In today’s rapidly changing health care market it is essential to have legal counsel that understands the business side of the health care field as well as the strategic direction of our health care system. Reimbursement, regulatory and delivery system changes are creating opportunities for new partnerships and clinical integrations that are often challenged by technology or regulatory constraints. In this evolving environment, David’s clients appreciate having an attorney who understands their business and their goals, and how to navigate legal and compliance challenges.

As a member of the firm’s Health Care Service Group, David represents community mental health centers, hospitals, physicians, and long term care facilities in a variety of matters. He regularly assists clients with regulatory compliance, reimbursement and audit appeals, licensure enforcement actions, internal investigations, clinical and financial integration transactions, commercial and corporate transactions, and nonprofit corporate governance. He has given presentations on a variety of legal, regulatory compliance and governance issues for local, state and national legal associations as well as health care provider groups and trade associations.

Outside the office David volunteers and supports a variety of civic, service and cultural organizations. He is an emeritus board member of the Phoenix Theatre of Indianapolis and the Cope Environmental Center in Centerville, Indiana. He is a current board member of the Indiana Recycling Coalition and the Coalition for Our Immigrant Neighbors, and serves as legal counsel and board member for the Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library. He is an active supporter of organizations that expand opportunities for individuals who are marginalized due to disabilities and other adversities. David served many years on the Board of Directors of Tangram, an organization that helps individuals with disabilities live actively and independently in their communities. He is a Team Leader for the Wheeler Mission Team and serves as a member of the Indianapolis Advisory Board for Back on My Feet, which provides community support and resources for homeless individuals.
