Jodi has congestive heart failure and her husband Bobby has diabetes. Because of confusing and bureaucratic paperwork they were denied their rightful benefits from Medicaid and the resulting medical bills threatened their ability to remain independent. One lawyer helped them restore their benefits and made it possible for them to be reimbursed for the money they had already spent. Today they have the dignity of living their lives under the roof that has been their home for the last 30 years. There are thousands of seniors in Florida just like the Guins -- doing their best to enjoy the time they’ve earned from a lifetime of loving their families and contributing to their communities. All they ask for is what’s fair and just and the needed assistance from special lawyers, lawyers they could not otherwise afford, to make sure their rights are protected.
