Laurin left a large Seattle law firm to found what would become Schweet Linde & Rosenblum, PLLC. Working with a dedicated group of partners, associates, and paralegals and mentoring young attorneys was the greatest privilege of her life. She worked tirelessly to build on her reputation in the Washington legal community by providing unparalleled assistance and representation to clients ranging from large institutional banks to individual creditors needing assistance to navigate the complex world of collection, enforcement, and bankruptcy. Her creativity and tenacity led her to be selected by her peers as a SuperLawyer for more than a decade.
Laurin obtained her B.S. undergraduate degree from the University of Kentucky, where she was graduated With Distinction, and her J.D. degree from Seattle University, cum laude. She was past chair of the King County Bar Association, Bankruptcy Section, and has served as the Western District representative for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court Eastern District Advisory Committee. Laurin was a contributing author to the Real Property Deskbook, Doing Business in Washington State, and other state and national publications, and was a frequent speaker and subject matter expert in creditor’s rights and bankruptcy law.
Retirement has brought more time for family, travel, volunteer work, hobbies, and fitness, especially running. Leaving an engaging and absorbing career with people she loved working with was bittersweet, but she is grateful for the bounty and engagement of retirement.
