  • Jeffery B. McDonald

    I have had the pleasure of working with Jon since he joined our law firm in 2003. Jon is one of the finest attorneys that I know. His extensive knowledge of administrative law has allowed him to represent a diverse group of healthcare professionals before their respective licensing authorities. Above all else, Jon forms a professional relationship with each of his clients, and truly cares about the outcome. Jon is frequently called upon to be an expert speaker across the U.S. on various subjects related to healthcare issues such as medical record keeping, risk management, and patient boundaries. I would recommend Jon for virtually any issue related to licensure or investigation of a health care professional.
