A Solid Ally Representing Doctors And Health Care Professionals
Representing Texas physicians and health care entities is one of the core parts of our law practice. , is devoted to the meritorious representation and defense of health care professionals in court and in administrative proceedings, including Texas Medical Board matters.
We are proud to support and defend Texas health care professionals when their reputations and livelihoods are threatened in court and in administrative proceedings.
We continually represent physicians, physician groups, nurses, hospitals and health care businesses in the defense of health care liability claims in Texas courts. With decades of experience in this highly specialized field, we are experts at capably assessing alleged malpractice or other claimed negligence, and confidently guiding our clients through the entire process of hearings, depositions, mediation and, if necessary, trial.
Commitment to our clients takes priority in everything we do. Our skills have benefited our clients in administrative procedures, including those physicians facing disciplinary matters before the Texas Medical Board. This administrative work goes back decades and includes representation at every stage of that administrative process, including responses to the initial complaint letter, acquisition and presentation of supporting material during the investigative phase, attending informal settlement conference (ISC) hearings, and then participating in proceedings and mediations before the State Office of Administrative Hearings.
Our lawyers represent Texas physicians in conflicts over their credentials with hospitals and other health care entities. For physicians facing this inherently difficult process involving corrective action plans, adverse actions, suspensions or a failure to be recredentialed, , can lend a helping hand.
In recent years, we have assisted Texas physicians and their practice groups with HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) risk assessments. Our emergency response team can respond and investigate any concern about an unauthorized disclosure of protected health information to determine whether a breach has occurred and whether protected health information (PHI) has been compromised. We also assist with the ramifications of the risk assessment related to necessary notifications or reporting.
