Our firm focuses primarily on federal criminal defense matters, with special attention to fraud cases involving white collar crime and healthcare fraud. As science and investigative tools have changed, criminal cases have become increasingly technical when forensic evidence is reviewed. Additionally, state and federal laws have changed in important ways that provide investigators and prosecutors with more leeway in monitoring and surveilling just about anyone.
Electronic surveillance is accomplished not just with wiretaps, but with all manner of digital processes, including pen register information from cell and landline telephone companies, that show everyone you called and everyone who called you, when and for how long; closed circuit TVs mounted on utility poles to catch video and audio of unsuspecting suspects; GPS trackers placed under cars for "sight-unseen" surveillance of moving targets; etc.
As a highly experienced criminal defense attorney, James W. Burdick of Burdick Law, P.C., is prepared to meet these challenges, working with experienced private investigators who are retired federal agents, forensic specialists, computer experts and lab technicians when necessary. Our Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, law firm is committed to carefully managing its caseload in order to ensure each case receives the attention and time it deserves; in order to accomplish this goal, we take only a limited number of cases at any one time, so that every client receives personal, constant and direct attention from us. We offer each client an unusually high level of personal and individualized attention when addressing and resolving his or her criminal defense matter.
We listen to our clients to identify their goals and fully understand and identify the often complex legal issues involved with their cases. Contact us to schedule an initial consultation with our Detroit-area healthcare fraud attorney. Our work centers around white collar crimes, and we have extensive experience defending people accused of drug crimes, computer-related crimes, and violent offenses. Mr. Burdick counsels and defends clients in regard to the following:

Healthcare Fraud, Licensing and Discipline, DEA De-Registration and Medicare/Medicaid and Insurance Exclusion and De-Participation
State and federal law enforcement have dramatically increased their efforts to crack down on healthcare fraud, often resulting in excessive regulatory intervention. The United States Department of Justice has sent out teams of special prosecutors in Strike Force operations in several major cities, starting in Detroit. As a result, more and more doctors and other healthcare professionals find themselves under investigation, sometimes even for conduct they did not engage in. This often results in professional repercussions as well – even if no criminal charges stick – leading to disciplinary actions, revocation of a doctor's, pharmacist's or nurse's license.
From his years of experience as a member of Michigan's Board of Medicine and thereafter, James W. Burdick has developed a thorough, hands-on understanding of all the special issues and need of healthcare professionals with respect to discipline and reinstatement of licenses, fighting Medicare/Medicaid Exclusions and DEA De-Registration actions. As a result, Mr. Burdick is in a unique position to counsel and defend healthcare professionals who are accused of healthcare fraud or substance abuse, and who find themselves facing disciplinary action as well. Mr. Burdick represents doctors (osteopathic or medical), dentists, nurses, pharmacists, chiropractors, podiatrists, psychologists, nurses, nurse practitioners, physicians' assistants and more in the following areas:
- Healthcare fraud, licensing and discipline
- License reinstatement for pharmacists
- Medicare and Medicaid fraud
- Unlawful referral (kickbacks), over-billing, over-utilization
- Drug utilization and over-prescribing drugs
- DEA registration denial and deregistration
