LOS ANGELES, Dec. 29 /PRNewswire/ — The Criminal Defense Attorneys of Eisner & Gorin LLP, a premier Los Angeles Fraud Defense Firm, have successfully represented numerous clients accused of state and federal healthcare fraud offenses involving allegations of Medi-Cal and Medi-Care theft.

The firm’s recent courtroom successes are listed below. In each instance, the accused was facing multiple years in state or federal custody if convicted:

  • A licensed medical doctor was accused of forging patient files to increase Medi-Cal benefits, causing a $3 million fraud in Los Angeles County. The firm obtained a dismissal of all felony charges after demonstrating intentional government misconduct violated the client’s due process. The government is appealing the dismissal.
  • An unlicensed nurse was accused of engaging in the unlawful practice of medicine while using a California nursing license that did not belong to her. The alleged fraud spanned several years, exceeded $250,000, and was charged in federal court. The firm was able to secure a no-jail disposition for the client.
  • A business owner operating an Adult-Day Health Care in Ventura County, with over $5 million Medi-Cal billing, was accused of fraud. The case was dismissed by the magistrate during the preliminary hearing due to insufficient evidence.
  • An insurance agent was accused of collecting premiums from client businesses and then failing to purchase policies for them. Our lawyers obtained a probationary disposition with no jail time, after restitution was made. The DA recommended a jail sentence.
