She founded White & Quinlan to focus exclusively on plaintiffs who have been discriminated against, marginalized, harassed, or injured.

Laura has achieved impressive verdicts and settlements throughout her career. She insists on staying involved in every stage of the litigation process, which has led to a strong record of success with claims involving auto accidents, medical malpractice, and defective products, among others.
