Medical Licensing & Agency Review
Not all legal issues involve a lawsuit. In fact, many times the most serious legal ramifications involving professionals, especially in the medical and dental arena, are attacks on their licensure to practice. Through their representation of health care professionals, the lawyers at LKG are intricately involved and adept at handling licensing board and other agency related complaints.

Further, LKG has been involved in JCAHO reviews, medical society inquiries, HIPAA complaints, Health and Human Service actions, WDA complaints and Medicare/Medicaid investigation and peer/institutional review proceedings.
