Laura Nieusma is a member of Clarkston Legal’s family law litigation team. While her primary focus is family law, Laura also provides support for the firm’s criminal defense practice on both the trial and appellate levels.

Laura graduated from the Michigan State University College of Law with honors in May 2015, sitting for and passing the July 2015 bar exam; she has a bachelor of arts from St. John’s College in Annapolis, Maryland.

During law school and during her brief time as an associate attorney, Laura has gained experience working in law firms dedicated to solving family law problems and defending the accused. This has allowed her to develop many of the practical skills a new lawyer needs while she was still enrolled in law school full-time; she has been able to hit-the-ground-running.

Despite attending college in Maryland, Laura is a Michigan native and spends her free time exploring the local lakes, parks, and recreation areas around Clarkston and Waterford with her husband and their dog.
