Early Intervention by a Defense Attorney
Is Critically Important in Health Care Fraud Cases
At our law offices, we have learned that successful defense of financial crimes charges requires early intervention and investigation by your defense attorney.
Do not adopt a “wait and see” attitude. If any government agency investigator is asking you questions about your own practices or the billing practices of your colleagues, contact an attorney immediately.
The investigator may have a casual attitude or may assure you that you are only a potential witness in an investigation — not the subject. The best way to protect yourself, your personal freedom, your health care practice and your clean criminal record is to hire an experienced legal advocate as soon as possible.
