As the nation’s fourth most populous state, Florida is one of the largest markets for health care services of all kinds.

And now, as the “baby boomer” generation begins joining the state’s retiree community, the need for health care providers will increase even more dramatically.

At the same time, the health care industry itself is one of the most highly regulated and closely scrutinized industries of all. Issues concerning insurance, compliance, risk management, malpractice, Medicare, fraud and abuse – to name a few – demand highly competent, proactive legal counsel like never before.
