Paralegal - Personal Injury
Lara is originally from Portland, Oregon and recently moved to Richmond, Virginia. Prior to joining the Pendleton Law Team, Lara worked in the Environmental Law field for several years in various capacities. She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Gender Studies from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. Lara is a paralegal with our personal injury department and is one of the first members of our staff to assist with new clients. She helps to explain the personal injury process, communicating with clients to make certain they are up-to-date with the status of their case, and ensures the attorneys have the necessary paperwork to move the case forward.
"I love connecting with people and helping them through difficult times to achieve justice."
When Lara isn’t helping clients, she enjoys spending time with her two dogs, Phoebe and Blue, and she loves to run. Lara’s currently training for her first marathon in Richmond in the fall of 2021. We’ll be on the sidelines rooting for her!
