    Testimonials & Client Matters

    "I worked on a complex federal litigation matter with Laura over many months, where we represented clients with aligned interests as co-defendants. It involved a high dollar and document intensive intellectual property rights infringement claim against our clients. We successfully defeated the plaintiff, achieving total dismissal of its claims through a fairly difficult procedural strategy that we developed and worked up together. Laura is a superior client advocate, and a great writer, who excels at taking complicated issues and making them understandable in a concise presentation. She is experienced, civil, and very professional. Her sense of humor also makes her a pleasure to work with, and I highly recommend her."
