Jennifer began her career focusing on third party payor and government payor audit defense, OPMC and OPD licensure matters and general practice matters, including license agreements, during her time as an associate at Abrams Fensterman, et al.

Jennifer operates the healthcare department in conjunction with the other practice areas of law at the firm. When necessary our litigation, real estate, trust and estates or bankruptcy attorneys are available to assist in matters related to healthcare, and frequently do where issues involving practice break-ups, trademark infringement, breach of contract, etc., arise. Practitioners contact Jennifer at all stages of practice, from their first employment agreement review and negotiation, their first lease, first partnership agreement, first patient issue, first lawsuit, first HIPAA complaint, first hospital contract, collection issues, audit through partnership structuring, mergers and acquisitions, practice sale, hospital employment or closure and everything in between. We are here to assist in any and all issues that arise that cannot be easily addressed internally or require third party consultation. Not sure if you need help?
