TAHC&H Faculty/Presenters: Paul Weidenfeld, JD and Ashley Morgan, JD | Liles Parker Attorneys & Counselors at Law About the Presenter:
Paul Weidenfeld brings a unique perspective to False Claims Act cases, Fraud Investigations and Qui Tam, or whistleblower, lawsuits which is partly the result of his rare combination of having BOTH extensive litigation experience (more than 50 trials and 25 appellate) AND subject matter expertise (10 years as a fraud prosecutor, 2 years as the DOJ Healthcare Fraud Coordinator, and experience as a partner in a major healthcare law firm). Virtually every litigation decision in these complex cases requires an understanding of the persons and agencies involved, an understanding of the law, and an ability to predict how the litigation will actually evolve in the legal system — and there is no one better suited to help in this process. Finally, Paul’s experiences have taught him that there is no one-size-fits-all in the world of settlement or conflict resolution, and he is well known for his ability to find innovative solutions to difficult litigation problems.
