Responsive Representation & Medicare Fraud Defense
State and federal law enforcement agencies – including the HHS’ Office of Inspector General (OIG), U.S. Attorney’s Office, FBI, Department of Justice, Texas OIG, Texas Attorney General, and more – have become increasingly aggressive in fighting fraud in federal health care programs, and especially in Medicare. The consequences of becoming ensnared in their investigations have major implications, and may forever alter your future.
If you are facing any fraud allegation, investigation, or potentially harmful Medicare matter, our firm is immediately prepared to represent you. Our goals in these cases include:
- Keeping cases civil, rather than criminal.
- Maintaining confidentiality, and protecting reputation.
