Licensing, Surveys and Investigations
Our Austin health care law attorneys have over 50 years of combined experience representing business and health care industry clients. They have been interacting with health care regulatory agencies for many years and thoroughly understand the processes and decision makers of each organization. The attorneys use this experience to represent the firm's clients effectively before various state and federal regulatory agencies.

We routinely interact with the Texas Medical Board, Health Integrity, the Texas Board of Nursing, the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services, Medicaid Fraud Control Unit, Health Integrity, Trailblazer, Palmetto, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the Texas Attorney General, ZPIC, RAC, TMHP, HHSC, and the State and Federal OIG in pursuit of our clients' goals.
We fully understand the issues at stake when clients' licenses and businesses are in jeopardy. Their careers and businesses are threatened, and their futures are uncertain. Each attorney and staff member in our firm is dedicated to doing what is needed to protect our clients' interests during regulatory proceedings.
