Maria Diamond Authors Article on Ahlborn Medicaid Expansion Repeal

In the March 2018 issue of Trial News (published by the Washington State Association for Justice), Maria Diamond authored an article outlining a part of the new Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 that repeals Medicaid’s expanded lien recovery rights, known as the Ahlborn repeal, which was effective from October 1, 2017, until February 9, 2018. As Maria states, “Ahlborn is reinstated as the law of the land. From this point forward, states cannot take more than their fair share of a Medicaid recipient’s legal settlement/award in a tort case . . . .”

““Maria is such an impressive professional and wonderful individual. She exceeded every single expectation inside and outside the courtroom. During my trial she was faced with a biased and disgruntled jury who had already decided against my case before it even started; but this never hindered Maria. She never gave up on me, even when the jury denied me any compensation. She pushed back and won a new trial, forcing the insurance company to finally offer me a favorable settlement. Her drive to do the best, her passion and dedication for her clients, her overall impressiveness is what sets her apart from everyone else. I appreciate Maria, and I am more grateful than she will ever know. She is one of a kind.” B. Morrison
