Laura holds a Bachelor of Arts in History from Boston College and a Master of Arts in Russian and East European Area Studies from Indiana University. She earned her Juris Doctor from Case Western Reserve University School of Law, and supplemented her classroom education with externships in the Cuyahoga County Law Department and Cuyahoga County Witness Victim Service Center. These extracurricular opportunities helped her to hone her written advocacy and allowed her to appear in court as a student attorney, interact with clients, and prepare witnesses for examination at trial.
Before joining Zausmer, August & Caldwell, Laura worked in a large insurance defense litigation firm, where she became adept at reviewing and interpreting medical records in addition to drafting pleadings and motions, summarizing reports and transcripts, and supporting a busy discovery and trial practice.
Outside of the office, Laura is a runner, an avid reader and lifelong learner, and a devoted fan of the Boston College hockey team.
