Lauren Ledbetter grew up in Calhoun County and graduated from Jacksonville State University in 2008 with a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science. She graduated from the Birmingham School of Law in 2012 and has been practicing law since then in Calhoun County and surrounding counties. Prior to moving back to Calhoun County, she worked in different law firms in Jefferson, Etowah, and Calhoun Counties. In 2014, she opened her own firm, The Law Office of Lauren Ledbetter Freeman, LLC, where she primarily focuses on family, juvenile, and criminal law. Prior to joining the Junior League of Anniston-Calhoun, Lauren became a member of the Board of Directors for Second Chance, Inc (2016-2020), and the Board of Directors for Compass- New Directions Piedmont (2019-2022), and presently as Advisory Legal Counsel. In 2017, she joined Junior League and immediately began participating in all aspects of the Community Impact Committee. For the 2018-2019 league year, she served as a co-chair for the Girls Graduate (G2) program and was awarded the Volunteer of the Year award. Because of her work in the juvenile courts, the Girls Graduate (G2) program was important to her as its primary focus was to help all at-risk girls graduate from high school.

She has a daughter, Chloe, and in her spare time she enjoys reading, hiking, traveling, and spending time with her dogs Olive and Ozzie.
