Attorney Laura Petrie
Attorney Laura Petrie has handled multiple cases for the company I work for. I have always been pleased with the quality of Laura's work. Attorney Petrie's responses to unusual situations are knowledgeable , thoughtful and prompt. The outcome of each case Laura has handled for me has been excellent. The staff at Petrie and Stocking are polite and helpful and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend Attorney Petrie to anyone who is seeking an efficient, experienced lawyer .

Simply the right person
Laura is simply a great attorney! In settling my sister's estate she was a pure professional as well as kind, and caring throughout the process. I was dealing from out of town but felt from the very start that I had hired the right person. She did such an excellent job that in the end the other family members involved agreed to let her handle the entire case even though they had their own representation. I also appreciated her attention to costs. Her fees were extremely fair given the complexity of the situation. If she practiced in my home state I would use her and would never hesitate to refer her to anyone looking for an estate attorney.
