For a quarter of a century, Best Lawyers has been regarded -- by both the profession and the public -- as the definitive guide to legal excellence in the United States.

Selection to Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive and rigorous peer-review survey comprised of nearly 4 million confidential evaluations by the top attorneys in the country. Because no fee or purchase is required, being listed in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Best Lawyers has been described by “The American Lawyer” as “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”

“I am very proud and honored that Best Lawyers has recognized my professional accomplishments, hard work and dedication to my clients and the practice of law,” said Mr. Katz.

Mr. Katz is a prominent trial and class action attorney and advocate for New Jersey physicians, dentists and other health care providers. He is a senior partner at Mazie Slater Katz & Freeman, LLC, a leading New Jersey class action and trial law firm. Mr. Katz represents healthcare providers and their patients in all types of managed care disputes including usual, customary and reasonable (“UCR”) disagreements, prompt payment disputes, unlawful bundling and downcoding of claims, improper coverage denials, class actions and managed care audits. In just the last few years, Mr. Katz has recovered several millions of dollars for his physician clients on UCR and prompt pay issues alone.

A leading New Jersey class action lawyer, Mr. Katz has been appointed lead class counsel in many managed class actions and achieved, among other triumphs, a landmark $55 million class action settlement on behalf of tens of thousands of New Jersey physicians against Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield, the largest health insurer in the State, relating to the carrier’s failure to process claims timely and appropriately.
