Ms Austin was extremely professional, knowledgeable and compassionate. This was a personal injury case of a special needs family member. Our family was blessed to have someone with integrity to help us with this case.


Excellent Lawyer! My son's life was a mess with separation and divorce (still pending), but the good news is Laura helped him keep the custody of his precious daughters. Laura took the time to listen and hear my son's priorities and from there she started the "ball rolling" with her expertise. Don't know of many lawyers that work Saturdays, but my son needed her on a weekend and by cell phone, she was there assisting him through important decisions! Amazing!
