About The Healthcare Fraud Defense Blog
The healthcare fraud defense blog is a project by Ronald W. Chapman II, LL.M. an attorney at the multi-state health care law firm Chapman Law Group. Ron defends physicians, pharmacists and healthcare entities during government investigations, audits, and indictments. Very few attorneys have achieved trial acquittals on behalf of health care clients charged with health care fraud and drug trafficking and Ron is one of them. Through his years in the courtroom and many trials, Ron has seen less experienced defense counsel fall victim to DOJ tricks and litigation tactics causing an unequal playing field and unnecessary convictions. The Healthcare Defender is a project that seeks to level the playing field and provide resources, knowledge, and experience to Defendants, their Counsel, and providers interested in avoiding legal and regulatory pitfalls.
