Laura M. Garcia
Laura believes that every case, like every individual, is unique. She doesn’t slap on a one-size-fits-all strategy; instead, she tailors her approach to ensure it complements her clients’ unique needs.
In her professional journey, Laura has drafted client services agreements in nearly every industry, secured default judgments for clients, successfully navigated the complex waters of mergers and acquisitions, and championed in the resolution of an array of claims ranging from discrimination to wage and hour disputes. And while her expertise is evident in her results, she doesn’t just hand over advice; she empowers her clients with the tools they need to thrive. If there’s a training session on sexual harassment, discrimination, or reasonable accommodations, chances are Laura is leading it.
When she’s not in the courtroom or behind her desk, Laura is deeply entrenched in the community, with a particular focus on minority and women-owned businesses. Her commitment shines through in the free seminars she offers on contracts and business strategies for that community.
As for Laura away from work, she loves nerding out on television and film, especially anything released by A24, and is a fan of the arts in general, including photography, music, and poetry. Laura is also an avid gamer and dog person turned cat person (but don’t hold that against her!).
