    I had the pleasure of working with Sheila on an employee benefits case regarding health insurance coverage. After having spent my prior career in insurance, I am usually skeptical of attorneys and coverage. However, Sheila and her sister did an amazing job for me and my client. Their analysis was perfect and the client was extremely happy with the result. Any time someone calls me with an employee benefits question, I refer them to Sheila and her sister. There is no one better in my opinion.

    I had the good fortune to meet Sheila Aiken through an organization within the American Bar Association when I was seeking the expert services of an attorney knowledgeable in employment benefits law. It is my pleasure to endorse her work. Sheila and I worked together on a complicated matter involving a medium-sized company's administration of its Employee Retirement Plan. With limited time and information, Sheila and her firm were able to assess the situation and provide concrete steps and options to help the company move towards resolution. Sheila is an excellent attorney. She is very detailed oriented and always has the best interest of the client at heart. She is a very bright person and an effective advocate for her clients. Having seen her work ethic and her work product, I wholeheartedly recommend her as an attorney. She and her firm are the first folks I turn to for legal issues related to the very complex area of employment benefits law.
