    Laura Powell took over court appointed case of a friend of mine 2 years into. She immediately went to work on filing motions to get this done. After many delays by the Prosecution she finally got her day in court. Because of her belief in her client's innocence, she stuck with her and never wavered. After 3 and 1/2 long years, my friend has her life back because of the successful defense from Laura Powell as her court appointed attorney.
