Defending and Protecting Medical Professionals
By the time government agents contact you, they have already gathered evidence and started to build a case against you. They probably know more about your Medicare and Medicaid claims history than you do. They may have an inside witness -- a disgruntled former employee, co-worker or patient -- who has given them documents and other information about you.
This is a very dangerous situation. If you make an innocent mistake when answering their questions, or if you forget what happened with a particular patient two or three years ago, the government agents could accuse you of making false statements and obstructing their investigation.
Do not handle this on your own. Get an experienced Medicaid fraud attorney on your side. Call John Howley, Esq. at (212) 601-2728 or click here to arrange a free and confidential consultation.

Medical professionals and other healthcare providers may face civil and criminal liability for violating the complex rules and regulations governing Medicare and Medicaid claims. Some of the more common charges include:
Protecting Your Rights and Your Professional License
An experienced Medicaid fraud attorney can help you protect your rights, your license, and your livelihood. The government may have made mistakes when analyzing your billing records, or they may be relying on a disgruntled former employee who lacks credibility and will fall apart on cross-examination. There may be legitimate explanations or defenses for your billing practices.
You need a seasoned defense lawyer who will investigate the charges against you, develop your defenses and evidence, negotiate with the government to avoid or reduce charges, and provide a vigorous defense at trial if necessary.
