Laura is a Senior Children Law Solicitor at Ringrose Law. After qualifying in Personal Injury in December 2018, she has since re-trained in Children Law and joined the Children Team in the Winter of 2020.
Laura is incredibly passionate about helping others and has a particular desire to help those involved within domestic abuse and children law cases. During her time at University, Laura engaged in a number of pro bono projects and volunteered as an independent domestic violence adviser. Laura enjoyed the variety of work that comes with Children and Family law cases and has always wanted to continue that within her career.
Laura also has experiences and interests outside of work, in particular her voluntary work with the Girlguiding Association. This has provided Laura with the experience, skills and confidence to help and support families, parents and children during difficult situations and has been rewarding to witness the growth of some of the children she works with.
During her daily role, Laura works on both domestic abuse cases and children matters – supporting individuals of all ages to access the support and protection they require. Laura has a particular passion for supporting victims of domestic abuse and works closely with two National Domestic Abuse Panels, assisting victims of domestic abuse and their families all over the Country.
Laura deals with a lot of private children work, including situations involving the breakdown of a family ‘unit’, both of a pressing and recent nature and where conflict has only arisen post-separation, or years later. Laura’s priority in these cases is always to ensure the children’s interests are represented in the best way and she can signpost to various support networks, where appropriate. Laura also assists clients with childcare proceedings, child contact agreements, care orders and contact orders.
Free 30-minute consultations can be offered the last Friday of every month, these appointments can either by conducted face to face at the Lincoln office or over the telephone.

Outside of work, Laura is heavily involved in the local community and church. Laura spends time volunteering with the local church, Civic Society, Girlguiding and Headway Lincolnshire and is a member of three different Committees.
