Laura has practiced law since 1994, focusing on family law since 2001. Prior to joining McCathern, Laura led the family law section at Albin Roach, PLLC, where she honed her family law practice in Collin County for 20 years. She began her career as an Assistant District Attorney in the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office.

McCathern’s leadership is ecstatic about this latest addition. “We couldn’t be more excited about an addition than we are about Laura. She has been a force in Collin County for some time. Giving her a bigger platform will send both she and our firm into orbit,” said McCathern founder Levi McCathern.

“I’ve long admired what Laura was able to do from afar. She’s a great attorney and great businesswoman and we could not be happier to have her be a part of the McCathern family,” said McCathern Managing Partner Arnold Shokouhi.

Laura’s philosophy on handling family law cases is to resolve the case as efficiently and as cost-effectively as possible. Having handled thousands of such cases, Laura understands and sympathizes with the emotional and financial cost of a divorce. She strives to balance the best interest of her client with the cost of continuing the fight. Her expertise at this balancing act has helped a multitude of clients get a good result at a reasonable cost.
