Graduating from Baylor University School of Law in 1979, Laura began her career as a very green Lieutenant Junior Grade in the United States Navy Judge Advocate General’s Corp aboard the warship USS Guadalcanal in 1980. Chasing saboteurs and scoundrels through exotic ports in East Asia and the Western Pacific, Laura quickly developed fierce patriotism and a much deeper appreciation for how remarkable our United States Constitution and our nation really are, and gratitude for the opportunities our great nation affords.
Since returning to Texas in 1983, Laura has confined herself to avenging and defending the rights of many business entities, charitable institutions and individuals in the state and federal courts of Texas. Her greatest calling, however, is to design strategies to help her client to avoid ever seeing the inside of a courthouse.
