Daniel Horowitz is a criminal defense specialist.  His defense of chiropractors is legendary.  His victory in the MUA case (2006) saved dozens (perhaps hundreds) of chiropractors from being criminally charged.  Case after case, Daniel Horowitz represents chiropractors targeted by insurance companies and referred to the California Department of Insurance or the Chiropractic Board for investigation.  We understand the chiropractor’s financial reality as Michael Yates J.D., D.C. has been licensed as a chiropractor for over 20 years.

Tom Kensok Chiropractor Defense Lawyer – is a former top prosecutor from Contra Costa County  He charged medical fraud cases and he knows the elements and the grounds for charging chiropractic fraud, billing fraud and scope of practice cases .  As a prosecutor in Contra Costa County, Tom Kensok refused to charge weak cases or cases which were really just business disputes between chiropractors and the insurance companies.  Daniel Russo and Daniel horowitz are criminal defense specialists (certified by the State Bar of California, Board of Legal Specialization).  Both Daniel’s approach chiropractor defense cases from a highly technical view.  As Daniel Horowitz likes to say, “A fair trial is no trial at all!” and the work of this team is often focused on derailing the prosecution before it gets to trial.

Charges against chiropractors are not filed in the dark.  In most cases chiropractors know that they are being looked at.  This is the time to contact a lawyer to see if we can prevent the filing of charges (or negotiate a fair resolution that protects your reputation and license).  If the case has to go to a hearing, we have thousands of hearings and jury trials in experience.  We know how to prepare your case and how to defense you at a board (administrative) hearing.
