I grew up in Albuquerque, graduated from Eldorado High School, and studied American and Latin American History at the University of Kansas. I also played first base and outfield for the Jayhawks - Rock Chalk Jayhawk! After KU, I spent two summers playing and coaching baseball in Eskilstuna, Sweden and then spent several more years working as an International Envoy Coach for Major League Baseball in South Africa, Germany, Indonesia, Singapore and China. These were life-changing experiences, to say the least.

I came home to New Mexico and attended the University of New Mexico School of Law. My practice focuses on civil litigation with an emphasis in medical negligence and personal injury litigation with a particular interest in cases involving eye injuries caused by optometrists or ophthalmologists.

I have successfully appeared before the New Mexico Court of Appeals and have successfully argued in the New Mexico Supreme Court, which was an absolute thrill.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing guitar, exercising and being outside with my beautiful wife Cara and our adorable kids.

Lauren Hund, JD, PhD

I graduated at the top of my class from the UNM School of Law in 2022, after taking a leap of faith and leaving my previous career as a statistician.  Andy Scholl Law is a perfect fit for me, because the small-size of the firm gives us the opportunity to develop personal relationships with our clients and put our full and best effort into every case.

Prior to attending law school, I received a PhD from Harvard University in biostatistics.  I then worked as an Assistant Professor at the UNM School of Medicine and as a Principal Member of the Technical Staff at Sandia National Laboratories.  Through these experiences, I worked with a wide array of professionals: physicians, epidemiologists, scientists, and engineers; authored reports and peer-review publications in the areas of empirical causation, risk assessment, and epidemiology; and taught statistics courses.

While at UNM Law, I grew to love both the law and legal community in New Mexico.  I was actively involved in the Moms of Law Group and served on the School of Law Curriculum Committee.  In my spare time, I wrote five children’s books on contract law to share my passion for the law with my two young kids.

In my spare time, I enjoy running, hiking, and spending time with my family.  Ultimately, I love any excuse to explore a new part of our beautiful State with my family.

With a genuine curiosity for legal research, case law, and politics, a career in the legal field happened organically for me. I graduated in 2016 from the University of New Mexico where I majored in Political Science and minored in American History with a concentration in Social Movements in American Politics. I spent several years working in the Food and Beverage Industry with a good portion of my time dedicated to tending bar and exploring all the wonders of the modern cocktail renaissance the world is currently experiencing.

Between 2018 and 2020, I gained valuable work experience as a legal assistant in Albuquerque, while simultaneously completing the Post-Degree Paralegal program at Central New Mexico Community College.  Since then, I have worked in law firms in Hawaii and New Mexico and have experience supporting attorneys and their clients in various legal fields, including criminal defense and small business law. Overall, being a Paralegal allows me to fuse my affable demeanor with my passion for the legal process in a unique and intellectually challenging way—which I absolutely love!

When I am away from the office I enjoy sewing, exercising my bartending talents and knowledge, studying Art and Design, and spending time with my two dogs, Santa and Sitka.
