We found the right lawyer!
Recently a family member was mistreated by our family physician of more than 15 yrs. The incident involved a stroke caused by undiagnosed hypertension. The trauma our family went through is unspeakable. Not knowing how to handle this, I decided to seek legal advise. Beth came highly recommended as a lawyer that may be able to help. As we presented our case, she listened intently and although she did not make any promises she agreed to review our case. During this last year, Beth has surpassed our expectations! Although compassionate and personable, she has gone above and beyond to seek the truth for my family. Her keen knowdlege of wrongful doings makes her strategy impressive and refreshing! To have her support and belief in our cause is a victory in itself! I must also mention Beth has an incredible staff. Her assistant, Mona, is also very impressive and professional. Mona is kind, very patient, and promptly replies to all my questions. My family feels blessed to have found Beth and to be representated by her organization. Beth and her staff will make you feel good about your cause. My family will always be grateful to her!
