Graduating from from Baylor Law School in 1979, Laura Fowler began her career as a very green Lieutenant Junior Grade in the US Navy Judge Advocate Generals Corp aboard the warship USS Guadalcanal in 1980. Chasing saboteurs and scoundrels through exotic ports in East Asia and the Western Pacific, she learned a lot about the world and went from being not much more that a citizen who dutifully voted to a fierce patriot who loves the United States and worships the United States Constitution for the opportunities afforded our citizens which are unlike any other in the world.
Since returning to Texas in 1983, she has confined herself to avenging and defending the rights of many wonderful people and institutions in the state and federal courts of Texas. Her greatest calling, however, is to help her clients design ways to never see the inside of a courtroom.
Education: J.D., Baylor School of Law, 1979
