With over 20 years of diverse legal experience including civil litigation, negotiation, counseling and consulting, Laura’s passion is offering clients personal and powerful representation on employment law issues. The Noble Law provides clarity at work through forward-thinking, trusted employment law counsel, and assertive representation on key employment law issues. The firm works with individuals experiencing problems in their employment relationship and companies wishing to minimize litigation risk. She founded Noble Law on the principle that an agile, efficient, and transparent specialized employment law firm could outpace “big law” competitors.
Laura developed this conviction from her own legal background and experiences. After graduating from the University of Maryland, she moved to New York City and worked as a prosecutor in one of the largest and most challenging District Attorney’s offices in the county. Laura then worked with a sizable civil litigation firm in Manhattan before moving to a nonprofit in a general counsel and advocacy role.
Although all of these experiences were valuable and informed her work, her true dream was to start her own employment law firm. Laura began The Noble Law Firm in 2009 with the goal of providing exceptional employment law representation to individuals and companies. As an employment attorney, her clients know that she genuinely cares about them and will work diligently to achieve the best possible outcomes on their behalf. Laura is a seasoned litigator and enjoys the excitement of this work as well as the satisfaction that comes from providing exceptional representation to her clients.
Laura is also dedicated to giving back to the community. From winning her law school’s public service award back in the 90’s, to today’s work with legal services, Laura and her employment law firm execute on a commitment to improve access to legal services in North Carolina.
In her spare time, Laura enjoys Tae Kwon Do black belt training, running and travel. She lives in Chapel Hill with her husband and three active children and one exceptional Labradoodle.
