We asked Laura:

Q: What can clients expect from you?
A: My clients can expect a compassionate but clear approach to the proceedings.  I explain things in an easy, understandable way, to ensure that everyone knows exactly what to expect.

Q: Why did you choose to work in your specialist area?
A: I chose to work in Care proceedings as no two cases are the same, just like no two families are the same. I want to be able to help people through the care proceedings process and make sure that they have the support they need.

Q: What are your interests outside work?
A: Outside of work I am a keen runner. I am a UK Athletics Accredited Run Coach. I also enjoy attending music concerts, watching motorbike racing, and generally being outdoors.
