Lauren C. Pasqua joined Bleakley Bavol Denman & Grace in August 2022, following her employment with the firm as a Summer Associate in 2021.
Pasqua’s love for advocacy began as an undergraduate at the University of Florida, where she participated on the UF Mock Trial team for four years, competing on the national level. This passion led her to California, where she spent three summers working as an educator out of Stanford University. There, she wrote trial advocacy curriculum and lectured to high-school students alongside Stanford Law professors.
A proud Double Gator, Pasqua joined UF’s Levin College of Law in 2019, focusing her studies on intellectual property law. During law school, Pasqua was an enthusiastic member of both UF Law’s Moot Court Team and Trial Team. Some of Pasqua’s accolades on these teams include winning the 1L Closing Argument Competition, getting the verdict in the 38th Annual Raymer F. Maguire Appellate Advocacy Competition, and being deemed “Best Oralist” by the Florida Supreme Court in the 35th Annual Final Four Moot Court Competition. Pasqua gained practical experience as an intern at a family law office, where she worked at both the trial and appellate level, and participating in trials as a Certified Legal Intern with the State Attorney’s Office for the Eight Judicial Circuit. She also enjoyed her time as a teaching assistant for both persuasive writing and trial practice classes—as well as her time coaching the undergraduate mock trial team—as she got to mentor students in her favorite areas of the legal field.
In her spare time, Pasqua enjoys cruising around town on her bike, spending time with her family and friends, and going to the theater.
