Laura Ann Raymond joined Suisman Shapiro in 2021 as an associate of the firm. Her practice focuses on general litigation including municipal, commercial and personal injury law. Attorney Raymond previously worked as an attorney for The Reardon Law Firm, P.C. where she represented clients in complex medical malpractice, products liability, multi-district litigations, premise liability, sexual molestation, worker’s compensation, and bad faith actions.

While in law school, Attorney Raymond interned at Connecticut’s Health Insurance Exchange, Access Health CT, and helped to ensure Connecticut residents had access to affordable health insurance in the workplace.  She participated in the Asylum & Human Rights legal clinic where she successfully petitioned the United States government for asylum on behalf of a political activist from Venezuela.  She also worked as a certified legal intern at a small law firm that specializes in personal injury, worker’s compensation and criminal defense. 

Prior to attending law school, Attorney Raymond received her Bachelor of Arts degree, summa cum laude, at the young age of 20.  She then began her work helping low-income families and homeless populations to find affordable medical treatment, insurance, and nutritional assistance.  This vocation brought her to law school to help clients navigate the complex legal system.

Attorney Raymond is admitted to practice law in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut.
