Lisa

Patient Leader

I have been an attorney for over 30 years. Over the last 7 years, my practice has focused primarily on helping those suffering from eating disorders, get access to treatment. Insurance companies are loathe to pay for the treatment of this life-threatening mental illness that kills more people per year than any other illness. We have had great success not only in fighting for our client's rights to treatment but also in changing the mental health parity laws see Harlick v. Blue Shield of California, 656 F.3d 832 (9th Cir. 2011). In my work as a board member of the Eating Disorder Coalition, I lobby congress and the senate for changes to laws that affect eating disorder patients.
