From the Blog

Lisa Dillman helped me with issues related to my mother’s eligilibity for MedicAid. She provided solid support and answered my questions in plain English. She also allowed me to manage some of the required submittals myself. She was a great resource. Dale

Medicaid Client

Lisa represented me during a custody case involving my two-year-old daughter. She constantly checked up on us to see how we were, and kept me informed on all information and documents. My favorite thing about Lisa was that I could talk to her like a friend, rather than a legal figure. She understood, from a mother’s point of view what was going on in my head and heart and did everything in her power to keep my mind at ease. She still occasionally checks in to see how my daughter and I are, and I would recommend her to anyone. Francesca

Family Law Client

Lisa Dillman and her colleagues were responsive, helpful, and caring when it came to taking care of me. I did not feel as if I was a client. Lisa truly does care and listens so intently to her clients needs. The honesty and integrity that Lisa and her colleagues represent is insurmountable. Thanks Lisa for all you have done for me… Natasha
