Laura has acted for her clients as the equivalent of an in-house counsel. As such she serves as a valued confidant and advisor; a true Counselor At Law.
As a business law advisor, Laura furnishes advice on all legal matters that arise in the course of business and negotiates and reviews all business agreements for a wide range of matters. She works directly with business owners and their internal management teams and outsources to experts in specialties when needed to provide a full in-house legal business advisory service.
Estate planning doesn't have to be an intimidating, overwhelming process. Upon completing their estates, my clients know that all of their family concerns are addressed and that their estates are properly structured to meet their goals.
