Several years after graduation from law school I realized that if I were to reach my goal of providing legal
services to the health care industry I would have to offer those services differently from the large established firms.
I began offereing my services to health care entities on a monthly flat fee basis so they would have access to an
attorney without worrying about the ever mounting hourly charges. The result is a practice comprised mostly of this
type of attorney-client relationships with clients happy that we can discuss issues before they've spin out of control
into costly litigation. That work is combined with work for clients on the customary hourly basis to create what
I believe is a law office that provides a cost effective service.
General Counsel on a contract basis for various health care entities and local
governmental entities. Clients include hospitals, nursing homes, home health care agencies, physician practice groups and
health care management groups. Specific work includes Medicare and Medicaid compliance issues, design and implementation of
corporate compliance policies, regulatory compliance, contract work in litigation involving health care issues, employment
law, contract review and negotiation, collection efforts, real estate transactions, management of contract services, corporate
structure, inservice to professional staff.
