Investigations of health care fraud often involve auditing financial and billing records of doctors, dentists, HMOs, psychologists, and other health care professionals. Unfortunately, people who are under investigation for health care fraud often over-react and may destroy patient, financial, billing, and office records. Doing so, however, can result in an obstruction of justice charge.
At the Law Offices of Horwitz & Citro, P.A., our Orlando criminal defense attorneys work closely with clients under investigation or indictment for health care fraud to prevent and avoid acts or conduct that would result in obstruction of justice charges. When we are contacted and involved in an investigation early on, we can often prevent our clients from being charged with obstruction of justice. In cases where records have already been destroyed, our lawyers may be able to deal with that on a case-by-case basis to minimize the damage to our client.
Avoid lengthy jail time, expensive fines, and a permanent criminal record - contact Orlando health care obstruction of justice attorneys today to schedule a confidential consultation.
Even if you are innocent of committing health care fraud, destroying evidence or lying under oath constitutes obstruction of justice. In this regard, it is worth noting that Martha Stewart was sent to jail after being convicted of conspiracy and obstruction of justice - not on insider trading. Likewise, baseball star Barry Bonds was indicted on perjury and obstruction of justice charges for lying about his alleged use of steroids.
If you are under investigation for health care fraud, your innocence will not necessarily keep you out of jail or from being indicted if you lie to investigators or destroy important documents. Our Orlando criminal defense attorneys can counsel and represent you to ensure you don't incriminate or perjure yourself and end up facing obstruction of justice charges.
Our experience in defending clients charged with health care fraud means we understand how state and federal investigators think. If brought in early enough, our lawyers can often help the client avoid being charged and from committing acts that might be construed as obstruction of justice.
