Ohio and federal prosecutors and investigators take healthcare-fraud allegations extremely seriously. They devote tens of millions of dollars annually to healthcare-fraud detection, investigation, and prosecution. A conviction could mean spending years in prison, the loss of your medical license, and millions of dollars in fines and civil penalties.
At The Chandra Law Firm LLC in Cleveland, our white-collar criminal-defense attorneys craft creative defense strategies that have led to dismissals of healthcare-fraud charges for clients facing years in prison. Our firm has also successfully defended doctors facing the suspension or loss of their professional licenses from the State of Ohio Medical Board.
Lawyers Who Can Defend Against Complex Charges
As an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Economic Crimes Unit of the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Ohio, firm founder Subodh Chandra earned praise from then-FBI Director Robert Mueller for his prosecution of healthcare-fraud cases. Mr. Chandra worked closely with special agents for both the FBI and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (HHS-OIG), and is highly familiar with how healthcare-fraud and Medicare-fraud investigations and prosecutions work.
As a former federal prosecutor, Mr. Chandra and our lawyers can assist you in federal criminal and civil investigations charging you with allegations of:
- Upcoding, or billing for a more expensive procedure than what was performed
- Billing for services not rendered or billing for phantom patients
- Performing unnecessary procedures
Our firm provides relentless, unwavering commitment to providing clients the best defense possible. We will work with the right experts and uncover if whistleblowers — tempted by the prospect of handsome rewards — can be trusted. We are experienced litigators, and we will be ready to represent you in negotiations or before juries.
