Medicare & Medicaid Fraud Attorney in Kissimmee
We All Have Rights - Todos Tenemos Derechos
Millions of Americans seek affordable healthcare. As a result, both healthcare
providers and recipients have come under harsh scrutiny by the federal
government. The result has included a significant increase in individuals,
healthcare providers, and medical institutions being charged with criminal
acts involving healthcare fraud, but not all allegations have been based
on legal searches or investigations.
If you have been accused of Medicare or Medicaid fraud, do not speak with
anyone until you have secured legal assistance from a
Kissimmee criminal defense attorney at Melendez Law Offices, P.A. It may be tempting to speak with law enforcement,
especially if you do not think that you have done anything wrong. It will
be crucial to your case to remain silent and seek legal counsel immediately.
Anything you say could accidentally incriminate you for an act that you
may not have necessarily committed.
