Medical or Health Care Fraud

The criminal defense attorneys of Synenberg, Coletta & Moran, LLC advise and represent professionals charged with various forms of health care fraud. We have represented physicians, chiropractors, companies, and home health aides charged with overbilling Medicaid for treatment, billing for nonexistent services, or seeking reimbursement for multiple sales of the identical medical devices.

Contact our office in Cleveland to learn how lawyers familiar with the state and federal system and committed to your interests can protect you from conviction on felony charges of health care fraud. Our insight into investigations, charges and sentence practices can give you a good understanding of your risks. Our experience with developing and presenting intelligent defenses in complex white collar criminal cases can work to your advantage at every stage of the case.

We know how to evaluate the evidence against you in order to spot and exploit the weaknesses in a fraud case. Although the federal government is always a powerful adversary, one advantage we have over the prosecution has to do with our limited caseload. Our attorneys can take the time to develop details of your case that government investigators might never get around to covering. We also have a nurse on staff to assist in the review of the voluminous discovery that often accompanies these cases.
You can also count on us to keep you fully informed throughout the case as we work toward expanding your options for a favorable outcome. Our personalized approach to client service can help take the stress out of a difficult situation.
