About me

      Attorney Laura L. Mall defends local businesses, governments and non-profit organizations involved in employment and labor related disputes.  She focuses on litigation and regulatory issues affecting the employment relations of private, not-for-profit and public sector employers.  Ms. Mall also counsels and advises employers on personnel issues, employee relations and conducts on-site audits and investigations. She is admitted to practice in the United States District Courts for the Southern, Northern and Middle Districts of Florida, the United States Court of Appeals in the Eleventh Circuit, and in the United States Supreme Court. 

      Ms. Mall received her Doctor of Jurisprudence degree magna cum laude from Nova Southeastern University School of Law in 1998 and went on to earn a Master of Laws degree from Georgetown University.  Notably, Ms. Mall studied international civil rights and constitutional law under United States Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy at Salzburg University’s Austro-American Institute of Education.  Ms. Mall also studied law at the Institute of International and Comparative Law in Florence, Italy and in Paris, France. 

       She brings a diverse background with her to the practice of law.  Prior to becoming a legal advocate, Ms. Mall served as television station program director for her local PBS affiliate, and later became an independent television producer of programs broadcast nationally on PBS.  For example, Ms. Mall produced a cooking series at the Florida Culinary Institute years before the Food Channel was on the horizon and she also produced a Polo program at Windsor Great Park, England, where Queen Elizabeth bestowed the match trophy.  Ms. Mall is comfortable working in front of the camera as well.  Besides her many appearances on public television, she appeared as a regular guest on CNN’s legal analysis program “Burden of Proof” with Greta Van Susteren. 

      Ms. Mall is also an active volunteer in her community.  In 2004, Laura was named Volunteer of the Year by both the Palm Beach County School District’s Adult and Community Education Department and Adult and Community Educators of Florida.  She has served on the Sprint Endowment Committee for the Education Network.  In 2005, she received the Pro Bono Gold Award for her volunteer legal work on behalf of the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County.  She currently serves as President of the Palm Beach County Chapter of the Christian Legal Society.
