Laura is particularly passionate about the area of abuse law, and works with our team of abuse lawyers to help people who have experienced abuse get the justice and compensation they so richly deserve. This is a rapidly changing area, as modern law finally comes to reckon with previously unaddressed historic crimes.

“I recognise and empathise that often we are seeing people at the worst time in their lives, or when they must relive those hard times. Whether clients have experienced abuse or have had medical insurance claims denied, helping them is very rewarding work. I’m dedicated to making a difference in people’s lives.”
