Posted by Mrs. M | December 26, 2012
We found her in time!
I had tried for over several months, to find an Attorney that would handle Medi-Cal, and not be afraid to fight the system. Most Attorneys said, "You will never win with Medi-Cal - give up". When I called Julie (referred by another attorney), she told us she would be at our house for a consultation. That happened within 24 hours. She took a load off our shoulders that can't be put in words. Her very capable staff called the next morning and let me know what the next step was. To make a real long story shorter, she was able to facilitate and stop the possibility of us being on the streets within a few months. My husband suffered a massive stroke 5 1/2 years ago and is still totally disabled. I truly don't know what we would have done without finding her. Miss Fiedler is caring, knowledgeable, attentive, and knows the system, which can be very nasty and non-caring. Just ask me I know! I am this wonderful man's wife and his best and most tenacious friend. Thank you Julie - Don't even hesitate to call her!
