In college, Laura’s passion for working with and helping children had her thinking initially about becoming a child psychologist. When she discovered her knack for public speaking and debate, she decided to pursue a law degree. Her special interest in representing individuals who have been victims of a crime started when she worked at the Chester County District Attorney’s office during law school. Since then she has been repeatedly inspired by the people she represents and actively develops her knowledge and skills to better represent her clients.
Laura is a level-headed, yet fierce advocate who vigorously fights for justice for her clients. She takes pride not just in her legal abilities, but also in helping her clients through the process of transitioning from feeling like a victim to becoming a survivor. Whether she’s representing a victim of a terrible crime, a devastating medical error or a life-altering injury at a construction site, for Laura, the legal system is a means for her clients to get back on their feet.
Laura understands that when someone is seriously injured, the needs of that person and their family are changed in an instant. A catastrophic injury can put someone out of work and cause medical bills to become overwhelming. The legal process can help provide financial compensation to address these needs. Laura also understands that it isn’t just a case, it’s a life, it’s a story and it’s about standing up for what is right. That is why Laura is a trial attorney, because she excels at telling her client’s story and fighting to right the wrong that was done.
Laura explains, “The civil justice system cannot change what happened, but it can allow a person to do something about it, to begin to heal and to make sure what happened to them doesn’t happen to anyone else.”
