The attorneys of The Health Law Firm routinely represent allopathic physicians and osteopathic physicians before the board of Medicine and the Board of Osteopathic Medicine in many different types of cases.  A few of these are listed directly above.  We have decades of experience in doing so. 

Received notice of an investigation of a patient complaint against you and need representation?  We have done it.

Received a subpoena for medical records and need advice?  We have done it.

Have you received a notice that you must appear before the Board of Medicine or Board of Osteopathic Medicine to answer questions about your application for a medical license?  We have done it.

Whether it is a Department of Health investigation regarding a complaint made by a patient, an audit by Medicaid or by a medical insurance company, or the threat of a medical malpractice case, our attorneys have experience in defending the physician in these types of cases.

At the first notice of a possible complaint, audit, or investigation, you should contact us to begin legal representation.  Most medical professional liability (medical malpractice) insurance companies will pay your legal expenses for such legal representation.  Don’t waste this benefit or blow the opportunity to mount an active defense at the earliest opportunity.

Not happy with the advice being given by your current attorney?  We are available for second opinions.

We are usually available on short notice or on an emergency basis, if needed.

We also routinely represent physicians accused of being impaired because of drugs, alcohol or mental illness.  We negotiate and provide legal representation for doctors being forced to undergo compelled mental health examinations or who may be referred to the Professionals Resource Network (PRN) or other peer assistance or physician health program.

We can represent you in administrative hearings (federal or state) Board of Medicine hearings and civil litigation in state or federal courts.

Our attorneys also provide legal advice on structuring business ventures involving medical practices and doctors, buying and selling medical practices, incorporating medical practices, reviewing and negotiating health care contracts and all aspects of the practice of medicine.  We can provide formal legal opinion letters and assist in conducting due diligence for purchases, mergers, acquisitions and financing of medical practices and related businesses.  We have sued to dissolve illegally owned medical practices and have structured legal health care management companies which comply in every respect with laws and regulations.

We routinely represent physicians who are the subject of hospital medical staff peer review proceedings, disciplinary investigations, and clinical privileges fair hearings.  To read more on what we can do in this area, click here.
