Attorney at Law

Before Lauren Martin emerged as one of Virginia’s top personal injury lawyers, she spent some time enjoying the great outdoors.
From 2013 to 2015, Lauren worked as a wrangler at Triangle X Ranch outside of Jackson, Wyoming during the warm seasons and at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort during the colder months. Surrounded by the rugged, snow-capped peaks of Grand Teton National Park, Lauren spent long days working with horses, taking ranch guests on rides around the park, and learning the value of hard work. Today, this diligence serves her well as an attorney with Breit Biniazan.
Though the jump from wrangler to attorney at law may seem like a stretch, Lauren was destined to be a lawyer. Born and raised in Norfolk, Virginia, Lauren was molded and encouraged by her mother, an art gallery owner, and her father, a Norfolk Circuit Court judge.
“Growing up, I would often ask my father what he did at work that day when we sat down together at the dinner table,” Lauren says. “At the time, I never thought about whether I would become a lawyer, but I definitely noticed that my dad seemed to enjoy going to work every day.”
While wrangling in the Cowboy State, Lauren began to realize how similar she was to her father and how “becoming an attorney seemed like the next obvious step.” That’s when she packed her bags and headed back east to Washington and Lee University School of Law, where she earned her Juris Doctor in 2018.
Making Her Community a Better Place, One Case at a Time
After law school, Lauren worked as a criminal defense attorney at Protogyrou Law and later as a trial lawyer at Stris & Maher LLP. But she has always felt drawn to personal injury litigation, a specialty that allows her to better serve her hometown.
“As a child, you don’t think about the level at which you’re participating in your community,” she says. “Now, as an adult living in the same town in which I grew up, it’s important to be in a position where I have opportunities to make my community better.”
Lauren brings a compassionate yet tenacious spirit to Breit Biniazan. Thanks to her experience, Lauren knows how to fight for the justice clients deserve.
Before attending Washington and Lee University School of Law, Lauren earned her Bachelor of Arts in political science from Washington and Lee University. She is a member of the Norfolk Portsmouth Bar Association, Virginia Bar Association, and Virginia Association of Defense Attorneys.
Outside of the courtroom, Lauren volunteers with the Chrysler Museum, Hermitage Museum and Gardens, and her neighborhood garden club. Though she still rides horses, her main hobby these days is Franny, her 14-year-old pup who will “fall over where she’s standing for a belly rub.”
