Birmingham Healthcare Fraud Attorneys
Defending Your Reputation and Career
Healthcare fraud is considered a white collar crime. If you’ve been charged with this serious offense, your practice, livelihood, and professional reputation are at stake.
Further, those found guilty can face up to 10 years in prison, or more if sums over $2,500 were involved, or if a patient was injured. Even without prison time, the fines and fees can be crippling to medical professionals and their practices.
At Jaffe, Hanle, Whinosant & Knight, P.C., we defend clients who have been charged with:
- Forging or selling prescription medications
- Modifying medical records
- Improper reporting of diagnoses
- Billing for unperformed services
- Fraudulent Medicare or Medicaid claims
- And more
As compassionate and aggressive attorneys, we understand that medical professionals make mistakes and we fight to protect your future.
Additionally, we are familiar with the healthcare world and will not have to learn the specifics of the billing and coding you deal with every day.

How We Help
The moment you are approached by an investigator, get in touch with an attorney. Remember your 5th amendment rights and let a lawyer speak for you. Our firm will talk to investigators and provide you with our legal insight and advice.
Still, we allow you to make all the important decisions regarding your case, like whether or not to accept a plea, go to trial, and take the stand. While we help you guide your own defense, we will also develop legal strategies and conduct private investigations by examining financial records, gathering testimonies, and exploring other evidence. Doing so will help us anticipate all outcomes and help you obtain the best one.
