Laura Wagner is an associate at Fishwick and Associates, PLC where she is the legal research and writing specialist.

Laura received her bachelor's degree from the University of Virginia in 1982, and her J.D. from the George Mason University School of Law in 1990. She is a member in good standing of the Virginia State Bar.

Laura clerked for the Honorable David G. Lowe, United States Magistrate Judge for the Eastern District of Virginia after law school. She was in private practice with the firm of Wagner and Wagner with her husband, Rob, where she focused on appellate work, representing indigent individuals in civil and criminal matters, and legal research, analysis and writing. She has worked with John Fishwick for the past twenty seven years, specializing in legal research, analysis, and writing.

Laura is passionate about protecting the rights of those who have been treated unfairly and had their rights violated; and individuals who have been defrauded by institutions of higher learning. Her work has been instrumental in obtaining favorable case resolutions for our clients in many cases, including cases involving First Amendment peaceful protests, hazing issues at Virginia colleges and universities, improper medical treatment and the use of excessive force at local jails and state prisons, accreditation fraud at institutions of higher learning, and violations of Title IX and Title VII in employment and schools.

When she is not working, Laura enjoys spending time with her husband, children and grandchildren, exercising, and volunteering in the community.
