Laura grew up in Sioux Falls and graduated on the Dean’s List from Augustana University in 2005 with a Bachelor of Arts in Government & International Affairs where she played basketball for the Vikings all four years. Following undergraduate studies, Laura attended Creighton University School of Law, graduating cum laude in 2005.

Laura believes that the most enjoyable part of practicing law is the relationships she develops with her clients. Because of this, Laura focuses on operating her practice in a collaborative way, listening to what the client wants and consulting her clients on how to achieve that outcome within the bounds of the facts and the law presented. As anyone that has met her will share, Laura enjoys litigating matters on behalf of her clients, never fears confrontation, but understands and appreciates that each case requires a different approach and adapts her practice and communication accordingly.

Laura’s practice involves regularly conducting trainings for employers, managers, and adjusters, attending on-site visits to best understand the needs of her clients. Additionally, Laura conducts workplace investigations and works with employers to prevent and manage workplace issues including harassment, discrimination, performance issues, employment policies, FMLA, OSHA, and other related topics. She regularly represents insurance companies in disputes regarding negligence and liability issues and enjoys counseling clients on compliance with workers’ compensation and employment laws.

Laura has two boys she adores, and she spends her time happily chasing them around to various sporting events and cheering them on.
