Mr Khouri has been practicing law in Orange County and is considered an expert in professional licensing defense and the defense of Medicare/Medi-Cal audits.
With more than 100 cases under his belt, the Medicare fraud attorney has successfully served physicians, dentists, podiatrists, chiropractors, pharmacists, board and care home administrators, and psychologists in all licensure matters.
Medicare fraud generally refers to instances of submitting false claims to a government health care program, an issue that makes up about $50 billion in claims a year.
The Khouri Law Firm, with locations in Dallas and Laguna Hills, California, has also successfully defended criminal defendants in cases ranging from drug conspiracy, alien smuggling, to bank robberies, organized crime violations and immigration fraud.
As an expert in representing health care providers with medicare fraud defense, Mr Khouri has proven his abilities with a number of cases and has spoken at multiple events.
He is recognized throughout California and the country for his integrity and firm resolve to help his clients get the best possible resolution to their licensing or criminal matters.
“Being under investigation for things like phantom billing, accusations of billing unnecessary medical services, or other instances of medicare fraud, is serious,” said Mr Khouri. “Having a medicare fraud lawyer firm, such Khouri Law, that knows what they’re doing is essential.
“Medicare and medicaid fraud constitutes a federal felony, and fines can be enormous and daunting to think about.”
He added the law firm’s speciality was handling highly complex medical fraud. “We have similar cases and are acknowledged by our clients for going the extra mile to develop a cohesive and intelligent defense plan.
“These cases can be highly stressful, so clients are assured and given peace of mind that their representations are being handled effectively, always on the front foot, and efficiently.”
Khouri’s associates are Behzad Vahidi, Esq. and Jennifer Gatewood, both passionate members of the fraud defense team.
Behzad is an associate attorney of professional experience in everything from criminal defense to IP law. Jennifer was Staff Attorney and Director of Pro Bono at a children’s legal non-profit organization. She has a specialty in areas of health care fraud and abuse, making her a critical part keeping the team at its best with all medicare fraud cases.
Mr Khouri advised: “If anyone feels certain they aren’t in the wrong or that their case will be in their favor, or if you are simply in the early stages of auditing, it could be understandable to wonder if you even need a medicare fraud lawyer in the first place.
“Don’t make the mistake of going into this alone. Even if you made an honest mistake, this is often not forgiven when it comes to these cases.
“Be sure you are prepared every step of the way by reaching out for a consultation to determine which steps you should be taking.”
