Physician Licensure, Credentialing And Disciplinary Matters
Neal Moskow, the founder of Moskow Law Group LLC, has developed a specialized practice area focusing on the needs of physicians and other health care professionals. He represents individuals and practices in their dealings with the Connecticut Department of Public Health, hospital credentialing matters and hospital disciplinary proceedings aimed at restricting, suspending and/or terminating privileges.
Attorney Moskow’s representation has resulted in the successful recovery of a $2.5 million dollar verdict against one hospital for its failure to follow medical staff by laws in summarily terminating a chief resident. He has also successfully protected his clients’ privileges and medical licensure through negotiation and implementation of consent agreements.
Because Moskow Law Group aggressively represents doctors, residents, physician assistants, nurses, therapists and other healthcare professionals during the licensure, credentialing or disciplinary process, we are often able to negotiate amicable resolution of these matters prior to the start of any formal hearing. Our experience in this specialized area has taught us, however, that early intervention in the process by a lawyer improves the opportunity for amicable resolution of the entire matter and/or insures that proper procedures are followed in those matters that require formal proceedings.
We recognize that our medical professional clients are sometimes concerned about Moskow Law Group LLC‘s pursuit of medical malpractice matters. We make no apologies for this fact and believe that our clients are entitled to compensation for negligent medical treatment, just as other clients are entitled to recover for breach of contract, wrongful termination or other civil wrongs. We also believe that this experience benefits the health care professionals that we represent because we bring a knowledge of medicine and the medical community to bear on problems affecting doctors, residents, physician assistants, nurses, therapists and other healthcare professionals.
In fact, it is our capacity to handle medical malpractice, employment and other litigation matters that forms the strong foundation for our medical professional practice area. What’s more, once a doctor, resident, physician assistant, nurse, therapist or other healthcare professional needs a lawyer, s/he wants one that will fight hard and who is willing to take the matter as far as it needs to go: that’s what plaintiffs’ trial lawyers do.
Given our unique ability to handle these complex matters through negotiation, at the hospital level and in court, Moskow Law Group LLC is the logical choice to represent medical professionals whose licenses and/or practices are at risk.
