Lauren joined Beasley Allen Law Firm in March 2016 as an attorney in our Mass Torts Section. She is working on cases involving the link between talcum powder products and ovarian cancer.
Talc products used regularly in the genital area could increase the risk of ovarian cancer if the powder were to travel through the vagina, uterus and fallopian tubes to the ovaries. Juries have found consumer health care products manufacturer Johnson & Johnson knew of the cancer risks associated with its talc products but failed to warn consumers.
Lauren is a member of the Alabama State Bar, Alabama State Bar Young Lawyers Section and the Montgomery County Bar Association.
Lauren graduated from the University of Alabama in 2010, earning her B.A. in political science with a minor in English. She was a member of Alpha Delta Pi sorority.
She earned her J.D. from Faulkner University’s Thomas Goode Jones School of Law in 2014, graduating in the top 20 percent of her class. While at Jones, she was a scholarship recipient and was awarded Best Brief and Oral Argument – Appellate Advocacy and Best Paper –Family Law; and was a member of the Student Bar Association, where she served as 1L senator and secretary.

Prior to law school, Lauren was a legal intern for the Honorable Judge Eugene Reese, Presiding Judge of Alabama’s Fifteenth Judicial Circuit. During her second and third years of law school, she was a law clerk for a plaintiffs’ firm in Montgomery, Alabama. She joined that firm as an associate attorney after graduating from Jones. Just before joining Beasley Allen, Lauren worked with her father, Branch Kloess, who is also a lawyer, in the practice of criminal law.
A third generation attorney, Lauren was raised in Montgomery, Alabama. She credits her father and her grandfather, Lawrence Kloess, who is retired from the practice of law, as inspiration to pursue her interest in the law. She says they were instrumental in her decision to attend law school.
