Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) February 5, 2011
Due to the ever increasing cost of medical malpractice insurance, many doctors have made the decision to drop their insurance coverage. When a physician is sued, an attorney must be hired to defend the medical practice. Since hiring an attorney at the last minute can be expensive, physicians have increasingly considered the "flat-fee" a good option. As reimbursements from Medicare and other health insurers have been reduced, doctors must engage in strategic planning for their practices.
Lubell & Rosen has addressed this need by adding five additional attorneys. Steven L. Lubell, Esq. and Mark L. Rosen, Esq., both Board Certified by the Florida Bar, have expanded their defense team with the addition of three new associates in past eight months.
Another new attorney, Bernard M. Cassidy, Esq., focuses in health law, health law regulatory and white-collar criminal defense. Mr. Cassidy is a former Assistant Prosecutor in New Jersey and a former Assistant Attorney General and Assistant Statewide Prosecutor in the State of Florida. Mr. Cassidy’s experience in prosecuting violations in the health law field has proven invaluable in his representation of doctors, pharmacists, pharmacies, clinics and associations of particular healthcare providers.
Marshall A. Adams, Esq. and William C. Phillippi, Esq have been added to support the firms' Asset Protection and Commercial Litigation practice for its physicians. Both attorneys, formerly with Broad & Cassel, bring a wealth of legal experience which is available to all of the firm's clients.
