  • Jeremy Lyle Bordelon

    I served on the leadership of the Social Security section of a national lawyer's organization with Laura, and I know her to be one of the most driven, organized, professional advocates practicing in this field today. Anyone in Arkansas and the surrounding states would be well-served to hire Laura and her firm for Social Security matters.

  • Bruce L. Mulkey

    Laura is deserving of the highest rating. She is easily one of the top attorneys in Arkansas and you will not find a lawyer that is more dedicated and determined to obtain justice for her clients. On top of all that, she is a really nice person. She has my strongest endorsement!
