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.

How Do You Hire a Good California Attorney
Finding the best lawyer for your unique situation can be a challenge, but the best way to hire a good California attorney is to talk with them, ask them questions, and make sure they meet all your needs. This usually starts with their practice area. Determine which lawyers can handle your type of case and then find a California attorney with experience in that area. So it will be important to ask about each lawyer’s years of experience, legal training, and strategy to your unique legal case.
The attorney-client relationship may also be important. If it is your first time dealing with a legal issue, you may be looking for a lawyer who can clearly and patiently explain the legal process, identify your options, and answer all your questions. You may also want an attorney who is available at any time to provide legal advice. Think about questions to ask, like if there are updates to your case, how will that be communicated? Are there specific California law deadlines that you are required to meet?
The location of your attorney's law office may also be an important factor. In larger cities like Los Angeles, San Diego, or San Francisco, you may want to find a lawyer with a convenient location to you so that you don't have to drive an hour just for signing legal papers. However, some legal services can be primarily conducted through phone calls, emails, written correspondence, and video calls, so you could, for example, have a lawyer in Sacramento handle your legal issues in Riverside.
