Laura’s experience in injury law is a benefit to her family law practice. “When I worked with injured individuals and especially with injured workers, I experienced firsthand how my clients were affected by the events I was helping them through. I saw how the pain was real. It wasn’t an esoteric law school exercise anymore—this was a person’s life, with real consequences. Any person going through a traumatic event, or major changes in their family, needs a compassionate, helping hand, and an advocate, which is what I strive to provide to my clients,” said Poschen.
