Originally from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the family won the immigration lottery and moved to the US two years ago. HLA is a public interest law firm in Massachusetts.

Lisa's health insurance problems began after she left her husband. She struggled with illness, and tried to find health insurance that would cover both her and her autistic son. Health Law Advocates helped her untangle the paperwork, made phone calls on her behalf, and ultimately helped her son see a doctor who specialized in autism. It was the first time he had been able to see an autism specialist.
