“The Nebraska Academy of Eye Physicians and Surgeons has retained Mueller Robak since 1989 as legislative counsel and we have been extremely pleased with the service and advice received. In 2009-2010 a bill directly affecting our members was introduced in the Nebraska legislature, and Mueller Robak provided lobbying and strategic assistance in opposing this legislation. Bill and Katie were always available for consultation, were consistently present at meetings of our executive board, testified on our behalf at legislative hearings and attended technical review committee hearings. We are very grateful for the close attention and sound strategic advice that Mueller Robak has provided our organization.”
