Career History

Prior to finding the Lay Law Office, Ms. Lay worked in Washington, DC at a large corporate firm primarily in white-collar criminal defense. However, a long time interest in forensic and criminal law and helping others who could not afford legal representation led her to finding a private practice focused on criminal defense.

While in law school, Ms. Lay worked as a student attorney with the Wisconsin Innocence Project where she investigated and litigated post-conviction innocence claims and with the Forensic Science Reform Committee on a legislative proposal to strengthen forensic science in Wisconsin. She’s also represented juvenile clients for the Wisconsin Public Defender’s Office as a law student.

Always interested in public interest, Ms. Lay taught with Teach for America at a public school in Southeast Washington, DC, prior to her career as an attorney. Although Ms. Lay loved teaching, her true calling was advocating on behalf of her clients in the court of law.


Ms. Lay completed her undergraduate coursework at University of Wisconsin-Madison and Princeton University. She received her Juris Doctorate from the University of Wisconsin Law School and her Masters of Arts in Teaching from American University in Washington, DC.
