She received her bachelor's degree in political science and philosophy from Gonzaga University and her law degree from Seattle University School of Law.
Laura has a background in litigation and has spent the majority of her career directly in the courtroom. After graduating from law school, she became a public defender in Island County before switching sides to prosecution. Laura practiced as a criminal prosecutor for several years, which provided her extensive trial and motions experience. During her time as a prosecutor, she was responsible for conducting trainings for law enforcement, conducting trials, making charging decisions, drafting warrants, and representing the public in the courtroom on a daily basis.
In seeking a new challenge, Laura began working in family law in 2019. She gained invaluable experience at Goldberg & Jones as well as Wakefield Legal before hanging her own shingle. Laura has conducted many family law trials and typically appears on family law motions calendars on a weekly basis.
Throughout her career, Laura has appeared in front of countless judges and commissioners to effectively advocate and sharpen her trial skills. By litigating before many judicial officers, she has gained invaluable insight into the judicial decision-making process, which is helpful in developing individual case strategies for clients. Laura has a strong reputation for success and is known amongst her peers for her diligent advoacy and her exemplary work product.
What sets Laura apart from other attorneys is her dedication and compassion for her clients. Laura is a recent mother to a very active toddler, so she understands the significance of child custody disputes. Laura is very communicative and strives to respond to emails and phone call within 24 business hours. Unlike many other practitioners, Laura limits her caseload in order to ensure optimal representation. She is currently accepting clients.
