The Cochran Firm Dothan

Lauren McAlpin


Fifth Third Center 424 Church Street,
Suite 2000 Nashville, TN 37219

Attorney Lauren R. McAlpin seeks to stand up for her clients in and out of the courtroom.  Born in Louisville, Kentucky, she received her undergraduate degree from the University of Kentucky.   She moved to Atlanta, Georgia after graduation to attend John Marshall Law School where she graduated at the top of her class.  She was active in the Black Law Students Association and received numerous awards for her academic achievements.  She also participated in the school’s Moot Court Board as a competitor and student coach. 

After receiving her Juris Doctor, Lauren went on to represent clients in cases involving personal injury, entertainment, and transactional law.  Additionally, she has worked as a child advocate attorney and has represented children in aspects of the foster care system and their dependency proceedings in Dekalb County Georgia.  She credits this work for her experience in representing unprotected populations. 

Attorney McAlpin believes that her law practice is more than a career, but a life calling, and often reflects on the words of Muhammad Ali that say, “service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.” 

After her time in Atlanta attorney McAlpin moved to Tennessee with her husband who serves in the United States Armed Forces.   Because of her background and personal philosophy for service, she found The Cochran Firm – Nashville to be the perfect law firm to facilitate her commitment to be an advocate for underserved people in the Nashville community.
