A Lawyer Who Has Been in Your Shoes

Start delivering high-quality patient care on a financially sound basis, while knowing you’re always in compliance with all applicable laws

A Unique Asset

Working as a healthcare executive, assisting in the operation of a healthcare provider, and his decades of experience in the areas of law necessary to advise healthcare providers, Bill has positioned himself as one of a kind asset for healthcare executives.

Over the last 37 years Bill has also practiced law in the areas of tax law, real estate law, corporate law, finance law, securities law, antitrust law, and other laws necessary to provide counsel to healthcare providers.  Therefore, unlike many large law firms where a health lawyer’s knowledge may be solely limited to healthcare regulations, Bill is able to listen to a healthcare provider’s problem with an understanding of the various areas of law that would direct a solution.  He is in a better position to provide comprehensive advice and counsel to healthcare clients at a lower cost.
