Health Care Law

We make a difference in the lives of our healthcare clients by redefining traditional notions of legal services by remaining at the forefront of emerging trends and regulatory-driven healthcare business opportunities. We search for unique solutions to help our clients achieve the results they expect.

Our healthcare attorneys understand the health care marketplace and the trends ahead after health care reform became law. We constantly focus on how to add economic value in every engagement. We represent physicians, medical group practices, dentists, physician billing and management companies, imaging centers, hospice providers, home health agencies, ambulatory surgical centers, therapy providers, and other ancillary healthcare ventures. Our healthcare attorneys are in the boardroom with our clients to provide effective, proactive and strategic legal counsel. We communicate frequently with our clients through seminars and newsletters to keep them at the forefront of new health care laws and trends in the industry.

The practice area includes board certified healthcare attorneys, business attorneys, litigators, wealth preservation attorneys, and medical real estate lawyers.
