About Laura Pilon
Cohen & Lyngseth is very pleased and proud to introduce its newest associate lawyer, Ms. Laura Pilon.
Laura has both an interesting and diverse educational background. Initially, she pursued and obtained her dental hygienist certification from Algonquin College. Laura then went on to pursue a B.Sc. (Honours) in Neuroscience at Carleton University. Finally, Laura attended law school at the University of Ottawa, receiving her Juris Doctor in June 2016. Her call to the Bar was in June 2017.
While Laura has been exposed to various areas of law, she has found her calling to be that of family law. She enjoys working directly with people and helping them through what often can often prove to be difficult and traumatic periods in their lives. She brings many qualities to the table—most important among them being common-sense, compassion, empathy and intelligence—qualities that will ensure she becomes a much sought-after advocate, now and in the future. Laura appreciates the benefits of a non-adversarial, settlement oriented approach for both the parting spouses, as well as for their children. If need be, however, she is more than capable of assisting clients through the complexities of the court process. Laura also has experience in dealing with Children’s Aid Society matters.
While the rigors of a legal career can be draining and demanding, Laura does try to lead a balanced lifestyle. During her time off, Laura enjoys the great outdoors: in particular, white water rafting, kayaking and jogging.
Laura also has volunteer experience with a variety of community organizations, including the Youth Service Bureau, Carleton Neuroscience Society (which she founded), OUTLaw, ACORN and the Carleton University Kayak Club.
Welcome to the team, Ms. Laura Pilon
