About Richard

Learn Richard’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Health insurance

  2. Litigation
    QLG’s Insurance Claims & Litigation practice group has over 25 years of experience using state and federal insurance laws and regulations to the advantage of its clients.

    34 years

  3. Insurance
    We excel in representing clients in the “claims management” process, meaning no lawsuit, but handling a claim on behalf of a client with letters, evidence submissions, and citations to legal precedent and laws. Often, this process can lead to success without a lawsuit ever being filed.

    34 years

  4. Health care
    In the complex and fast changing world of health plans and health insurance, one things remains the same: the vast majority of health plans and health insurance policies are sponsored by employers or groups, which makes them governed by ERISA, the Employee Retirement Security Income Act of 1974. This federal law — unknown to many — is a powerful set of laws and regulations that our firm uses to obtain fair treatment and protection to medical providers throughout the United States.

    34 years

Richard J. Quadrino is the CEO and founder of Quadrino Law Group. For nearly three decades, he has been a leader and innovator in the legal field.  In fighting for his clients, Rick has forged new ground, shaped aspects of the field of insurance law, and obtained results for clients throughout the country.

In health insurance matters, Richard and his firm represent medical providers to stop unlawful claim audits and clawbacks by health plans, health insurers, or their administrators seeking to recoup monies they voluntarily paid on prior (closed) claims. We also challenge insurance industry schemes and tactics and obtain financial recoveries for medical providers on denied claims.

Our two decades of ERISA experience -- and how we use it in this arena - is what sets us apart from other firms.

Richard Quadrino Knows Health Care Law
Attorney Richard Quadrino is the most knowledgeable attorney I have ever worked with in his area of health care law. I can say this after having worked with many different lawyers in other disputes and cases I have been involved in on both sides of legal defense/offense

Rick Quadrino was there for me during every step of the legal process. At no time did he shy away from adversity. He was able to explain in clear, understandable terms each step of the process as we moved forward with our case. Rick was able to detail the pros and cons for each step so I was able to make an informative decision. I would recommend Rick Quadrino without reservation.

Expert Knowledge of Health Care Law
I own and operate a medical practice in Georgia. I had a post payment audit from a private insurer demanding $586,000 so I hired Richard Quadrino due to his vast knowledge of Fededral ERISA laws, health care law and he came highly recommended. He showed a great ability to work with other attorneys as well as several other clients on this same case. I am pleased to say that he was able to negotiate 100% of the money demanded from the insurance company down to $0 paid. It is quite obvious I would recommend Mr. Quadrino so do no hesitate to use him for any service.

Outstanding legal advice!
Mr. Quadrino has shown himself to be the most knowledgable, driven and focused attorneys that I have had professional dealings with. In 2009, I had the unfortunate chance of having a large sum of unpaid claims from an insurance carrier. After dealing with two other law firms, both of whom lacked the knowledge , confidence and determination to resolve this case, I sought out more competent legal advice and luckily found Mr. Quadrino. After my initial meeting with Mr. Quadrino, I knew that I was in the right place. Additionally, I brought along a family member who is also an attorney with over 30 years of trial experience( he was quite impressed as well with the depth and integrity Mr. Quadrino had in his field). The claims were paid and I get paid for current claims as well. I strongly urge you to hire Mr. Quadrino first, so that you can resolve your legal matter expeditiously and with ease.

Health care Attorney | May 12
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. I have witnessed firsthand Richard's mastery of ERISA and healthcare insurance law. Any healthcare provider and insured would be in excellent hands with Richard."
Litigation Attorney | Jul 22
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. Rick Quadrino is one of the most thoughtful, competent and talented litigators that I have encountered in my nearly 30 years of practicing law. He is admired by his peers and respected (sometimes reluctantly) by his opponents. He is thorough and tireless in his representation and has a well deserved national reputation for getting results in ERISA and other matters for his clients that no other attorney could have achieved. In the more than 25 years that I have known him professionally, I have work with him on several cases and I've consulted with him on numerous others. In each instance I found his advice to be insightful, comprehensive, accurate and extremely helpful. I don't easily praise the work of other attorneys but in this case I make an exception due to Rick's unique and highly respected talents. Anyone in need of counsel and considering retaining a talented law firm should begin and end their search with Rick Quadrino and the Quadrino Law Group."
