    Client Comments

    "I have been an HR professional for over 20 years and have worked with several large legal firms in Seattle. I have always received good service. Nothing, though, can compare to the service I routinely receive from Mr. Belfiglio. He responds quickly to my inquiries and his turn-around time on complex ERISA issues has been phenomenal. His expertise is apparent in all of his communications, and the counsel I have received has been superb. Mr. Belfiglio has also assisted me in bringing major issues to resolution, and has coached and counseled me in effectively communicating complex issues to both the CEO and my Board of Directors. I have the utmost respect for Mr. Belfiglio. I admire his commitment to service and value his guidance. "

    "Becky Williams is a national expert for health care privacy matters. As inside counsel for a health care organization, I handle as many of these matters as I can. However, I know that when I have reached the limits of my knowledge, I can go to her to get the appropriate attention, analysis and expertise to help me further address my clients' issues. She also conducts practical and useful seminars for her clients and the general public and is always willing to tackle new and different issues that arise in this area of health care law."
