Health Care Defense Attorneys

The health care industry occupies about one-sixth of our economy and touches every facet of our lives. Given the depth and breadth of health care, state and federal governments inject themselves into every decision possible. As a result, the field of health care is the most widely regulated industry/service in the U.S.

The body of law covering the field of health care is often cumbersome, contradictory, costly, and simply impossible to navigate from a healthcare professional’s point of view.

Today ACA, Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurers place a tremendous burden on the healthcare professional. They regulate what can and cannot be done, and when and where it is to be done. They bring forth mountains of paperwork. They set regulatory landmines, waiting to catch the unsuspecting professional.

All of this is watched by a litigious society that is ready to file a medical malpractice or health care fraud lawsuit.

As a law firm solely dedicated to the healthcare field, we at Chapman Law Group are here for physicians, nurses, pain management specialists, pharmacists, and all other licensed healthcare professionals.

Our simple mission is to provide health professionals with the best possible legal representation in all aspects of the law.
