Medicaid Fraud Criminal Defense
I received a letter from the government stating
that they want to interview me for Medicaid fraud. 
I didn’t do anything wrong . . .  should I hire a lawyer?

If you have received such a letter, the government is actively investigating your practice and working to build a case against you.  Even if you did nothing wrong,

Why would you risk implicating yourself in a crime?
Why would you risk going to jail?
Why would you risk losing your license?

You’ve worked so hard and made so many sacrifices to get where you are today.  Don’t risk losing your precious things because you didn’t hire an attorney to guide you through this process and protect your rights.

The Interview
