Laura R. Robinettrobinett@pwrfl-law.com
Laura moved to Seattle after attending college in Santa Barbara, California. The daughter of teachers, she started her working life in the Seattle Public Schools with the intent of becoming a special education teacher. However, this experience with underserved and disabled communities led her to a passion for advocacy and a conviction that the law can have a profound effect on the lives of those who have been historically marginalized.
Laura attended the UW School of Law, where she served as President of the Center for Human Rights and Justice, as a member of the Moot Court Honor Board, and as a managing editor of the Washington Law Review. Throughout law school, Laura competed in mock trial, winning UW’s competition two years in a row and finishing as a quarterfinalist at the National Trial Competition. In 2019, Laura graduated with honors and was selected to join the Order of the Barristers. She was also selected by her peers as the Charles Z. Smith public service graduate for her commitment to public service law.
After graduation, Laura worked as a criminal defense attorney before joining the team at PWRFL in 2022. She lives in south King County with her husband and her couch potato dogs. In her spare time, she enjoys playing and writing music with her husband and friends.
