Review
Laura was an absolute pleasure to work with. I always want to know everything about how stuff works and what possible outcomes might be had. Laura was not only patient with my myriad of inquiries but also proved to know the answer to almost every one. On the rare occasion she did not know, she told me she would need to look into it and delivered a clear answer to my question with a very fast turn around. Laura's level of detail and organization also helped keep a very stressful process manageable. From the onset of working with her she provided me with a binder of related materials that I could reference. As we progressed, she always gave me any new documents pre-punched for insertion into my binder. In addition to Laura's great work ethic and knowledge, I found her to be extremely personable. I had the feeling that she genuinely cared about me and my case. She was also very easy to talk with and not intimidating like other lawyers I have worked with. Laura is a joy to work with, and she would definitely be my first choice in the future.

Client Review
Laura Mazza has been an absolute pleasure to work with. She listens attentively, is honest and clear in her assessments, and was accessible at all times. She provided me with essential information each step of the way; including filling out and filing paperwork to expectations for appearing in court. If at any point she did not know the precise answer to a question, she researched it thoroughly and provided me with the most accurate information in a rapid amount of time. Her composure, preparedness, and knowledge in and out of court eased any disquiet that I felt. Laura Mazza went above and beyond in her duties, and I highly recommend her to others.

Employment and labor Attorney | May 18
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Laura has the gifts that many attorneys desire - but cannot be taught in a classroom. Having seen her action, I can attest to her natural eloquence and disarming charm. Combine this with her encyclopedic knowledge of labor and employment issues and dedication to her clients, and you have an attorney with skills and wisdom beyond her years who is a tenacious advocate for those injured by abusive employment practices."
Employment and labor Attorney | Jul 26
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Laura and I first met as summer clerks working at Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy in our second year of law school. From the start, I was impressed with her work ethic, professionalism and ability to work well with others in any situation. Since then, I have had the pleasure of seeing her at various seminars and other events in the legal community and have found her to be one of the most well-spoken, cultured and knowledgeable young attorneys in the Bay Area. I hope to have the pleasure of working with her on future matters and look forward to seeing the success of her new firm, Landman & Mazza."

"Laura Mazza started out as my associate at Camerlengo & Johnson in 2009 and is now my law partner at Camerlengo, Johnson, Landman & Mazza, LLP. Laura is a great young attorney whose qualities include the utmost integrity coupled with impressive intelligence, diligence, loyalty and collegiality. Early on it became apparent that I could rely on Laura’s sound judgment and good common sense. Clients frequently tell me how much they appreciate Laura’s positive efforts on their behalf. I highly recommend her."
Employment and labor Attorney | May 31
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Laura Thomason is a confident, poised, and brilliant attorney, who happens to be a great person too. I shared a summer clerkship with Laura, where we both worked on complex litigation for a variety of plaintiffs. Laura's resourcefulness and research skills were impressive even then. Since that time, Laura and I have served as founding Board members with ABC (Attorneys Bettering the Community), which is an attorney volunteer organization. Not surprisingly, Laura has been a leader. She is tireless on behalf of the homeless and underprivileged. I've seen her make it out to volunteer events even while preparing for (a subseqently winning) a jury trial. Her track record speaks for itself. I strongly endorse her to anyone seeking a top notch employment lawyer."
Employment and labor Attorney | May 26

"Laura Mazza is an excellent attorney. I have had the privilege of working with her for the last one and a half years and have found her to be highly competent, professional, and a strong advocate for her clients. I recommend her to anyone looking for a knowledgeable employment law attorney."
