Article 1:  Employment Law Issues In Health Care: This is Where the Action is!


By: Lori T. Williams, Esq.


I interviewed attorney Lucy Franco about how employment law is impacting the health care industry.  She commented that "just as health care is expected to be an exploding industry in the coming years, I believe that hospitals, health care insurers and physician practices will need guidance regarding their employment practices and representation in connection with the myriad of new health care laws that will impact their business.  I think it will be the most ground-breaking area of law over the next several decades.  I want to be where the action is!"

Earlier this year, I interviewed employment attorney John Holmquist regarding his view of social media's impact in the workplace.  Read a few of John's blogs on the subject and his responses to my 6 questions  here.  Click  here to post your comments to this blog.

For legal referrals:  


"Dear Lori, Thank you for the referral you gave me to an employment attorney. After a year of not getting what I felt I needed from my prior attorney, you provided the bridge to get the help I needed. Before I felt I was chasing my other attorney and was left with unanswered questions. I was not comfortable with how my case was being handled.  At a time when I needed some clear direction in my life and appropriate legal counsel, you knew where I could turn. 


Lori your services provided me with strong, experienced legal counsel. You saved me the time and energy seeking alternative counsel and the stress of wondering if I found the right attorney from the start. Within a week I was able to meet with my new attorney and he spent much time going over all the details of my case. My questions were not just answered. I was educated as to why this is and how we can proceed. I am so grateful for the direction you and your colleague showed me.  You certainly do connect the right client with the right professional." Christie
