COVID-19 UPDATE- Our office is open as usual. However NO office visits are permitted until further notice. The phones are answered and telephone responses may be delayed as all of the attorneys are working remotely and e-mail notification is necessary. Much of our work was previously possible without the need for face-to-face communication, so there has been only a minor disruption and we appreciate your patience. Always feel free to reach out to us with any of your Health Law questions!

DEA Warns Public of Extortion Scam by DEA Special Agent Impersonators
Please be advised that this scam is becoming more sophisticated by targeting physicians and practices who prescribe controlled substances, asking for information that they could potentially use to write illegal prescriptions. They state that during a sting operation, a large number of a prescriber's prescriptions have been confiscated and that they need information from the physician including licensing and prescribing information and threaten arrest. Please do not provide any information over the phone and direct the caller to send a letter to the office on official letterhead and it will be handled appropriately.
