Laura is one of the firm’s finest litigation attorneys and handles all her cases with determination and confidence.  Laura prides herself on fostering strong attorney-client relationships in every case she handles.  Whether in court, depositions, or mediation, Laura uses her knowledge of the law and the courts to provide her clients expert guidance and counsel throughout the litigation process to achieve the best possible outcome. 

In her 22 years of practice, Laura has gained extensive experience litigating cases in many different areas of law, including employment law, business and commercial litigation, real property, construction disputes, and trust and estate disputes.  Additionally, Laura’s early experience trying cases for the Lane County District Attorney’s office has given her a useful insight into the court system.

Laura is a regular speaker for Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) Speakers Forum and The Law & You Speaker’s Bureau, and frequently volunteers her time at the University of Oregon School of Law, judging Moot Court Competitions, assisting with first year law students’ Mock Trial, Appellate Advocacy Program, and Mediation and Client Counseling competitions.  She has served as the President of the Board of Directors for CASA and for the Rose Children’s Theatre.

Laura enjoys spending time with her two daughters who are actively involved in musical theater, acapella, jazz choir, alpine ski racing, water polo and swim team. Laura has become a great asset to the Rose Children’s Theatre and Roosevelt Middle School in assisting with back stage costumes and makeup.  She and her husband Dave have also spent countless hours at swim meets and on the ski slopes with their daughters, at the Willamette Alpine Racing Program as gate judges and finish timers, and in a variety of other ski racing and swim team volunteer positions.
