Client Testimonials

  • There are no words that can express the feelings of gratitude and relief I have that you helped us.

    “I wanted to thank you again for all of your help. My daughter would not be in treatment without your help. I can never thank you enough, there are no words that can express the feelings of gratitude and relief I have that you helped us, and I believe saved my little girl. Taking her back to Timberline Knolls was very difficult in many ways, I wish UBH could know the damage they have done to her by having her go in and out like this. When she went into Timberline Knolls the first time she was not happy to go exactly, no one wants to go into treatment, but she was open to going in and ready, for the first time, to really look at her issues and work hard to get better. When she had to leave Timberline she expressed that she wished she could have stayed because she felt like she was finally at a place where she was getting better and, though it was hard, she was really opening up and dealing with her issues for the first time, something she has had a hard time doing. I just wanted you to know that she was going down to a really bad place and without you I don't know what would have happened except that she would not be at Timberline Knolls right now getting better and I thought you should know this. With unending gratitude.”

  • The arguments you made on our behalf at the mediation resulted in a more positive outcome for our case than we could have otherwise expected.

    “We appreciate that you found merit in our case, and that you were both willing and able to be present at the mediation. We believe that the arguments you made in our favor to the mediator were able to influence the outcome towards resolution that we could feel satisfied with. In the end, we believe that your counsel, your support, and the arguments you made on our behalf at the mediation resulted in a more positive outcome for our case than we could have otherwise expected. Throughout you were always professional, but direct and clearly firm on our position. We thank you for your efforts to resolve our dispute to our satisfaction, and wish you continued success.”
