Ingram, Laura C.

Laura is a principal in the Firm’s Employment Law Practice Group. She draws upon over a decade of experience advising on employment law matters as well as several years focused on defense litigation. Laura started her legal career advising county government on employment law and other civil matters in Wichita County. After a few years, she made her way back down to Austin to work in private practice, advising and defending client interests in civil litigation matters. Laura then refocused her career on employment law and found her niche, serving in state government as Employment Counsel for the Texas Health and Human Services Commission and then as Deputy General Counsel (Employment Law) and Ethics Officer for the Texas Department of Agriculture.

Laura enjoys helping her clients navigate the complexities of employment law, providing them with timely and comprehensive guidance on a full spectrum of personnel issues. When consulting on any particular matter, Laura makes sure to gather all information necessary to properly assess the situation and understand her client’s concerns, so she can explain any legal risks and potential solutions in line with their risk tolerance. She tries to focus on claim prevention to the extent possible but will help her clients articulate the best defense when claims do arise. Ultimately, Laura’s client-centered approach, personal integrity, and thoughtful communication style helps promote the trust that is indispensable for client relationships when dealing with tough workplace issues.

Laura grew up in Austin and is happy she gets to practice law in the city she loves. She enjoys spending her down time with family, friends, and her two sweet dogs. Laura likes checking out Austin’s many wonderful restaurants and enjoying the outdoors when Texas weather allows. Otherwise, there’s nothing like an evening of dog couch-cuddles while watching a good movie.
