As any healthcare provider knows, being proactive is incredibly important to the success of your business and the health of your patients. When a legal issue arises within your company or between your company and a third party, you need to reach out for help.

Based in San Clemente, I’ve provided legal representation for all kinds of healthcare providers in Orange County and statewide for more than two decades. For accessible counsel and aggressive advocacy focused on results, schedule an initial consultation.

Business Transactions: Benefiting California Healthcare Providers

Healthcare providers must be confident that the transactional sides of their operations are in order. Issues concerning contracts in particular should be regularly monitored and handled by an experienced business attorney.

At Winsten Law Group, I’ve developed a business transactions practice that is always aware of your goals and needs. I offer healthcare provider representation in the following areas and more:

  • Purchase and sale agreements

  • Physician-hospital agreements

  • Supervisory agreements

  • Ancillary and managed care service contracts

  • Management agreements

  • Transfers of ownership

  • Forming and re-structuring legal relationships

  • Negotiation of assignments of leases

  • Entity selection for new healthcare companies

  • Facility acquisitions and sales

  • General counsel for ancillary and managed care providers, management service organizations, and independent physician associations

A number of these healthcare transactions may overlap with concerns such as reimbursements, HIPAA requirements, and other regulations. I make sure to understand your specific transaction goals and how they relate to the bigger picture in order to seek favorable results for you and your company.

Regulatory Defense Representation

If you are a medical professional or an owner of a healthcare provider in California, and you feel that a government agency or medical board has exceeded its authority in investigating you, you need a licensing and regulatory defense attorney on your side. You need a lawyer with experience, extensive knowledge of healthcare law, a personal commitment to your rights, and a recognized reputation for results.

As your dedicated regulatory defense lawyer, I provide attentive personal service to healthcare providers of all kinds. If you need help with issues involving federal, state, and local government agencies, medical boards and staff, HIPAA investigations, or Medi-Cal / Medicare appeals, schedule a consultation with me. It’s your first step toward freedom from a looming legal crisis, one that jeopardizes your ability to practice and provide healthcare for your patients.



Business Litigation for Healthcare Providers ​

Healthcare providers can benefit from the aggressive advocacy of an experienced litigation attorney. Alleged medical fraud, business disputes, and issues of billing and reimbursement can quickly become major legal crises if they aren’t dealt with effectively.

At Winsten Law Group, I serve healthcare industry clients throughout California, including San Clemente, Irvine, Newport Beach, and Laguna Beach. When litigation over malpractice allegations or medical bill negotiation becomes a foregone conclusion, let me be your advocate. Backed by decades of experience and a reputation for results, my goal is to protect healthcare providers' interests during complex litigation.

Compliance With State & Federal Laws

Strict compliance with state and federal laws could not be more important to owners and proprietors of healthcare provider business organizations. My firm provides skilled counsel for healthcare providers ranging from hospitals and long-term providers to organizations of physicians and behavioral care providers.

My 30+ years of experience as a business lawyer translates to specific knowledge of issues regarding compliance with state and federal laws, including HIPAA compliance, Medicare compliance, and compliance statutes related to drugs and devices. Ensure that you are on the right side of the law at all times, thereby significantly decreasing the likelihood of future disputes. Let’s begin crafting health care compliance strategies for your healthcare provider business.

Healthcare Industry Employment Defense

When so much is on the line for you and your business, it’s important to stand on solid legal ground. I represent health professionals in employment issues such as credentialing, contracts, termination, licensure, and lawsuits that may be brought against your company. I strive to offer pragmatic, purposeful advocacy on behalf of employers in Orange County and the rest of California.

Insurance Companies / Third-Party Payors

Relationships with third-party payors are vital to providing effective healthcare. As your healthcare provider attorney, let me help you arrange, negotiate, and review third-party payor contracts so that you receive timely reimbursement for your services. Sometimes, litigation is necessary in order to enforce an insurance company's compliance with the terms of those contracts. I will help you seek a favorable outcome and a path forward.


Whether your needs are spontaneous and urgent, or part of long-term planning, it’s important to trust in experienced counsel. Schedule a consultation with me to begin navigating healthcare law successfully.
