Irvine Healthcare Fraud Defense Lawyer

At the Spodek Law Group, we understand the gravity of healthcare fraud accusations. Our team of experienced criminal defense attorneys has helped countless clients navigate these complex cases, and we’re here to help you too.

Understanding Healthcare Fraud Charges

First things first, let’s break down what healthcare fraud actually means. In simple terms, it’s when someone knowingly submits false or misleading information to a health insurance program, like Medicare or Medicaid, in order to receive benefits or payments they’re not entitled to.This can take many forms, such as:

  • Billing for services that were never provided
  • Upcoding, or billing for more expensive services than were actually performed
  • Falsifying patient diagnoses to justify unnecessary tests or procedures
  • Accepting kickbacks for patient referrals

The penalties for healthcare fraud can be severe, including hefty fines, restitution, and even prison time. That’s why it’s so important to take these accusations seriously and seek experienced legal counsel right away.

What to Do If You’re Accused of Healthcare Fraud

If you find yourself facing healthcare fraud charges, here are some key steps to take:

  1. Don’t panic. It’s natural to feel overwhelmed, but try to stay calm and focused.
  2. Don’t talk to investigators without a lawyer present. You have the right to remain silent, and anything you say can be used against you. Politely decline to answer questions until you’ve consulted with an attorney.
  3. Document everything. Keep detailed records of any interactions with investigators, as well as any relevant emails, billing records, or other documents that could support your case.
  4. Contact an experienced healthcare fraud defense lawyer immediately. The sooner you have a skilled attorney on your side, the better your chances of a favorable outcome.

At the Spodek Law Group, we have a proven track record of success in healthcare fraud cases. We know how to navigate the complex legal landscape and build a strong defense strategy tailored to your unique situation.

Potential Defenses Against Healthcare Fraud Charges

Every healthcare fraud case is different, but there are several common defenses that may apply:

  • Lack of intent. To be convicted of healthcare fraud, prosecutors must prove that you knowingly and willfully submitted false claims. If you made honest mistakes or were unaware of any wrongdoing, this could be a strong defense.
  • Insufficient evidence. The burden of proof is on the prosecution to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. If there are holes in their case or a lack of concrete evidence, this could work in your favor.
  • Entrapment. In rare cases, defendants may argue that they were induced to commit fraud by law enforcement agents or informants. This is a complex defense that requires skilled legal representation.
  • Unlawful search and seizure. If evidence against you was obtained illegally, such as through an unauthorized search of your office or records, it may be inadmissible in court.

Of course, the best defense is a good offense. That’s why it’s so important to be proactive in your own defense and work closely with your attorney to build a compelling case.

Just had my Divorce case settled 2 months ago after having a horrible experience with another firm. I couldn’t be happier with Claire Banks and Elizabeth Garvey with their outstanding professionalism in doing so with Spodek Law Group. Any time I needed questions answered they were always prompt in doing so with all my uncertainties after 30 yrs of marriage.I feel from the bottom of my heart you will NOT be disappointed with either one. Thanks a million.

Alex Zhik contacted me almost immediately when I reached out to Spodek for a consultation and was able to effectively communicate the path forward/consequences of my legal issue. I immediately agreed to hire Alex for his services and did not regret my choice. He was able to cover my case in court (with 1 day notice) and not only was he able to push my case down, he carefully negotiated a dismissal of the charge altogether. I highly recommend Spodek, and more specifically, Alex Zhik for all of your legal issues. Thanks guys!

I don’t know where to start, I can write a novel about this firm, but one thing I will say is that having my best interest was their main priority since the beginning of my case which was back in Winter 2019. Miss Claire Banks, one of the best Attorneys in the firm represented me very well and was very professional, respectful, and truthful. Not once did she leave me in the dark, in fact she presented all options and routes that could possibly be considered for my case and she reinsured me that no matter what I decided to do, her and the team will have my back and that’s exactly what happened. Not only will I be liberated from this case, also, I will enjoy my freedom and continue to be a mother to my first born son and will have no restrictions with accomplishing my goals in life. Now that’s what I call victory!! I thank the Lord, My mother, Claire, and the Spodek team for standing by me and fighting with me. Words can’t describe how grateful I am to have the opportunity to work with this team. I’m very satisfied, very pleased with their performance, their hard work, and their diligence. Thank you team!

I can't recommend Alex Zhik and Spodek Law Firm highly enough for their exceptional legal representation and personal mentorship. From the moment I engaged their services in October 2022, Alex took the time to understand my case thoroughly and provided guidance every step of the way. Alex's dedication to my case went above and beyond my expectations. His expertise, attention to detail, and commitment to achieving the best possible outcome were evident throughout the entire process. He took the time to mentor me, ensuring I understood the legal complexities involved to make informed decisions. Alex is the kind of guy you would want to have a beer with and has made a meaningful impact on me. I also want to acknowledge Todd Spodek, the leader of the firm, who played a crucial role in my case. His leadership and support bolstered the efforts of Alex, and his involvement highlighted the firm's commitment to excellence. Thanks to Alex Zhik and Todd Spodek, I achieved the outcome I desired, and I am incredibly grateful for their professionalism, expertise, and genuine care.
