Laura Parry



As the second member of the firm, joining in 1999, Laura thrives on learning about client businesses and practicing in the wide variety of legal work presented by the firm’s business clients.

Laura developed her legal experience and entrepreneurial spirit through private practice – striking out on her own immediately after receiving her law license and then later joining Klevatt & Associates, LLC.  Her work as Administrative Law Judge and supervisor of administrative law judges for various city and state agencies since 1997 and her leadership as a Commissioner in city government sharpens her ability to sort out facts, resolve issues, communicate clearly and help others make thoughtful, well-reasoned decisions.

A juris doctor from Illinois Institute of Technology’s Chicago-Kent College of Law, Laura received a Certificate in International and Comparative Law and competed on two of the school’s national trial advocacy teams.  During that time, she also studied law in Russia and Poland, receiving a Diploma from the University of San Diego International Law Institute.  She served as president for the Chicago Kent Association of Trial Lawyers of America and as a research assistant studying law school clinical programs.

Professional development and commitment to the community are important to Laura.  She periodically serves on Boards of Directors for charitable, education, professional and arts organizations and is involved in and has taught seminars for professional organizations such as Chicago Bar Association, Illinois State Bar Association, National Association of Administrative Law Judges and Illinois Association of Administrative Law Judges.  Laura enjoys theatre performance and is a member of SAG-AFTRA.
