Vital advocate in a complicated process
June is a vital advocate in a complicated process. There's no way we could have gotten our family member on Medicaid on our own; there's just too much to know and do, and it's so easy to make a permanent misstep. It cost us a substantial amount to secure my parents' assets, but for us it was very worth it. The nursing home would have devastated the remaining assets within a year and a half, leaving them destitute. June is amazing, timely, and worth it.

Fantastic lawyer
In 2019 I received a notice from Estate Recovery group of Washington DSHS. Because of my husband’s age, his illness, and our healthcare, it was quite shocking that they were seeking to recover funds. At that point, I had already been looking for a lawyer to set up a trust for our adult children, one of whom has special needs. Three days prior to my appointment, I sent all the information regarding the estate recovery to June Weppler. When I arrived at her office, she had already resolved the problem. Setting up the trust, June demonstrated excellent legal knowledge as well as wisdom and care. She is an amazing lawyer. If you need to provide for a vulnerable person in your family, you should contact June Weppler.

Outstanding Assistance
My father was having some complications with his care and June was recommended to assist us through the Medicaid/medicare process. After my initial consultation with June, I knew she would be able to assist us to get my dad approved in a timely manner. She explained everything in a manner a lay person could understand and she took the necessary time to lay out the entire process as well as some problems that may arise with my dad's circumstances. She was very responsive to our needs and responded quickly and thoroughly to questions or concerns. She made a very stressful process easy to navigate as she did the hard work necessary to get Medicaid/medicare approved. I am certain without June's help, I would still be wading through the mounds of confusing DSHS paperwork and my dad would still not be approved. I cannot express enough how grateful I am for June and her representation of my dad during this difficult and trying time. I would highly recommend June to anyone who needs assistance with Medicaid/medicare or elder law planning. I also want to acknowledge June's assistant Evie. She was a lifesaver during the process. She was easy to get in touch with and would relay information to June or find out answers to questions for us. My entire experience with Weppler Law was pleasant and if I ever need additional assistance with any type of elder law, June will be the first person I contact.

An answer to prayer
June took on my Mom's Medicaid case, which looked impossible. She was able to reverse a decision which rarely happens. She helped us though a tough time, helping us advocate for our Mom. My siblings & I felt she listened to us and worked very hard to get the best possible outcome for our Mom. I call her an answer to prayer.

Took care of everything, including my metal well being!
Following the unexpected death of my youngest child, there were legal matters that needed tending to, I had a difficult time putting a full sentence together. I explained my situation to June and she very carefully and methodically spelled out what the law required and what I could do myself or what she could do and what each option would cost. I could not pay her fast enough. What perhaps impressed me the most was how punctual she was on meeting her time obligations and how closely she kept in touch with me to explain each step of the process. I found her not only compassionate but fair. I was also blown away by the fact that she will answer her phone herself and answer all my questions on the spot! Every exchange she and I shared I felt more and more confident in her and her abilities. I would hire her again without hesitation.

DSHS help
She was extreamly helpful in getting my wife on Medicaid. She handled communication with DSHS and ensured both our wills and other legal papers were appropriate under current circumstances. She also kept us informed of the status of the application, our rights, and the financial requirements we had to meet. Thanks June!

Attentive, Adaptable, Intuitive
What started as a collaborative divorce turned into a contentious one and June did an amazing job thinking on her toes, listening attentively, working quickly and adapted to the change in climate deftly and expertly. Her intuition about the other party helped greatly in getting to an agreement and her excellent communication and thinking saw everything through to an good ending. THANK YOU JUNE!
