Nicole Li at great expense in time and money to herself won for me a historic case against the Washington State Board of Health.
There is no other attorney in the State of Washington who has accomplished such a feat.

I have a solo medical practice. She was referred to me by another attorney firm. I wanted answers to questions concerning forming a corporation in such a manner that I wouldn't expose myself to the risk of violating federal laws - specifically the anti-Stark and anti-kickback laws. Nicole was pleasant to chat with on the telephone. She told me to visit her website to learn more about her company. She assured me that either herself or one of her two assistant attorneys would manage my case. She sent me paperwork via email and I submitted a check to cover a retainer. It was then that things went sideways ...
10 days elapsed without communication aside from confirming that she received the $2000 check. I finally received an email from her explaining that " please note that this is an extremely complex, high stakes area of law. While the facts appear simple on the surface, the legal issues are not always straightforward. A full analysis will take some time to ensure we give you accurate advice. Depending on how our initial analysis goes, we may recommend at some point getting a second view." I responded with "I have selected your company as you have an expertise in this matter. If you think that it will be too complicated then let me know now and I can hire a different law firm. I don't understand why I would pay twice to receive the same service." Her assistant attorney responded 4 days later with "Nicole asked me to get back to you as she is out of town. You are welcome to consult with another firm for this matter." I responded with "i want a personal phone call from Nicole to discuss this matter. it can wait until she returns.". I never heard back from Nicole.
I felt mislead by Nicole. I wish she had just told me that from the start so I didn't waste 14 days until she sent the email informing me that they would need help from a more experienced law firm. Second, I felt neglected when her firm so quickly threw me to the curb simply for standing up for myself. If it was truly that complicated why didn't Nicole tell me that during our first conversation (she possessed all the facts surrounding the formation of the company at that time). Third, it's extremely unprofessional to have an assistant attorney dismiss a client when my relationship had been with Nicole Li.
I quickly called up an established law firm who told me they don't handle this matter but referred me to another law firm that did handle it. This attorney was quick to take my phone call, explain to me what would be the key issues and gave me an estimation of what it would cost.

Nicole's very human, sympathetic ear combined with her lightning fast responsiveness and obvious legal acumen can make a very stressful legal situation feel manageable. I enjoyed working with her, her fees were extremely fair, and she was so helpful to me and successful with my case that I would recommend her to anyone.

Nicole Li is awesome! She is the best attorney I have worked with for many years. I am a doctor in alternative medicine. An insurance company once audited us and required us to refund over $140,000. It is ridiculous but it happened. The company is very demanding and tough to deal with. Luckily enough, I found Nicole Li. After I hired her, I learned that she has very good strategies to manage the case and approach whoever you deal with. Nicole is also passionate and professional. She represented us to negotiate with the company and made a peace. I even could not believe the case was settled with such a good result. She saved our business and helped us have survived. I now can focus on my business again. Thank you, Nicole!

I can strongly endorse Nicole Li as an attorney with an extensive administrative and health care background. When working with her, I was thoroughly impressed with her poise, intelligence, and tenacity. She is exceptionally resourceful and able to navigate the sometimes convoluted regulatory system. Her communication style is open and approachable. I would highly recommend her to any medical professional.

Nicole represented me in a recent case with the WA state DOH. I was somewhat blindsided by the case and it was extremely comforting to have Nicole on my side. She was highly responsive, often replying to my email withing minutes. She also went out of her way to check in with me and keep me updated during long waiting periods where we had not heard back from the DOH. Throughout the process I had absolutely no doubts about her ability and could not be more thankful for her help and support.

Nicole was very professional. She was very prompt in responding to my concerns and readily available for questions. Her responses were thorough and she explained legal issues in a matter that was very comprehendible to someone with limited legal knowledge. Nicole was reassuring throughout the process and was very good at following up on my matter and keeping me informed. She is very knowledgeable and has a good relation/network with various agencies. I truly appreciated the concern and care she took with my case. I have no hesitation in highly recommending her.

Nicole is by far the best attorney I have had represent me. She is compassionate, understanding, and very knowledgable. As a doctor, I have worked with many attorneys over the years and had to be represented by them as well. Her prompt response to my calls/emails were much appreciated. She is easy to talk to and actually cares. I couldn't give any other attorney a higher recommendation.

Nicole Li was hired by my employer to represent me and I could not be more pleased with her work. She was always quick to respond and communicated clearly about the information she needed from me, steps in the process, and updates to the case. Although Nicole was hired by my employer, I was her client and she worked directly with me and address my individual concerns. Without Nicole, I would have been stuck trying to navigate through a difficult and confusing situation without much guidance. I am thankful for her great work and would not hesitate to recommend her to others.
