As is the case with most types of fraud, Health Care Fraud is often complex and has thousands of documents that need to be reviewed. If the individual charged is a medical professional, fraud charges can have a devastating effect on your practice and could result in a loss of your professional license. While this is a frightening situation for the professional to be in, all is not lost; contact with a criminal defense law firm should be made immediately. Many times an arrest can be prevented if the health care professional calls a criminal defense law firm like Michael A. Swinton, P.A. before speaking to law enforcement regarding their “investigation.” Even if arrested, Michael A. Swinton, P.A. will immediately begin investigating the charges with the hope of showing the prosecutor that the alleged “fraud” was unintentional.
