About John

Learn John’s areas of practice.

Thank you for visiting my AVVO page!  By way of introduction, I am an attorney in my 21st year of legal practice and a third-generation medical doctor.  I've been involved in medical-legal issues from the outset of my professional career.

I'm an AV-"preeminent"-rated attorney (the highest rating available via Martindale-Hubble) and I am licensed to practice law in both Nebraska and New York.  I've been involved in multi-million-dollar medical-legal matters in both of these states.  I have extensive experience in advising and representing the interests of physicians, hospitals and other medical providers and bring to the table a wealth of medical-legal expertise, with an emphasis on health care regulatory compliance, all forms of medical litigation, physician licensing concerns, serious injury cases, and business matters.

My medical-legal practice emphasis includes:

• Healthcare Law Compliance:  Affordable Care Act, HIPAA, EMTALA, False Claims Act and Qui Tam actions, Stark and anti-kickback statutes, Medicare and Medicaid, OSHA, health authority inquiries, licensing requirements, medical disciplinary proceedings, and similar statutory and regulatory matters.

• Medical-Legal Training for Healthcare Providers: On-site health law compliance training to help physicians and other medical staff identify and appropriately react to a variety of day-to-day medical-legal challenges, both regulatory and liability-related.

• Medical Practice Issues:  Payment disputes with insurance companies, physician contracts, facility leases, employee relations, and medical forms review.

In addition to the medical-legal matters above, I have had a great deal of experience in a variety of general practice areas, including:

• Wills, living wills, and powers of attorney

• Intellectual property matters

• Personal injury litigation (defense and plaintiff)

• Contracts, business litigation, and lease negotiation

• Employment matters

Thanks again for visiting my page!  If you are in need of an attorney, please don't hesitate to call.

Medical Malpractice Analysis
I have had the pleasure of working with John on a project my firm hired him to work on. We have also had discussions over the last ten years on various regulatory issues related to the healthcare industry. John has the ability to take on a project that doesn't have a clear path/steps, and figure out a solution working independently but with high competence using his JD and medical background. As an example, I needed research on trends for which data could only be gathered by hand and franklyu wasn't readily available. John knew where to go, how to get it and how to summarize/analyze for purpose of a bigger project we were working on. It took very little explaining for him to understand the substance of the engagement and big picture goals. In summary, if you need something customized that only an attorney with experience and creativity can handle, John is the attorney you should work with.

Clear, confident advice
John is an outstanding attorney. His effort is thorough, shows genuine concern and interest to reach a good outcome. Before contacting John, I had a medical insurance dispute that seemed like it would never be resolved. John had the experience and expertise to handle my case. He listened to my issue, explained options available to me and confidently ensured positive results. He was organized and kept me up to date on the progress of my case. My dispute was settled to a final resolution quickly. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to handle my problem. I highly recommend John. He is professional and will exceed your expectations.
