Jim is a committed physician advocate. To that end, he is active in many regional and national organizations related to physicians and the health care industry. Jim is the co-chairman of a national conference of health care attorneys focused on physician legal issues held annually in Washington D.C. An adjunct to the Washington D.C. conference is physician-focused lobbying through the Small Business Council of America.

Jim primarily represents physicians and physician groups of all sizes, as well as many other health care providers. Jim regularly counsels his clients on a wide array of physician-related health care projects. These projects include physician networks, payor negotiation and contracting strategies, accountable care organizations, joint ventures, as well as various relationships involving physicians, hospitals and privately funded investor groups. The legal issues involve a broad range of federal and state laws such as the Anti-Kickback Law, the Stark Law, antitrust law, the myriad of billing rules and regulations as well as general business planning and representation.

Jim also represents many dentists and dental practices in structuring practice ownership models, associate buy-ins, partner buy-outs, employment agreements and compensation planning, and practice sales and acquisitions.

Jim studied law and received his Juris Doctor, With Distinction, from Ohio Northern University. He also earned both a bachelor’s and master’s degree from The University of Akron College of Business Administration.

A life-long resident of Northeast Ohio, Jim currently lives in Bath with his wife and three children. When he is not working, Jim can often be found with his children on one of the hiking trails or fishing ponds in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
