Laura is the type of attorney that you see on television shows like "Law and Order." She's a formidable opponent, and extremely logical and rational. One thing that I loved about having Laura as my counsel is that even if she asserted that we should take a certain action-----she would still be weighing the strategy associated with taking that action up until the very last minute.
Laura is very STEALTHY. Her mind SHREDS information, down to the finest detail.
In addition to her legal prowess, Laura is extremely nurturing. There were many instances in her time spent with me where she gave me practical advice for my specific situation that had nothing to do with practicing law. She remained accessible via phone and text, even at night and on the weekends.
If you need an attorney who is going to go the extra mile to not only provide you with representation but support then Laura is your person. She's argued cases in front of the Supreme Court and more.
What touched me the most about Laura, was her willingness to work with me financially. She's certainly seasoned enough, to not have to do that. She did that because she believed it was the right thing to do and there were many instances in which she would say "Look, that will work itself out. Lets focus on the case." Her character as a human being is what shines even brighter than her legal prowess.
Another thing I want to mention is that when Laura drafted motions on my behalf, they were completely solid. She filled her motions with tons of case law, shutting down the emotion based arguments of the opposing counsel. HIRE LAURA!
