  • Medical records violations;
  • Performing services not authorized by patient;
  • Gross or repeated malpractice;
  • False, deceptive, or misleading advertising;

Disciplinary action can have a widespread and long-lasting effect on a chiropractor’s career. Therefore, our lawyers for chiropractors fight hard to resolve any disciplinary action and help chiropractors maintain their ability to practice.

Chiropractic Malpractice

For over 25 years’, Chapman Law Group has been defending providers accused of malpractice. Many of our attorneys have over 10 years experience in medical malpractice defense. Our lawyers assist chiropractors who are accused of negligent manipulation, inducing stroke, and failure to diagnose.

We work with many of the leading malpractice insurers. We also represent self-insured providers. Our attorneys are sensitive to the cost of malpractice litigation and try to reduce costs whenever possible.

Business

Our transactional attorneys assist practice owners with business and employment issues. For chiropractors looking to start a new practice, we assist with acquisition and formation matters, including, purchase and sales agreements, partnership agreements, leases, review of business plans for compliance with anti-kickback and self-referral laws. We assist current practice owners with employment, compliance, credentialing, billing, and other issues related to the operation of a practice. We also represent chiropractors during business, employment, and contract disputes.

Owning a practice is a great achievement; it is also a significant investment. Our lawyers work with chiropractors to help them protect their investment and build a successful practice.

Criminal Defense

Criminal convictions can cost chiropractic physicians their license. Our criminal defense attorneys are dedicated to helping health care providers protect their freedom during criminal action and minimize the negative impact of a criminal action on the provider’s license and career.

Our attorneys represent chiropractors accused of low-level crimes, such as DUI, theft, and assault, to serious crimes such as fraud, sexual assault, and drug-related crimes. Our criminal defense attorneys are unique in that they only represent health care providers. They are exceptionally knowledgeable in both criminal law and health care law.
