Representative Experience

Helping Nursing Homes Recover Unpaid Bills- Before her death, an elderly woman ran up over $75,000 in nursing home bills. Her children, to whom she had given all her money before she died, refused to pay the bill. Ryan Swanson represented the nursing home. Deborah played a significant role in this matter, which involved opening a probate, tracing the deceased’s assets and obtaining a favorable settlement for the nursing home.
