“Very professional and friendly
We had our estate documents prepared by Laura. Despite being a young attorney, one may think she has no experience. My experience with her is the contrary. She was very approachable and answered all the questions we had and had a lot of suggestions. She came across very professional yet friendly.
Highly recommend her!”
