Testimonials

I cannot say enough good things about Stebner Gertler Guadagni & Kawamoto. After my Mom suffered an unexpected illness, I was left as her medical representative and decision maker at a fairly young age. I soon found myself in a position where I felt my Mom was not being cared for properly by the facility she was placed in, and I felt completely powerless and helpless. My Mom had always taken such great care of me, and seeing her in a position where I could not intervene and do the same for her was heartbreaking.
~ Ashley Campbell

My mother’s dementia prohibits her from expressing her feelings but I know she would be grateful for the time and energy Stebner Gertler Guadagni & Kawamoto gave on her behalf. I am so very grateful for receiving a referral to Stebner And Associates. I was beginning to doubt Mom would receive a just outcome to her falling incident at a board and care facility. Karman expended her time and energy for my Mother and she is now in good care.
~ Rick Smith

Almost two agonizing years ago, my mother became a victim of elder abuse. I didn’t realize what it was, until trying to understand what was happening to my mother I became confused, frustrated and then frightened by my mother’s declining health. I needed answers and I was not getting them from her caregivers. After asking family and friends, one of which is an attorney, I was referred to Kathryn. I met with Kathryn, she listened, and read notes I had made regarding my mother’s health and care, and what subsequently happened to her. Kathryn discussed with me the steps that would occur once she took Mom’s case and then she took the time to calmly answer all of my many questions.
~ Marcia Hart
