Our firm is a health law boutique that provides a wide array of legal services, our practice is devoted to health law, with an emphasis in the representation of healthcare providers and practitioners participating in federal and state healthcare programs. We do our best to keep clients out of trouble in the heavily regulated health care industry. The scope of work we perform for our clients encompasses five broad categories: provider reimbursement and payment issues; health standards and quality enforcement in survey and certification; issues related to fraud and abuse sanctions; representation before professional licensing boards; and day-to-day business issues such as contracts and employment law.
We represent our clients in state and federal court, before administrative tribunals and forums, and in appeals. We have a national practice and assist clients (and their local counsel) across the country. With respect to services not offered by our firm, we have established relationships with attorneys who provide such services, and with the permission of the client, we consult with them to ensure that issues are properly resolved.
In accordance with attorney Rules of Professional Conduct, and to minimize risk of misunderstanding at any time throughout the engagement, we enter into written “engagement and legal representation agreements” with all of our clients. These agreements define both the scope of the specific engagement as well as the methods by which legal fees will be determined and become due. Note that, with regards to fees…
- Most clients are billed at an hourly rate
- Contingency fee arrangements (subject to restrictions and limitations imposed by attorney ethical rules) may be made in certain, warranted situations
- Retainer fees (placed in the client’s trust fund account) are generally required for matters that will require substantial time or expense
- Clients receive detailed, monthly statements for all legal services performed, regardless if the engagement is of short or long duration
