Healthcare Fraud Lawyer
When the government investigates you for Medicare or Medicaid fraud, it has tremendous resources on its side. The government also has the ability to destroy your career by charging you with a crime, excluding you from government healthcare programs, and suspending or revoking your professional license.
You need an experienced defense lawyer who understands complex healthcare laws and regulations. You also need an aggressive trial lawyer who will fight to protect your rights.
John Howley, Esq. has more than 28 years of experience representing major pharmaceutical companies, individual physicians, pharmacists, nurses, durable medical equipment companies, and other healthcare providers. He has successfully defended clients in state and federal courts. He has also represented clients before the New York Attorney General's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit (MFCU), the Office of Medicaid Inspector General (OMIG), and the HRA Bureau of Fraud Investigation.
Preparing Your Defense. A number of defenses may exist in your case. Sometimes the government's evidence is not sufficient, or the person accusing you is confused about the facts or lacks credibility. In other cases, the best strategy is to negotiate a settlement or plea bargain to limit the damages, charges, and penalties. Mr. Howley will conduct a thorough investigation and help you develop the best strategy for your specific case.
A Record of Excellence. Mr. Howley has received numerous awards for his work as a defense lawyer including the Gideon Champion of Justice Award from the New York State Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the Thurgood Marshall Award from the New York City Bar Association, and the Medal for Excellence in Advocacy from the American College of Trial Lawyers.
