Our firm is a health law firm in Dallas, Texas with an emphasis on the representation of healthcare providers and practitioners participating in federal and state healthcare programs. The scope of work we perform for our clients encompasses includes:
- provider reimbursement and payment issues;
- provider compliance with health and quality standards, including professional licensing;
- representation of clients in matters concerning fraud and abuse audits, allegations, and sanctions; and
- day-to-day healthcare business issues such as contracts and employment law.
Our attorneys have extensive experience in health law. Prior to founding the firm, founder and director Mark S. Kennedy, served as counsel to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (formerly HCFA). Additionally, he represented the Inspector General and other Departmental Agencies in federal trial and appellate courts and various administrative tribunals.
We make it our business to keep abreast of government and industry developments affecting our healthcare clients. Located at the hub of federal and state healthcare regulatory matters our Dallas office is convenient to the CMS regional office responsible for administering healthcare programs in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas and New Mexico. We are also just a few hours away from Austin, the State’s capital and the heart of governmental matters affecting state and local healthcare programs. 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.
We are a small healthcare law firm by design – six experienced attorneys with a goal of providing our healthcare provider and practitioner clients close, personal attention on their legal matters. For 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.
