“Lara is one of the brightest legislative lawyers I’ve ever had the pleasure of calling a colleague. While I worked with her at the Human Rights Campaign, Lara's legal research was thorough, her drafting was impeccable, and her ability to digest difficult material was vast. Lara was also able to meet incredibly tight deadlines and work productively with a number of different stakeholders (internal and external) at once.”
