Defense Investigations

The minute a healthcare provider becomes aware of a fraud or licensure investigation is when the assistance of an experienced healthcare attorney is needed.

Anthony C. Vitale has been representing clients under investigation for 25 years. As a former prosecutor in Miami, he knows what government investigators are looking for and how to best prepare clients when investigators come knocking at the door. What you say and do during an investigation may have a big impact on your future.

The firm represents clients during all stages of investigation conducted by the FBI, Office of the Inspector General, Drug Enforcement Administration, United States Attorney’s Office, Attorney General’s Office, State Attorney’s Office, Medicaid Fraud Control Unit, Board of Medicine, as well as other licensing boards and enforcement agencies.

The firm conducts confidential defense investigations. The goal of a defense investigation is to reduce or eliminate criminal, civil, licensure and administrative liability. Our focus is to keep any government investigations out of court and out of the public eye.

Becoming the target of an investigation is serious business. It can cost a healthcare provider time, money and ultimately your license, business and liberty.

Before you start answering questions from an investigator or respond to a subpoena it’s imperative that you contact experienced legal counsel.
