She negotiates with liability insurance carriers, patients and their counsel as well as litigates creditor claims in South Carolina probate courts.
Sarah also has experience with advising clients on healthcare regulatory matters such as HIPAA, peer review protection and National Practitioner Databank compliance. In addition to her healthcare clients, Sarah assists clients with their commercial collection litigation. Sarah also assists our firm's commercial real estate clients with collecting overdue rents and eviction proceedings.
Her clients include community hospitals, physicians, physician groups, long term care facilities and veterinarians.
