DOH and AHCA Experienced

The law is complex and investigations by the Florida Department of Health (DOH) and Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) can be complicated and stressful. If you have received notice of an investigation, administrative complaint, emergency suspension order, notice of intent to deny, preliminary audit letter, or other notice from DOH or AHCA regarding your professional nursing, physical, medical, facility or other medical license, obtaining competent advice from an experienced healthcare license attorney early in the process can be beneficial.

I am a Registered Nurse in South Florida and I was represented by Mr. Kevin Taylor with The Law Offices of Jeffrey Howell for the DOH/AHCA exemption process. I was very pleased with the process from start to finish. I was easily able to contact Kevin whenever I had questions and he was always quick to respond. We worked together on packaging my exemption application and I was extremely happy with how it was professionally presented to the board. He expedited the submission and with his close contacts within the agency, I was cleared extremely quickly. If I were to have gone at it alone, attempting to deal with the bureaucracy of the agency, I may still be waiting. Retaining the office was well worth it as I am now free to practice without further issues.

Strongly recommend Attorney Rick Strong. Attorney Strong represented me in a real estate matter. From day one, he handled my business matter in an expeditious fashion. I honestly do not have a negative thing to say. It was reassuring to know that I had an attorney whom takes a great deal of pride in his profession and being a good person. Myself along with my family can't say Thank You enough for the peace of mind you brought to a frustrating situation. Once again, Thank you for your hard work in helping me and God Bless You!!

Jeff assisted me with a false claim against my Nursing License. He is knowledgeable of Fl. Board of Nursing complaint processes and helped me protect and defend my right to practice. I highly recommend him to other Nurses.

I want to thank their office, specifically Tom Buchanan and Rick Strong for assisting me with obtaining my employment exemption. Their expertise and experience speaks volumes. I will not hesitate to utilize their services again. Victory is sweet and they helped me achieve it🌹

Both Jeff and Rick are very knowlegable in Healthcare law and the Administrative process with State agencies. Both worked very hard in saving my clinic's license through AHCA. Rick communicated with me day and night and answered any and all questions or concerns I had. They are worth the money!
