Though Laura feels most at home in the courtroom, she navigates conflict resolution outside of court just as deftly. Laura has extensive experience representing clients in discrimination, wage dispute and other employment matters, in both federal and state courts, as well as in various administrative agencies. She has been featured in MA Lawyers’ Weekly for her representation in such wage matters.
Laura equally enjoys representing large institutions and companies, as well as smaller businesses. Aside from her courtroom practice, she sets herself apart by building strong, personal relationships with her clients, and implementing innovative solutions and arguments to each of her cases. She believes that the practice of law should be as creative as it is strategic. Laura comes from a diverse civil litigation practice, but now focuses on employment law and litigation.
