Take Action to Defend Yourself Today

Healthcare fraud is a serious matter of federal charges. It is important for you to avoid taking matters into your own hands. Not only do federal authorities have far more resources to use in their investigations, but they are also protected by laws that prevent anyone from obstructing federal investigations into healthcare fraud.

Because of the many parties involved in the healthcare process, it is very possible for an innocent party to be caught in the middle of and even accused of participating in an illegal scheme. If you are such an individual, Law Office of Michael L. Guisti is prepared to defend your case against wrongful accusations such as these. The ramifications of conviction could have permanent implications on your record and reputation—for professional entities, it could even mean the loss of license or ability to practice. It is important for you to act quickly in seeking the truth by consulting with a capable OC fraud defense attorney.
