In August of 1997, Ms. Laster became a licensed attorney in the state of Wisconsin and quickly realized her skill and passion for helping clients achieve justice in the criminal and family courts. In September 2000, after gaining several years of invaluable experience at two local Milwaukee law firms, Ms. Laster formed Laster & Associates.
