Interests

Laura has a love of salsa dancing, baking,  playing netball and travelling.

Clients and their families often require our support after a life-changing incident and upon receiving large sums of compensation. The most valued part of my role is working with a wide range of the most vulnerable clients to help them rebuild their lives, ensuring all decision making is in their best interests when they have lost the ability to do so themselves. It is an incredibly rewarding practice area which enables me to build longstanding and potentially life long professional relationships with my clients.
