Laura graduated from the University of Puerto Rico with a degree in Political Science. In December of 2013, she graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Inter-American University School of Law.
During law school, she was U.S. District Judge Gelpi’s Teacher Assistant, and completed internships with both the U.S. Attorney’s and Federal Public Defender’s office, where she became a passionate advocate for the defense of indigent clients. After being an intern and a voluntary in this office, she officially joined our team in 2014 to work with Amendment 782, a project that helped over 1, 300 indigent clients in our district to reduce their sentences.
She is admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of Puerto Rico, the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit and the United States District Court for the District of Puerto Rico.
