Florida Healthcare Law Attorney
For many in medicine and healthcare, their work is not simply a career but more of a calling - a personal desire to make a difference in the lives of others. Because of this, healthcare professionals enjoy unparalleled personal fulfillment and respect, but they are increasingly facing twists and turns along the way.
Today's healthcare industry is perpetually in a state of flux and under tremendous strain. This strain is particularly felt here in Florida, where providers often feel like they are drowning in a sea of never-ending challenges and changes: from medical malpractice reform initiatives and professional licensure challenges to shrinking reimbursements and medical record or HIPAA privacy and security concerns.
Many of these issues interrelate, and a problem or simple oversight in one area can cause a ripple effect, at times endangering an entire medical practice or organization. At the law firm of Michael R. Lowe, P.A., our job is to keep our eyes on the horizon, anticipating and addressing challenges, staying involved and forging a safe and compliant path forward for the clients we serve so they can focus on what they do best.
Our Approach to Healthcare Law
We believe in building loyal, long-term relationships with each of our clients to provide them with the guidance, vision, analysis, perspective and solutions to help meet their professional and business goals both now and into the future.
Using our experience and expertise, we navigate the obstacles our clients face, serving not simply as their attorneys, but also as their legal strategists, trusted advisors and protectors of their rights and interests. We aggressively defend clients against government investigations and lawsuits when necessary, and we help chart a course through the maze of state and federal health care laws, rules and regulations.
We often counsel our clients on whether they should pursue litigation or explore other options when faced with a particular problem. Litigation is stressful and expensive so we often advise our clients to litigate as a last resort. However, our attorney, Michael R. Lowe has significant experience in civil and administrative courts and tribunals.
Our lead attorney, Michael R. Lowe, is Board-Certified in Health Law by the Florida Bar and is a member of the American Health Lawyers Association, the Health Law Section of the American Bar Association and the Health Law Section of the Florida Bar.
