Verdict: Charges Dismissed
Doctor’s career and reputation saved. A chief medical officer who is a respected physician supervised other doctors at a state facility. When it was discovered that the other doctors filed fraudulent claims for services they were indicted by the grand jury. The chief medical officer was also indicted for allegedly facilitating the fraudulent claims of the other doctors. The chief medical officer called Lawrence & Peck. We reviewed the investigation reports and the transcript of the grand jury and made a motion to set aside the charges because the presentation of evidence by state investigators to the grand jury was severely distorted. Charges were dismissed and the physician was able to resume his medical career.
