As the United States tries to control increases in health care costs, providers and medical billing services have come under ever closer scrutiny, resulting in a surge in criminal charges.
Hospitals, clinics, assisted living facilities, doctors, and other medical care providers can be accused of health care fraud when it is alleged that they billed an insurance company for unnecessary procedures or services never performed, or when they overbill for services performed.
Individuals can also be charged with health care fraud in State or Federal Court.

Attorney Sebald represented me in 2005 for a DUI.

Mr. Sebald is honest with you from the beginning and will do...
Stephen Sebald far exceeded my expectations. As a result of trusting in his extensive knowledge of the law & him working diligently on my case, charges were substantially reduced. He was always on call & went above & beyond in my case. Excellent defense attorney!
I was charged with theft by extortion, a 3rd degree felony which carries a possible sentence of 7 years in prison and 15,000 in fines. Against my better judgement, I took the advice of Stephen and pled guilty for a reduced sentence. Because I listened to his expert advice, I will serve NO prison time, NO jail time, and my fine was minimal. Thanks again Stephen for a tough uphill battle, and you never gave up.
I received a speeding ticket while traveling through Erie, PA. Steve and his expert team took care of everything while I was 600 miles away in North Carolina. He greatly reduced my conviction and fines. Valerie on his team took the time to hand-hold me through the process. I truly appreciate all that Steve and his team did to resolve this positively for me.
Eric has helped us numerous times. He has been there for us
