Jamie R. Laws
Jamie began her career at Louis T. Roth in 1997. As a partner, she specializes in tax planning and consulting for healthcare and other professional services businesses. She works with families, high net worth individuals, and small- to medium-sized businesses; she is the go-to professional at the firm for trust and estate tax issues.
Before joining LTR, Jamie worked for a Lexington accounting firm, starting out as an intern while in college. After seven years—and an offer to become partner— she decided to leave Lexington to work at LTR in Louisville. Throughout her career, Jamie has maintained a steady focus on helping clients succeed, often in the toughest and most crucial situations. She has assisted professional firms in developing and improving internal procedures to streamline billing and collection processes. Jamie has also helped create various professional compensation formulas and has even assisted clients in implementing internal controls to help deter employee fraud and theft.
Beyond employing her expertise in the service of clients, Jamie eagerly shares her knowledge with colleagues and the surrounding community. She has appeared in several articles in Business First, has given tax update presentations to various local organizations and regularly teaches in-house training sessions for her LTR peers.
Jamie grew up watching her father, an accountant, work hard to support the family, learning from his example the importance of a strong work ethic.
Jamie was raised in Harlan, Kentucky and currently resides in Louisville with her husband, Chris, and their two children. She devotes much of her free time to pursuits in the outdoors–running, hiking, boating and skiing. She is even a certified scuba diver!
