Anyone doing business in health care should have a relationship with a Health Lawyer. People often think of attorneys only when they get in trouble, but by then, it may be too late. We are advisors who help our health care clients with practical legal advice when they have questions or want to start, expand, or sell their businesses, so they can avoid both costly problems later and sleepless nights.
