I received this email from Jill Bechtold, Esq. of Mathis & Murphy, P.A. very early on the morning of January 14th, 2013:

In case my secretary Kristen didn’t already contact you, I wanted you to know that I received the original HIPAA release from you and we are sending to Woodland with a request for the release of all records pertaining to your mother.

I will let you know when we receive a response from Woodland.




I replied a few hours later:

Dear Jill,

Thank you very much for the confirmation.

I should let you and Kelly know that last week I sent an email to attorney Steve Phillips of Pincus & Currier, LLP, to let him know that I would no longer require his services and that I have retained new counsel for my mother’s case.
