THE WILLIS LAW DIFFERENCE 

Having worked at large, mid-sized, and small law firms, Laura brings extensive private practice experience to Willis Law.  She prides herself on providing high level legal services, while always being accessible and client focused.  She does not subscribe to a "one size fits all" approach to legal services, and appreciates that each client has different objectives and needs.  


Laura takes very seriously the historical concept that attorneys are considered "counselors" at law.  The interpersonal relationships that are forged from, for example, helping a family work through difficult, often overwhelming, issues related to illness and death, or helping an entrepreneur open a small business, are what Laura values most about being an attorney.  


If you are looking for an attorney who prioritizes professionalism, personal attention, and responsiveness, Willis Law is a good fit.       tition Dwnt
