Laura Shylko LLB

Of Counsel

"The key to good decision making is not knowledge. It is understanding." - Malcolm Gladwell

Laura returns to the Moodys Tax team after a rewarding two-year experience in California, where she assisted with a family business expansion, extensively read through US laws and passed the State Bar Exam. Her goal is to build a cross-border tax and immigration practice while also focusing on Canadian tax planning in the Edmonton market.  While her knowledge of the complicated maze of tax legislation is important, Laura’s priority is to truly understand where her clients need to end up so she can keep them on the path to success.  When Laura is not in the office, she can be found sipping on a coffee at a local park or taking her three children on adventure walks.
