Our attorneys include trial attorneys with experience in complex cases including health care and insurance fraud, labor and unemployment fraud, racketeering and money-laundering, and environmental crimes. We provide our clients with counsel during all phases of an investigation and prosecution, from initial inquiries and grand jury subpoenas to trials and appeals.
Health Care and Insurance Fraud
The States of New Jersey and New York are served by multiple county, state and federal agencies whose goal is to investigate and prosecute fraud committed by health care professionals. As the cost of health care increases, the efforts of these agencies also increases resulting in more scrutiny, investigation, and prosecution of providers. To effectively defend the rights of health care professionals, our attorneys get involved early and not only bring a thorough understanding of the underlying administrative and statutory law, but an understanding of the evolution and development of the law, the agencies that enforce them, and the courts that litigate them.
With potential penalties that include prison, loss of license, and significant fines, health care fraud may be prosecuted more heavily than other financial crimes, and requires an aggressive and meticulous defense.
