Physician Legal Representation

At MedLaw, we aggressively pursue physicians' rights in both the workplace and the courtroom.

Physicians are under attack. That much is clear. Unfortunately, today's practice of medicine is in many ways dangerous to a physician's well-being - professionally, personally, and emotionally.

Threats continually approach from all corners.

Some, more traditional threats are rooted in the medical malpractice machinery that sees the hapless physician placed at the mercy of grieving or financially motivated families, conflicted attorneys, ill-advised judges, and layman jurors with no knowledge of medicine.

Other, more recent threats include workplaces increasingly controlled by government and Wall Street fat cats at the expense of physician and patient autonomy and safety. Needless to say, the exam room is getting crowded as patients and their physicians are shoved into the corner by a host of third parties seeking to control their interaction.

And don't even get us started on the state medical boards and specialty medical boards that act, behind closed doors, with impunity and free from any oversight whatsoever.

And then there's the National Practitioner Data Bank, with its admitted yet uncorrected errors.

And online physician ratings platforms that are neither monitored nor checked for accuracy.

And electronic records systems that slow physicians down and place patient safety and security at risk from all manner of intruders.

The list of threats to physicians is long. And serious. And potentially career-ending.

The outcomes for patients will be even worse, and very possibly life-ending.

Physicians are told that they have representation. More often than not, what they have is an attorney with conflicting loyalties to the very forces coming to bear on the targeted physician.

An attorney hired by a physician's malpractice insurer or hospital owes his first allegiance to the insurance company or hospital that hired and pays him. This leads to many unfair settlements that deprive physicians of their most basic rights to representation and cause unfair outcomes that can follow the physician for the rest of his or her career, if not life.

When a legal threat becomes a reality and your own life and livelihood are on the line, you need MedLaw. We are here to help, and our first and only duty is to you. Period.

Need representation in a legal matter?

Physician Employment Representation

The health care workplace is not what it used to be.

Today's hospitals are controlled by giant corporate interests with little to no knowledge of medicine and little concern for patient outcomes.

Conflicts of interest abound. Even the language of the workplace has changed. Rationed, cut-rate care is euphemistically labeled "cost savings" and "efficiency." Physician blame and shaming is characterized as "outcomes analysis" and "quality improvement." Abruptly firing (or forcing the resignation of) physicians is couched in terms of "patient safety" and "workplace compliance."

You get the point. The new language of health care sounds good. Unfortunately, it is not. It is not good for physicians, and even worse for the patients who depend upon them for care.

Nurses and others with less training and experience are routinely deputized and charged with reporting alleged physician bad behavior. (Talk about placing the fox in charge of the henhouse!)

Their goal is simple: To control the care that physicians provide. If a physician cannot be controlled, or costs too much, or in any way takes away from the hospital's corporate and profit-seeking mission, he or she must go. Non-physician oversight is a way to achieve that goal.

We represent physicians at all stages of the employment relationship, from contract negotiation all the way through peer review and, if necessary, unjust termination and medical board reporting. Moreover, we are uniquely equipped to transition the process from the hospital boardroom to the courtroom as we continue to fight for your rights.

We know how hard you have worked and how unfair the medical employment system can be. Too often, it is a stacked deck.

We are on your side. We may be the only ones who are.

Physician Education and Training

We know medicine. We also know the law.

Over two decades ago, Dr. Moorman, as a health care attorney representing physicians and hospitals, sensed a close connection between the two disciplines. She committed to learning both from the inside out. Little could she have imagined how intertwined her two disciplines would ultimately become.

In today's ever-changing health care landscape, with its big government and corporate interference, the practice of medicine is very much a legal endeavor.

If you do not protect and pursue your rights, no one else will.

That's where our physician education and training services come in. We specialize in educating physicians about the law that affects them. We do so primarily through group presentations and other educational offerings. Where possible, we are happy to come to your practice or facility for that purpose.

Our classes are fun, energetic, and engaging - and very educational.

Because in addition to being physicians and lawyers, we are also lifelong educators and students. We believe in education - particularly yours.

The more you know and understand your legal rights, the more able you are to pursue and defend them. And that makes us all happier, healthier, and more secure.
