Laurie Lacoste


Attorney Lacoste was born in Massachusetts and in early childhood moved to New Hampshire where she has lived since. She graduated from Notre Dame College with a BA in Paralegal Studies in 1996 and earned her law degree in 2003. She was admitted to the New Hampshire and Massachusetts Bars and the U.S. District Court for New Hampshire in 2004, to the U.S. District Court for Massachusetts in 2009 and in 2010 was admitted to the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit.

For over 25 years Attorney Lacoste has worked for law firms in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Since her admission to the New Hampshire and Massachusetts Bars in 2004, Attorney Lacoste has represented clients in civil litigation, probate litigation, personal injury, medical malpractice, worker's compensation, family law, employment law, and estate planning and administration while working at a prominent New Hampshire Seacoast law firm as well as her own practice in Portsmouth.

Attorney Lacoste previously served as Assistant County Attorney at the Carroll County Attorney's office where she prosecuted many felony and misdemeanor appeal cases before a jury.

Attorney Lacoste's colleagues describer her as “an excellent attorney committed to doing first rate legal work” and as someone who “has a passion for the law and the legal process second to none.”

In her spare time, she enjoys scuba diving, bicycling, kayaking, hiking and music.

Attorney Lacoste is a member of the American Bar Association, Massachusetts Bar Association, New Hampshire Bar Association, New Hampshire Association for Justice, Strafford County Bar Association, and Rockingham County Bar Association.
