Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I have had many cases with Ms Feldmeier. She is well versed in workers compensation law and represents the employer side of the case very well.

Ms Feldmeier is one of those that can do a great job for her client the right way, which earns the respect of the other attorneys and leads to better resolution of tough cases."
