LAURA COMFORT, Calgary Medical Negligence & Serious Personal Injury Lawyer

Laura Comfort joined Cuming & Gillespie LLP upon her admission to the Alberta Bar in 2017 and became a partner in 2022. She has an extensive academic and professional background that combines scientific, medical, and legal knowledge. This multi-faceted experience uniquely positions Laura to provide exceptional representation and counsel to individuals suffering from serious personal injuries, including those arising from medical malpractice.

Prior to her legal studies, Laura completed her Bachelor and Master of Science in Kinesiology. She then completed her Bachelor of Nursing and worked as a registered nurse with Alberta Health Services in the areas of general medicine and community and mental health. She worked with a range of special populations and ages, including children and adolescents, indigenous adults, and remanded inmates.

With her thirst for knowledge not yet satisfied, Laura tackled law school in 2013, where she achieved Dean’s List status for each year of her studies and graduated in 2016. Laura was then fortunate enough to be offered a clerkship with the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench (as it then was) and then to finish her articles with Dentons Canada LLP.

Laura understands that every one of her clients faces their own complex medical issues that create significant hardship for their personal and professional lives. Drawing on her multidisciplinary background, she skillfully provides the care and guidance to help clients navigate both the legal and medical systems effectively and obtain the best outcomes possible.

Outside the office, Laura volunteers with a number of organizations, such as the Alberta Lawyers Assistance Society, Alberta Civil Trial Lawyers Association, and the Canadian Bar Association. She also enjoys bodybuilding and skiing in her spare time.

“Laura Comfort at Cuming & Gillespie LLP was amazing! She settled my MVA within my ideal time frame and for slightly higher than my ideal payout. Turning things over to her was the best decision I made. The stress of this settlement was off my shoulders as soon as I made the decision to let Laura handle it and then I could focus on healing. Thank you Laura!”
