Areas of Focus
I am a full service business attorney with several areas of focus.
Business Organizations and Transactions
When organizing your
business or negotiating contracts and agreements, both a legal and business evaluation of alternatives are necessary. I can
help you evaluate legal risks and corresponding business trade-offs from both sides of the equation. My services include
general business law such as business formation and incorporations, including drafting, review, and negotiation of contracts
and agreements. Very important is the advice I can provide to my clients regarding employment issues.
No area of business is subject to as many legal and regulatory pit-falls as health care. Whether it's navigating
the complex issues of fraud and abuse, Stark laws or the complex regulations that govern Medicare, Medicaid, I can provide
guidance in an understandable, practical and economical form. My twenty-eight years experience in health care as
a registered pharmacist, hospital director and a practicing health care attorney has benefited all types of health care entities including
hospitals, physician practices, nursing facilities and businesses providing ancillary services.
Real estate transactions, estate planning and probate matters appear deceptively simple and many believe they
can save money with readily available "fill in the blank" forms. In reality, transactions accomplished in this manner
eventually cost much more in time and fees than the initial guidance of a qualified attorney. Whether your buying your
first home or a multi-million dollar development sight, preparing your first will or needing complex estate planning, probating
a simple estate or dealing with complex estate tax problems, I can provide the legal advice and guidance you need.
