Highly Experienced Federal Lawyer Representing Healthcare Providers and Others in High-Stakes Investigations

For individuals and organizations targeted in federal investigations, the consequences are very real. When the DEA, FBI, IRS, or OIG uncovers the evidence necessary to support criminal charges, federal prosecutors will aggressively pursue convictions with maximum sentences – sentences that can include insurmountable fines, loss of government program eligibility, and decades behind bars. In today’s world where healthcare fraud and opioid diversion are top law enforcement priorities, it is not unusual to hear of large-scale “takedowns” resulting in criminal prosecution of physicians, pharmacists, healthcare executives, and others who are suddenly at risk for life-changing penalties.

Recently, Kentucky has become a key battleground in the federal government’s fight against healthcare and opioid prescription fraud. Prosecutors in Kentucky’s Eastern and Western Districts are aggressively pursuing all individuals suspected of contributing to the nation’s opioid epidemic and the multi-billion-dollar problem of Medicare waste and abuse. They are actively working with investigators from the DEA, FBI, IRS, and OIG to gather the evidence they need to prosecute as many people as possible.

Are You Facing a Healthcare Fraud, Opioid Fraud, or White-Collar Investigation in Kentucky?

If you are being targeted in a federal investigation, seeking experienced legal representation needs to be your top priority. Your investigation does not have to lead to charges, but if you do not hire an attorney, there is a strong possibility that it will. By hiring an attorney who is intimately familiar with the law and knows how to communicate effectively with federal prosecutors, you can mitigate your risk of prosecution and you can feel confident knowing that experience is on your side.
