Protecting Your Reputation with Our Experience
Chapman Law Group was founded 35 years ago by Ronald W. Chapman, with the goal of creating a national boutique litigation law firm advanced in specific areas of law and capable of providing exceptional personal service to licensed healthcare professionals. Today, Chapman Law Group is an AV-rated litigation firm, representing clients across the U.S., with principal offices in Michigan, Florida, and California. We are passionate about helping clients with matters involving health law, healthcare compliance consulting, professional licensing and regulatory compliance, DEA compliance, criminal defense, medical malpractice defense, correctional law, civil rights defense, and business matters.
Our Strength is Your Strength
Whether you are a general practice doctor, specialty care physician, or a pharmacist, we appreciate the time and effort it takes to become a licensed health professional, and we understand the potential issues you may face in your chosen field. We are dedicated to protecting and defending what is important to you — your license, your reputation, and your livelihood. Whether you are just starting your career, expanding your healthcare practice or pharmacy, or planning for retirement, Chapman Law Group is here for you.
We Focus on Healthcare
Chapman Law Group focuses on the specific legal areas needed to provide sound legal representation to healthcare professionals nationwide. We have assembled a team of attorneys who possess strong knowledge, experience and understanding of the issues healthcare providers face — from healthcare regulatory/HIPAA compliance to professional malpractice defense, and from contract disputes/breach of contract to False Claims Act defense. We also have lawyers who are licensed nurses and physicians and who truly know the intricacies of your profession and the law.
Mega Firm Experience Without the Price Tag
We assign one of our trained litigators to your file and work to ensure results with a reasonable price tag. We do not overwork and over-bill your case. Large firms often assign a senior partner and others who do little actual work, yet they bill the “big bucks.” At Chapman Law Group, we don’t overcharge for unnecessary services such as needless motions or excessive investigations, and we won’t overbill you for the services we provide. When the situation presents itself, we will modify our fee arrangements to fit your needs and ensure fair and reasonable compensation for the results achieved. Working in a collegial environment, we share our resources and work experience to reduce the financial burden on our clients.
Advanced Degrees Put Us in a Higher Class
Nearly 1 in every 3 of our healthcare lawyers holds a Master of Law (LL.M.) in Health Law from Loyola University Chicago School of Law, the top-ranked school in the U.S. for health law studies. We use this advanced knowledge to better understand and solve the problems our medical professional clients face in healthcare compliance, regulatory, and criminal matters.
We pride ourselves on having strong ethics and values, a hard-working attitude, a dedication to client needs, extensive experience in our chosen areas of law, and, most importantly, the long-term relationships we have built with many of our clients across the U.S. Our team of professionals is specifically selected for their experience in, their passion for, and their focus on healthcare law. We are honored to offer the legal services you may need throughout your career.
Our national DEA attorneys are dedicated to defending prescribers and dispensers against DEA investigations, registration applications and denials, audits and raids. Here’s what healthcare providers should know about the DEA process, from our perspective.
In representing hundreds of doctors, specialty physicians and pain management specialists on federal healthcare fraud and drug trafficking charges, we’ve been able to glean from the DOJ litigation playbook . Here are 10 secrets we’ve found — and how we tear them down at trial.
Our healthcare fraud attorneys were able to determine that the government failed to disclose a significant amount of files, which it is required to disclose.
After learning that ex-employees were being interviewed by federal agents, we quickly engaged in an internal investigation, made the necessary changes to show substantial compliance, and developed a viable compliance program.
When Dr. Roy Harris, an Ohio physician, was placed on the CMS preclusion list due to an unfortunate paperwork error, he was thrown in a tailspin. Not only did the error worsen in CMS’ hands, he was spending thousands of dollars on legal counsel that was getting him nowhere. We at Chapman Law Group were able to swoop in, successfully appeal his case, and get him re-enrolled. Here, Dr. Harris explains how Chapman Law Group saved the day — and his career.
We are proud that one in every three healthcare attorneys at Chapman Law Group holds a Masters of Law (LL.M.) in Health Law from Loyola University Chicago School of Law, the top school in the U.S. for health law studies. Here, our lawyers talk to Professor Kristin Finn about what led them to pursue an advanced degree, specifically from Loyola, and why this puts our firm overall in a higher class for representing healthcare providers nationwide.
