Jim regularly provides advice and counsel in matters relating to Stark law, the Anti-Kickback Statute, HIPAA, contract arrangements, survey and certification, licensing, reimbursement and others.

Jim believes that a key element of serving clients in his area of practice is being accessible, because operational and regulatory issues often arise outside of normal business hours and successful resolution may be dependent on an immediate response. He also believes that he can best serve clients by gaining a full understanding of their business objectives and always keeping those objectives at the forefront when providing advice as to a course of action. Jim’s advice to clients is informed both by his in-depth experience in representing health care providers and a strong understanding of operational and financial management that is derived from his past experience as a business executive.

Experience

In addition to providing daily advice and counsel to health care providers, Jim handles litigation in the state and federal courts in Alabama and Mississippi. Jim has extensive experience in defending cases involving allegations of health care fraud and malpractice. He has also prosecuted numerous appeals of federal and state agency determinations. Along with handling cases at the trial court level, Jim regularly argues cases in the federal and state appellate courts.
