Laura commenced her law degree at the University of Pretoria, South Africa, before migrating to Australia and completing her Bachelor of Laws with Honours at the University of Canberra and Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice at the Australian National University.
Since graduating, Laura has specialised in personal injury, working for one of Sydney’s specialist firms before joining Maliganis Edwards Johnson in 2011. Remaining in personal injury for an extended period has resulted in a wealth of claims experience and unique industry insight, culminating in a promotion to Senior Associate in July 2017.
Laura prides herself in being readily accessible to clients who need answers to questions and mitigation of their concerns. She finds it very rewarding assisting injured persons experiencing life changing circumstances, through no fault of their own, to navigate the legal system. Once a vulnerable client knows where they stand legally it enables them to focus on their rehabilitation. Understanding this ensures she processes each claim with commitment and diligence.
In Laura’s spare time (of which she has very little) she loves baking and experimenting with new recipes, savoury or sweet, in her kitchen. Realistically, any time outside of work is spent entertaining her most beloved children!
