I have know Laurie for years, as a colleague and friend. She has the utmost compassion and competence, and the work ethic to back it up. She works extremely hard to ensure the best result for her clients in a field that promises nothing and often delivers uncertain and unwelcome results. I still utilize her for the problamatic issues when I practice because her insight and problem solving skills are second to none. I would recommend her in any of her given areas of expertise.

I endorse Laurie with unqualified enthusiasm. She is hard-working, highly intelligent, very much at home in a courtroom and empathetic to clients. She has been with my firm for a number of years and we are extremely pleased that she has continued to work with us. It is terribly unfortunate that this website notes a prior discipline matter right out of the chute. It had nothing to do with her ability to practice law with brilliance and with the very highest of ethical standards that she has demonstrated during her tenure with us and before. I receive nothing but great comments and endorsements for her and her skills from our clients.

Relationship: Supervised lawyer
I first met Laurie when she was the opposing counsel in a divorce case I was handling. Through my interaction with her as my opposing counsel I was able to see firsthand how she works. She is a tough litigant, yet professional. She demands that her clients get good results in their cases. I was so impressed with her skills as a lawyer that we hired her at my firm. We now work together. Having worked with her for the past several years and having co-counseled cases with her, I can say without reservation that Laurie is a top-notch attorney.

I have worked with Laurie for a number of years and appreciate her wisdom in always finding a good strategy for dealing with her adversaries on cases. Where the other side has been cooperative, I have seen her usher a matter through to a quick settlement. Where the conflicts have been more difficult, her case evaluation and preparation make her a formidable advocate at trial.
