  • Matthew S. Patton

    I have know Laurie for years, as a colleague and friend. She has the utmost compassion and competence, and the work ethic to back it up. She works extremely hard to ensure the best result for her clients in a field that promises nothing and often delivers uncertain and unwelcome results. I still utilize her for the problamatic issues when I practice because her insight and problem solving skills are second to none. I would recommend her in any of her given areas of expertise.

  • David William Heckenbach

    I endorse Laurie with unqualified enthusiasm. She is hard-working, highly intelligent, very much at home in a courtroom and empathetic to clients. She has been with my firm for a number of years and we are extremely pleased that she has continued to work with us. It is terribly unfortunate that this website notes a prior discipline matter right out of the chute. It had nothing to do with her ability to practice law with brilliance and with the very highest of ethical standards that she has demonstrated during her tenure with us and before. I receive nothing but great comments and endorsements for her and her skills from our clients.
