She joined Anderson & Boback in her first year of practice. Laura excels at drafting effective agreements – co-parenting agreements, marital asset agreements, etc. – that allow her to directly get the outcome her client desires. She is also highly effective at researching the various interpretations in the law with respect to asset distribution and co-parenting arrangements, and that makes her an effective legal arguer.
Laura is motivated by being helpful and needs a challenge. In Laura’s own words, “…there is no greater profession in the world than the law for those with those two basic needs.”
