I was audited in 2015 by a major insurance company in the Northwest, the results being a request for repayment in the amount of 100 K total.
I initiated with Nicole Li after the insurance company had gathered up all my chart notes, and come back with the findings that they had overpaid me the above amount for an approximate 18 months window.
My first meeting meeting with Nicole resulted in my requesting a narrower 365 day window as well as a request eventually that the extrapolation add ons be removed.
Quite quickly after these requests were made, they were granted, and amazingly, that reduced my overpayment request very substantially to about 1/4 the original request.
She was exceedingly helpful and generous and personable and I would recommend her 100% for anyone facing something like this.
Right before I signed the final agreement, she went through the legal settlement and reassured me at every turn that we had done very well, and that I was signing at the right time and with the right terms. I was very worried about it, and still am that it will lead to other audits and problems down the road, but talking with her, I have definitely had closure.
If anything like this ever happens again ( knock on wood) I will consult Nicole right away.
I am very grateful that the outcome of the investigation was as favorable as it was. She really helped me in the most gentle and reliable and supportive way. I have never before consulted a lawyer about anything, and I doubt that she does all kinds of law, but if ever I need a lawyer for the occasion, she will be the person that I seek out to point me in the right direction.

Nicole was with me every step of the way, through one of the scariest time in my 30 year nursing career. She saw the pain that an accusation can cause, even when the state is involved. After she said,"Don't worry", I didnt. And my reputation was upheld and my spotless record remains that way. I would trust Nicole with my license , just knowing she is a phone call away, makes going to work the best part of my day.

I first retained Ms. Li to represent me related to a Department of Health (DOH) investigation. Throughout that process I found Nicole to be very smart, very responsive, thorough, and resourceful. The investigation resolved with DOH finding no evidence of wrongdoing on my part.
Nicole then continued to represent me in a lawsuit that I filed against DOH to ensure that DOH protected my patients' confidential information that DOH collected as part of their investigation of me. Nicole's skills as an attorney resulted in fully securing our patients' information and me receiving my attorney's fees from DOH.
I extend to Nicole my highest recommendation, and do so without hesitation.
