My mission is to provide effective legal representation for Frederick County residents as well as personal service to our clients.
The guiding principle of my practice is respect for the client and their goals. I will counsel and educate each client about their legal rights and options to empower clients in making informed decisions, decisions which impact their lives in significant ways and shape the future of their families.
All client matters will be handled in a professional manner, and I regularly communicate with current clients.
Knowledge of Current Law
We perform diligent legal research in crafting our arguments to the court and work closely with our clients because we are committed to pursuing individual client goals.
"Laura is a person who cares about people and I feel lucky to have encountered such a knowledgeable, family-centered individual to help me think these important details through."
