To understand who we are, it's better to explain who we are not. We are not your uncle's law firm. We are not a large firm with rigid hierarchy, overwhelming bureaucracy or immense overhead. We proudly stand by this structure and it makes us very happy - and by us, we mean you! Because, if you choose to work with us, what we are not allows us to be a law firm that can provide effective, creative and affordable legal work for you - our clients in the health care industry.
What we are is real, live, human beings who realize that you - our client and your customers - are real, live, human beings too. We understand that the circumstances surrounding your legal problems are delicate, and that often there's a human element that must be balanced with the willingness to roll up your sleeves and fight. We believe that, notwithstanding the potential complications that arise from the intersection of our worlds, we can make it work - better.
We have licensed full time attorneys in AZ, CO, CT, DC, GA, KY, MA, MD, MI, MO, MT, NC, NH, NJ, NY, OH, PA, SC, TN, TX, VA and VT with additional attorneys on staff admitted to practice in AL, DE, FL and IN. Have a case in a different state? No problem! We have a network of relationships in most other states.
We've brought together some great legal minds... experienced attorneys with the creativity and passion to bring innovative, modern-day solutions to problems often faced by the health care industry. We can crack your capers, put your novel questions into our think tank, increase your fiscal productivity and your bottom line.

It's what's in the middle of problems and solutions. It's what happens when an insurmountable obstacle is overcome by just doing something. It's changing the status quo. Not accepting "no" for an answer. It's action.
Action - It's also how we change the way a health care facility approaches the bureaucracy and headaches traditionally associated with collections and the Medicaid program. With action, your collections should increase and your facility should prosper. Bringing us full circle: burgeoning.
