The ACR Legal Department provides referrals to attorneys for radiologists and radiation oncologists who do not have representation, or who have an attorney but would like to consult with a specialist in a particular area of the law, such as medical staff bylaws.
We also provide general information on specific issues, such as contracts, with this referral sheet. Please be advised that the materials we provide are for informational purposes only and are not meant to substitute for legal counsel.
While it is not essential that you have local counsel to represent you, your attorney should be familiar with your state law and administrative regulations pertaining to medical practice. Of course, it is important that you and the attorneys discuss fee arrangements as well as the time they expect to spend on the matter, before retaining any of them to represent you.
