Getting Legal Help for Your Medical Practice

Finding a good attorney is just like finding a good physician. Here is a listing of a few solid attorneys I work with and recommend to my consulting clients for those needing legal help with their medical practice.

I have worked directly or indirectly with the following attorneys, who are highly recommended. Some of them may not be able to help you in your particular state, but most will be able to offer you the right guidance.

Got questions about your practice? Interested in starting a virtual practice or have career questions? Book a consult session with me! Check out the testimonials page about me.

1. Cohen Healthcare Law Group

Michael Cohen has some great content online and publishes occasional YouTube videos, which may answer many of your general questions.

If you are looking for a healthcare law expert, their firm is highly recommended.

My coaching clients tell me that the amount of information they give you is incredible. It’s a great idea to reach out to them, see what advice they can offer you, and get some idea about pricing.

If you’re looking for an attorney for your virtual medical practice, this is where I would start.

2. Leeds Law

Luanne Leeds gives talks to various DPC enthusiasts. You can find some of her YT content online.

Leeds Law is based out of KS, but they help physicians in various states. However, it’s always best to do that free initial consult to ensure you feel comfortable with an attorney’s familiarity with your state and situation.

I often recommend Jay to my physician clients when they are building a coaching practice. For such hybrid practices, separating the medical and coaching arms is important to avoid running afoul with the state medical boards.

If you need legal help for your practice, Jay and his team are a good resource, especially when navigating the nuances of appropriate marketing.

4. Medical Justice

Dr. Segal and his team are great at helping you accumulate a solid online profile with online reviews. But they also help physicians facing a lawsuit or another online reputation crisis.

I’ve written about Medical Justice before and use them for my various businesses when I need legal help. Their prices are great, and they have great packages for physicians running their own virtual practice.

5. Nicol Health Law

Also popular among the DPC docs, Kathrine Nicol is based in Colorado and specializes in healthcare law.

If you’re looking for an attorney to help you start your virtual clinic, I’d highly recommend her. She has experience with Texas, California, Colorado, and other states.

6. Functional Lawyer

Someone who knows how to brand themselves understands the intricacies of standing out in a virtual telemedicine space.

Scott Rattigan is a Florida telemedicine attorney (and much more) for medical practices who runs Functional Lawyer. He offers hourly consulting for around $300, which is quite a steal.

How to Choose a Good Lawyer

First, figure out why you need an attorney. If you need any legal documents, you can download templates and edit them when you first get started. As soon as you have some traction, having an attorney write them up for you is best. Most healthcare lawyers can whip these up for you quickly.

As your medical practice grows, the complexity necessitates a better legal structure that should encompass not just documents but your patient workflow.

If you have basic medical-legal questions, most attorneys will sell you an hour of their time to ask your questions. But be prepared for questions because it’s a complex arena.

Many health law groups offer initial consults at deeply discounted rates or for free. If you aren’t impressed with them at this stage, you’re unlikely to have a good experience.
