Austin Healthcare Professional Licensing Lawyers
Representing a Variety of Health Care Professionals
Our representation of licensed professionals includes a wide range of medical providers. In addition to acting on behalf of physicians and nurses in licensing matters, our Austin law firm provides advocacy and counsel to other individuals and businesses involved in the provision of health care services. The lawyers at Rivas Goldstein LLP are highly experienced in administrative law as it affects medical professionals; they have been practicing in this area for more than a decade and have the knowledge needed to obtain the best possible outcome for clients.
We act for licensed professionals who face disciplinary action or the loss of their licenses or certifications. Our clients include individuals and companies such as these:
- Ambulance companies
- Home health agencies
- Physician assistants
- Physical therapists
Our attorneys mount a vigorous defense against disciplinary actions by licensing agencies such as the Texas Medical Board, Texas Dental Board, Texas Board of Physical Therapy Examiners and the Texas Physician Assistant Board. We represent clients in matters such as Informal Settlement Conferences, Show Compliance Proceedings, compliance issues, investigations, mediations and re-licensing petitions. We advocate for clients in matters that include fraud, Stark compliance, HIPAA compliance, standard of care matters, reimbursement and billing disputes, audits and many other matters that come up often in this heavily regulated industry.
We also advise clients about compliance and operational issues to help them avoid disciplinary action. We particularly provide this service to ambulance companies, home health care companies and other health care industry businesses. We frequently act as general counsel to businesses and provide advice and recommendations on an ongoing basis.
