Working with our inhouse investigators, we meticulously analyze the government's case against our clients, identifying unsubstantiated conclusions, the mishandling of evidence, and questionable testimony on the part of Qui Tam whistleblowers.

Relevant laws can be confusing and constantly changing, leaving physicians, pharmacists, chiropractors, nurses and health care organizations vulnerable to criminal investigations and serious charges related to:
- Medicaid fraud
- Medicare fraud
- Social Security fraud
- Insurance fraud
- Improper billing
- False medical claims
- Improper coding practices
- Claims adjudication fraud
- Accepting kickbacks
- Tax Fraud
