Texas Medicaid Fraud Prevention Act (TMFPA)

Brewer, Pritchard & Buckley, P.C., represented a dentist (In Re: Jabbary et al.) who blew the whistle on multiple unlawful acts under the TMFPA by a multioffice dental practice. Counsel for the defense made a series of motions that caused the case to stretch on for months beyond the trial court's decision to hold the defendants liable, including two appeals to the Texas Court of Appeals and one appeal to the Texas Supreme Court. After Brewer, Pritchard & Buckley, P.C., successfully fought back these appeals, the allegations forced the multioffice dental practice to declare bankruptcy where a multimillion-dollar settlement was obtained for Brewer, Pritchard & Buckley, P.C.'s client. An earlier settlement would have saved the multioffice dental practice from the time, expense and near-disaster of bankruptcy.
