Within a few months of being called to the bar, Laura was able to efficiently assist her clients in settling several ongoing litigation matters and she continues to do so.
Laura’s insurance practice includes automobile, occupiers liability and commercial general liability policies. Her general litigation practice includes contract disputes, debt recovery, property issues and corporate/commercial disputes. She is continuing to grow and learn in the areas of general litigation and estate litigation.
Laura has represented clients before the Provincial Court of Alberta and the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta.
Laura received a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Law and Society from the University of Calgary. She was called to the Alberta Bar in September 2019. While at the University of Calgary, Laura volunteered with the Elizabeth Fry Society as a youth court liaison at the Calgary Courts Centre. Laura attended law school at Thompson Rivers University, where she acted as president for the faculty's Oral Advocacy Club as well as a student clinician at the Community Legal Clinic. She continues to participate in the Pro Bono Law amicus program and volunteers her time in morning chambers to help self-represented litigants. In 2019 she successfully managed the several demands articling brings on while still taking time to contribute to the community and won an award for most shifts attended by an articling student in the Amicus program.
Value to Clients
“As Spanish is my first language, I am able to efficiently provide services to Spanish-speaking clients who are not comfortable with the English language. This ability allows me to create a safe space where my clients can comfortably communicate their legal issues.”
Outside the Office
Laura plays the flute, guitar and alto saxophone, and enjoys singing. If she is not playing instruments or singing, Laura enjoys going for a hike or reading a book.
