Laurie is a very talented and savvy attorney. Most lawyers forget that they are dealing with other humans and remove the "people approach" when dealing with their clients. Laurie does the exact opposite. She is accessible, reliable, and she doesn't shy away from other strong-armed attorneys. I used her for an employment related matter. She always responded to my emails/calls in a timely manner and she always spoke to me like she was talking to an “old family friend”. If you’re looking for a lawyer who will speak to you with respect and dignity, regardless of your educational background or employment status, Laurie is your attorney! She is very good – she won my case!

I highly recommend Laurie. She is a very knowledgeable, thorough, and very thoughtful attorney. She prepared several employment documents for me, including an employment contract proposal, a non-solicitation and confidentiality agreement, and an independent contractor agreement. I was impressed with her willingness to really investigate and understand issues relating to our niche industry, making sure that many provisions in the agreements were customized to our needs and actually enforceable by courts. It is very assuring to see someone care that much about her clients and the quality of her work.

I have had a few lawyers represent me in various situations but Laurie stands out as someone who really got involved and understood all the intricacies of my case. She was always quick to respond to calls/emails. I highly recommend this lawyer.
