How To Find the Best NYC Medicaid Fraud Lawyer
When you are a target of a Medicaid fraud investigation, you may be at loss as to what to do and where to seek help. The worst think you can do is try to fix the situation yourself. If you are more fortunate as to put some thought into the matter and realize you need professional help, you will probably do a quick Internet search to look for the best Medicaid fraud lawyer in New York. This is when it gets tricky. You will see that there are many choices. How do you know which lawyer is the best for you? Do you even need to speak with a specialist or maybe any lawyer will do?
When it comes to Medicaid fraud, what you don’t know can hurt you. It is important to handle any interactions with Medicaid investigators just as you would a criminal complaint or an arrest. Many people investigated for Medicaid fraud don’t realize how stiff the possible penalties can be. Medicaid fraud consequences for healthcare providers can range from huge fines or loss of licensure, to the prohibition of accepting Medicaid payments or prison time. Recipients accused of Medicaid fraud can face criminal prosecution and repayment of hefty sums of money to the government. It’s so easy to say the wrong thing, especially when you’re under pressure and probably did not do anything wrong. It is important to remember that investigators are trained to get the information that they need, whether they are supposed to follow interrogatory rules or not. They are allowed a tremendous amount of latitude to elicit the responses that they are seeking.
This is why when you deal with Medicaid fraud cases, you want an attorney who handles lots of such cases. After all, you don’t ask your doctor to fix your car and if you’re sick, you don’t go to your car mechanic.
This is why you need to consult with the NYC Medicaid fraud attorneys of Joseph Potashnik & Associates.

At Joseph Potashnik & Associates you will find such lawyers. Don’t settle for anything else. You don’t want to give your case to a general practice lawyer who handles Medicaid cases from time to time (if at all). You want the best possible representation by a lawyer who has handled so many Medicaid fraud cases that he or she could be said to be specializing at them.

- Do not allow anyone to enter or search your home or place of business without a search warrant.

- Do not provide any documentation or files.
- Request a business card and let the investigator know that your attorney will be in contact with them.
