When Laura Cabutto joined Baron & Budd’s litigation team in 1999, her practice concentrated on personal injury, product liability, toxic torts and wrongful death actions involving individuals who had been exposed to asbestos. Since 2005, she has focused exclusively on mesothelioma patients stricken by the aggressive and always fatal asbestos cancer. Mrs. Cabutto has managed and litigated cases in jurisdictions throughout the country.

Mrs. Cabutto returned to Baron & Budd in 2017 to continue her dedication to protecting those who have been harmed by companies that profit from failing to ensure the safety of others. She is honored to represent individuals and families through one of the most medically, emotionally and financially challenging times in their lives.

Laura Cabutto graduated in 1993 from the J. William Fulbright College of Arts & Science at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville with a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science. In 1996 she earned her Juris Doctor from the Thurgood Marshall School of Law at Texas Southern University in Houston. When she is not busy at work representing mesothelioma patients, Mrs. Cabutto enjoys spending time with her husband and their teenage sons, all of whom share a passion for baseball and other athletics in which they can engage as a family.
