Client and colleague
Laura has worked with a mutual client of mine, Grady County, for over a decade now in the permitting and construction of a large public lake. This project has been a dream of our community for over 60 years and could not have become a reality without her expertise and contributions.

"I worked with Laura for eight years, and she is an excellent environmental lawyer. She understands regulatory processes, the issues facing regulators and the regulated, the Clean Water Act and its many interpretations and guidelines, and diplomacy as needed to work with multiple government agencies to obtain approval of for various projects. She also served as prosecutor for violations of local environmental ordinances and performed that role with a problem-solving attitude."
