Lauren R. Biloski has announced that she is seeking the office of Anderson County Juvenile Court judge.
Lauren is a partner at Ritter, Biloski, and Associates, located in Oak Ridge. She has developed a thriving multi-county practice that includes criminal defense, civil litigation, and family and juvenile law, a press release said.
She is the third candidate to announce a candidacy for juvenile court judge. The current judge, Brandon Fisher, is running for Anderson County chancellor.
Biloski is a graduate of Oak Ridge High School and earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Tennesseee at Knoxville in three years, the press release said. Immediately following graduation, she earned her J.D. from Indiana University in 2006, where she was the recipient of the Norman Lefstein Award of Excellence.
“After graduation, Lauren returned to Oak Ridge and Anderson County to begin her career in service to the community that provided many opportunities for both her and her family,” the release said. “She has dedicated her practice to protecting the safety and well-being of children. Lauren began advocating for the protection of children and preservation of family connections while in law school and made Juvenile Court the primary focus of her practice in 2006.”
The release said Biloski is also very active in the community volunteer for CASA, Toys for Tots, the Junior League of Knoxville, and many animal welfare organizations in Tennessee. She was elected to serve on the Oak Ridge Municipal Planning Commission and has served as legal advisor for numerous animal rescue groups in Tennessee. She has donated extensive legal services to many nonprofits locally and across the state and to parents who desperately need legal representation but cannot afford an attorney. Biloski has continued to accept court-appointed cases and serves as a guardian ad litem for children who have been removed from their families due to abuse or neglect, or whose parents are litigating contentious custody cases.
Biloski has centered her career on protecting those “without a voice,” the release said. “She believes that Anderson County’s success lies in the hands of our youth.”
“Anderson County provided me opportunities, and I want to ensure that positive youth outcomes are achieved for others like I experienced,” Biloski said. “My education and passion for fairness allows me to ensure that families and juveniles are appropriately assessed, that inter-agency networks are effective, and that services are implemented to promote reunification of families and positive reform of children through the Juvenile Court system.”
Biloski said she knows the positive effects that a juvenile court can have on a family, and she wants to ensure that Anderson County has an effective, knowledgeable, and influential Juvenile Court judge.
“I am determined to make the welfare of children and families my paramount concern and will work tirelessly to ensure that the needs of the children and families of Anderson County are being met through my energy, passion and approachability,” Biloski said.
