Ms. LaFortune is a second-generation attorney, licensed in the State of Arizona since 2001 and the Federal District Court for the District of Arizona since 2007. She holds a B.A. from the University of Arizona, a J.D. from Pepperdine University, and an LL.M (Master of Laws) from Arizona State University. Ms. LaFortune elected in 2012 to return to law school and earn an LL.M in E-Commerce and Technology (May 2012) after realizing the extent to which every facet of the law is touched and tweaked by computers and the Internet.
Ms. LaFortune most recently served as In-House Counsel for Seacret Direct, an international direct sales company specializing in high-end skin care products from the Dead Sea. She also previously served as the Assistant Town Attorney for the Town of Queen Creek and Town of Fountain Hills, Arizona, and has tackled a wide array of legal matters in fourteen years of consulting. She is most often noted for her skill at negotiating agreement among multiple adverse parties and meticulously drafting documents.

She has drafted, negotiated, and seen to fruition the first-ever understanding between the Pinal County Deputies' Association and the County, regarding working conditions.
She has been liberally praised for her personal skills and warm, approachable air, which give her an ability to be an un-lawyer type of lawyer, allowing clients to feel comfortable to ask questions and be proactive and involved in their representation.
