About Me:
   

Lauriann is a bright, energetic and creative attorney. She is particularly knowledgeable in probate matters. In fact, she is my "go to" attorney on all issues involving probate.


I had the pleasure of opposing Lauriann Wright on a heavily contested conservatorship and trust litigation matter and can personally attest to her persistence, creativity, and skill in estate, probate, and business litigation.
