Laura J. Busian Schmidt brings with her a variety of experience, including business, nonprofit, landlord/tenant, real estate, and estate law, as well as extensive litigation experience. She prides herself on providing legal services that are client focused, innovative, and effective, and she partners with each of her clients to help them successfully navigate the issues they are facing.
Laura grew up in Morris, obtained an undergraduate degree from the College of Saint Benedict in St. Joseph, and obtained a law degree from William Mitchell College of Law (now Mitchell Hamline School of Law) in St. Paul. Following law school, she served as a judicial law clerk to Judge David C. Higgs in Ramsey County, then worked for a Minneapolis-based law firm thereafter.
