Lawyers For Health Care Providers
Health law is complicated by its very nature, and that causes a variety of issues to arise for those in the health care industry: individual providers, physician practices/physician groups, managed care organizations, professional groups, and any other types of health care organizations.
Attorneys in this field can help with legal matters related to contract drafting, business organization issues and questions, audit and defense representation, and medical transactions. They also help with a wide range of compliance matters and defense representation.
It is vital to retain an attorney with extensive experience in the field of health care law when facing issues related to regulatory compliance, health care fraud allegations, Stark Law and Anti-Kickback Statute matters, False Claims Act issues and any other types of regulatory issues. Getting trusted counsel as soon as issues arise - or even the potential for an issue is realized - is key to minimizing damage to your organization's finances and your professional reputation.
Representation For Patients
If you are a patient or other type of health care client and have legal issues related to Medicare and Medicaid, medical bills, health insurance, access to care, public health law, medical record confidentiality (HIPAA matters), consent to medical treatment, or anything else, a health care law attorney can help.
Use FindLaw to hire a local attorney to provide legal advice and assist you with your legal issues that involve the provision of healthcare services and healthcare benefits.
Please note that this section of our directory does not list attorneys who pursue medical malpractice claims. A list of attorneys who work in that field can be found in our medical malpractice section.
Do You Need a Lawyer in Pennsylvania?
There are a variety of reasons you might need to find a lawyer in Pennsylvania, from facing criminal charges to filing a lawsuit or even just buying a house.
If you are facing criminal charges, it is extremely important to be represented by skilled legal counsel. Not only can retaining an experienced criminal defense attorney increase your chances of a favorable outcome if your case does go to trial (improving your odds of attaining an acquittal), but also if you opt to negotiate a plea deal or to plead guilty, a lawyer can ensure you are treated fairly within the boundaries of the law.
On the other hand, if you are looking to file a legal claim of any sort, it is equally advisable to find a Pennsylvania lawyer familiar with your type of legal matter. Attorneys have spent years (if not decades) of their lives in pursuit of the knowledge and skills necessary to best represent their clients in court proceedings. Legal jargon, obscure precedent, existing and newly passed statutes and other elements of the legal process demand that a professional lawyer is always capable of seeking the best possible outcome.
Can I Represent Myself in Pennsylvania?
While representing yourself in court can sound like a good idea on the surface, particularly given the relative cost of retaining legal counsel, it is almost universally considered to be a poor idea. No amount of quick research can act as a substitute for the skills and experience that lawyers attain through working several years in the court system.
How do I choose a lawyer?
Consider the following:
- Comfort Level
- - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
- - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
- - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
- - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?
