Laura Peck has 30 years of high-stakes civil litigation experience.
In her three decades of practice, Laura has tried more than 25 jury cases and successfully argued before the Alabama Supreme Court. Her practice is devoted to civil litigation, including health care litigation, professional medical liability, pharmaceutical liability, labor and employment litigation, insurance litigation and appellate advocacy.
Laura’s recent successes include obtaining a dismissal, without trial, of 25 medical malpractice cases within two years. She has also obtained several favorable judgments before the Alabama Supreme Court on behalf of doctors in negligence and defamation cases. In addition to physicians, Laura has successfully represented hospitals, including in a jury trial for a medical negligence case.
Along with her work for clients, Laura serves on the Brookwood Baptist Medical Center’s Ethics Committee, and she frequently speaks to professional groups about litigation and employment issues.
Laura understands the stress that comes with being named as a defendant in a medical malpractice case, because doctors and nurses want nothing more than to help their patients. Unfortunately, even the most diligent doctors and nurses can become involved in a malpractice suit at some point in their career. Laura’s mission is to alleviate some of that stress and guide them through the litigation process, providing both emotional and legal support.
Laura is a former board member of Magic Moments, a wish-granting organization for children in Alabama with chronic life-threatening illnesses. She is originally from Kentucky, but has called Alabama home since leaving Vanderbilt University Law School. Laura has two sons: one is attending Vanderbilt Law and the other is married and working at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Washington, D.C.
