a cat, and a dog. In her free time, which is rare, she enjoys listening to true-crime podcasts, watching Unsolved Mysteries and British crime dramas, and scouting the local thrift stores.
