She also served for a number of years as a District 14 Committee Member for the Office of Lawyer Regulation for the State of Wisconsin.

I really do like helping people. My role as a divorce attorney is to de-escalate emotions in the entire process, focus on the most logical angle, and map a course to arrive at the end result for the client.  The goal is never to make the parties hate each other.  It’s unnecessary.”

A former client sums it up best:

Laura utilizes a realistic, effective problem solving approach always with a personalized touch, guided with genuine empathy.”
