When you first enter Riften, it becomes obvious that the Thieves Guild maintains a high level of influence over the happenings of the city, yet Laila seems convinced that she has things under her control. Through her ambient dialog, it is made apparent that she doesn't find the Thieves Guild a problem. The court officials also assuage her concerns, telling her that nothing is wrong.
She has two sons, Harrald and Saerlund. She believes Saerlund has gone crazy due to his dislike of Ulfric Stormcloak, and has tasked her court wizard Wylandriah with determining the cause of her son's sickness. This may be a front however; if you become a Thane of the Rift, she may confide in them that while she supports the Stormcloaks, she has little faith in Ulfric himself.
If you are aligned with the Imperial Legion during the civil war and captured the Rift, or traded Riften for Markarth during Season Unending, she will be removed as Jarl and be replaced by Maven Black-Briar. After this, she can be found in the Palace of the Kings in Windhelm.
