Dwana W Best Lawyer Cert

Dwana Waltman:

My name is Dwana Waltman and I was licensed to practice law in 1996. I graduated from Texas Tech School of Law. I’m a mother to two. I’m married.

I manage the intake department at Lanier Law Firm. I also handle settlements for solvent cases, and I do lien resolution and work on the Medicare Secondary Payer Act issues that our clients have.

One of my jobs is once our clients get their settlements, we want to hold on to as much as we can for them. And so then one of the ways we help with that is help them with their lien resolution. Any medical liens they might have on their case, we try to make that as small as we can for our clients. So those are the things I do at the firm, and I’ve been working here for about 15 years, I think.
