About Me


After a number of years at a premier international law firm, Laura left big law to open her own practice.  Laura’s mission is to provide individualized, exceptional service to help clients realize their goals. She practices client-centered lawyering, educating her clients on their legal options which empowers them to make their own decisions.  Her clients feel taken care of and confident in their decisions and courses of action. They never suffer from the insecurity of having done something they did not understand because their lawyer told them to!  Laura has years of experience in litigation, immigration, and trusts and estates matters.  Her practice currently focuses on trusts and estates litigation.

  • Alexander Michael Kipnis

    Laura is the rare example of an attorney who is not only hyper-skilled technically, but also hyper-attentive to the client's needs. I had the privilege of working with Laura on a complex multinational internal investigation, which she handled brilliantly, overcoming the multitude of cutting-edge legal issues, the extreme time pressure, the complexity of the problems, and the cross-border challenges. Laura is a lawyer who knows not only how to talk, but more importantly, how to listen. On top of that, she is simply a pleasure to be around. I wouldn't hesitate to have Laura as my own attorney, and highly recommend her.
