Because what the world needs is more people who have come alive."Laurie Gilbertson is a dynamic, passionate and poised communicator, whether in the courtroom, the classroom or on television.

She is a former prosecutor who relished the courtroom experience and the opportunity to do justice for victims and their families when prosecuting homicides, organized crime, sexual assaults and violent felony cases during her ten years in the District Attorney’s Office in New York City. She translated that extensive trial experience into creative and comprehensive on-air TV legal analysis for national and local media outlets. After some time spent litigating white collar and financial crimes, Laurie transitioned into the non-profit sector, where she created, produced and presented litigation courses with the Practicing Law Institute, the top legal education organization in the country.Laurie studied Government and English at Cornell University, where she wrote features for the Cornell Daily Sun and honed her public speaking by delivering hourly news updates on the campus radio station.
