Assertive Representation Against Allegations Of Misconduct
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 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 issues often in this heavily regulated industry.
