Growing up on a ranch, Laura was instilled with a strong work ethic and impeccable attention to detail. This drive and dedication ultimately led her to law school, where she served as Vice President of the USD Moot Court Board, a member of the USD Trial Team, and a Graduate Assistant. During her 2L summer internship at Bangs McCullen, Laura realized her calling was to assist clients with the estate and business needs. As such, after graduation and successful completion of the bar exam, Laura joined our Rapid City office. Her practice focuses on the areas of estate planning, probate, and business law.

Laura is a member of the South Dakota Bar Association, Pennington County Bar Association, and the West River Estate and Financial Council. In her free time, she enjoys running, hiking, and helping her parents and brother on the family ranch in Martin.
