Laura Wilson, Esq.Attorney
Mrs. Wilson attended Baruch College in New York City for her undergraduate education. After graduating, she worked for three years as a litigation paralegal at a large plaintiff’s asbestos law firm in NYC. During that time, Mrs. Wilson assisted in the winning of multiple trial verdicts totaling in excess of $31 million. After those three years, Mrs. Wilson moved to Colorado for law school at Denver University Sturm College of Law.
During her first year at the Sturm College of Law, Mrs. Wilson was recognized as a “Best Advocate” in multiple mock trial competitions. She also had an internship with the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office’s Appellate Division and Problem-Solving Courts. In her second year, Mrs. Wilson became certified to practice law under the Colorado Student Practice Act. With that certification, she participated in the Sturm College of Law Civil Litigation Clinic where she represented petitioners in civil protection order hearings in cases involving domestic violence and handled negotiations involving wrongful evictions of disabled persons. Under the Student Practice Act, she also continued her internship with the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office in County Court where she took part in multiple jury trials and assisted in the prosecution of many cases.
Mrs. Wilson continued her internship with County Court in the First Judicial District into her third year of law school. She graduated from the Denver University Sturm College of Law early, in December of 2018. Prior to Mrs. Wilson’s graduation, she was extended and accepted a job opportunity as a Deputy District Attorney at the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office. Mrs. Wilson took the Colorado State Bar Exam in February 2019 and was admitted to the Colorado State Bar in May 2019.
Mrs. Wilson worked two years as a Deputy District Attorney. During this time, she prosecuted cases ranging from traffic cases, driving under the Influence cases, to child abuse cases, domestic violence assaults, and hate crimes. In total, she has tried over 30 jury trials.
Throughout all of her experience, Mrs. Wilson’s driving factor has been the victims of her cases. That is why the Dan Caplis Law was an easy choice for her to continue her career. Mrs. Wilson now continues to fight for victims of catastrophic injuries and the justice they deserve every day as an attorney at Dan Caplis Law.
