Laura started working in law firms in 2007, qualifying as a solicitor in 2009, and has specialised in family law since qualification. Laura has worked in Manchester since 2012 and has developed a good reputation both amongst her peers and the charitable/support sector in the city. Laura’s ability to identify and meet her clients’ needs along with her dedication to ensuring legal services are accessible to everyone, especially the most vulnerable in society, led to her being awarded “Lawyer of the Year” at the Made in Manchester Awards in 2015. She was also shortlisted in the North West Young Professional Awards the same year.

Laura’s clients appreciate the calm and reassuring support she gives them and her holistic approach. Her firm but fair attitude and attention to detail help her achieve the best possible outcomes for her clients.
