Meet Laurie Koller

Attorney & Counselor

Laurie Koller knew she wanted to be an attorney by age 8.

Now, as a seasoned personal injury attorney and mother of two, Laurie knows that deciding on a career before the third grade is slightly unusual, but in her words, it was fate.

“I was probably born to be a lawyer. I have no lawyers in my family, and I had no idea what a lawyer was, but my kindergarten report card said, ‘Laurie has a strong sense of justice.’’’

That strong sense of justice really never went away.

Ms. Koller has now been practicing law since 1991, beginning her career doing defense work and later transitioning in 2002 to her current practice area: civil representation of survivors of sexual assault, abuse, and injury.

Throughout her career, Ms. Koller has helped countless people journey through the traumatic experience.

When dealing with a sexual assault trial, she knows it is a process that is particularly painful and difficult for those asked to recount an episode of life they would rather forget. Though her job is to help bring her clients’ abusers to justice, Ms. Koller has made it her mission to see her clients grow “past and through” the trauma they’ve endured. She works to make sure her clients are armed with the resources to recover and heal.

Growing up in West Virginia as the great-granddaughter of a coal-miner who lost his life in the mines, Ms. Koller knows that injury often does not just harm the individual. It affects the whole family and especially those dependent on the victim that is injured.

This is why she fights hard to assist victims both in the courtroom and out.

It’s goes beyond winning a trial and occurs when her clients no longer need her – and they don’t need her because they’re on their way back to health and wholeness. For Laurie, that’s what success is.
