“Personal life experiences have taught me that people need an advocate who is willing to work for them and fight for their rights. I became an attorney so that I could be that advocate for those who need someone on their side.”

Laura started her journey in helping others as a law clerk at GT&B in 1998 and continued with the firm when she passed the Ohio Bar in 2001. In July, 2019 she left GT&B to start a new firm with two other attorneys, Schaffer & Associates, L.P.A. Her career has focused on fighting for the rights of workers who have been injured on the job and those who are disabled and unable to work, helping them obtain the compensation they need.
