Our team of regulatory and reimbursement practitioners, seasoned civil litigators, and experienced criminal trial lawyers brings the optimal defense experience and trial skills to each matter. We resolve most matters discretely and on favorable terms, but always bring a trial-ready mindset backed by an outstanding trial record in the most difficult cases.
