Biography: After graduating cum laude from Oklahoma City University School of Law, Laura Payne went to work for one of the leading insurance companies in the nation. By the time she decided to open her own law firm in 2004, she was lead attorney in that office in charge of ten lawyers and thousands of cases in the Las Vegas valley. She decided to open her own firm because she realized that the average person was not receiving adequate representation, and that the insurance companies were using their power and wealth to undervalue the injuries and property damage sustained by those people. Since then, Laura has gone on to help her clients obtain millions of dollars in personal injury cases by battling the insurance companies at their own game. She has represented people with injuries ranging from death to quadriplegia to herniated discs to whiplash injuries. Having worked with so many clients and families, she knows the personal and emotional toll an injury can take. The Law Offices of Laura Payne, Esq. strive for 100% client satisfaction and she is available via text and online 24/7 to handle client needs. Laura helps clients with every aspect of their case from the property damage to the medical treatment to the final settlement and every issue that arises along the way. Having spent time as a disc jockey and newspaper reporter prior to becoming an attorney, Laura developed writing skills while working with and meeting people from all walks of life. She is proud of the diverse client base and enjoys talking to people about their legal issues. Laura does not maintain a practice where clients are passed off to unskilled associates or paralegals. She accepts a select number of clients so that she and her staff can provide clients with the individual attention they need and deserve.
Philosophy: Laura established her law firm to help people deal with insurance companies. If you are injured in an accident or you have a loved one who was injured or killed in an accident, you need someone on your side with experience and knowledge to handle your claim. The Insurance Company is never on your side and is always out to settle each claim for the lowest amount possible. You need an experienced attorney to fight for your rights and protect you and your family from unfair claims practices. The sooner you contact an attorney, the sooner you may receive a fair settlement. Contacting an attorney after an accident is imperative to protect your health and financial wellbeing.
Laura will make sure you are treated with compassion, respect, and dignity. Your case will not be handed off to paralegals or inexperienced attorneys; she will personally meet with you to discuss your case. Phone appointments and hospital visits are also available for your convenience. YOU focus on getting well. SHE will focus on protecting your rights.
