Minnesota Law Firm Representing Professionals In MDH And DHS Investigations

At the Law Office of Sivertson and Barrette, P.A., in St. Paul, Minnesota, much of our work involves maltreatment investigations by the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH).

If your employer is licensed through one of these agencies, they must report alleged misconduct to DHS or MDH. Nurses and other health care providers, including the owners and operators of home health agencies and personal care assistance (PCA) companies, can face investigations by DHS or MDH, as well as actions from their professional licensing boards when complaints are made.

If you have been contacted by DHS or MDH, we can help. Our law firm represents health care providers and other professionals, fighting a wide range of allegations, including:

  • Child and vulnerable adult maltreatment
  • Fraudulent or improper billing
  • Child abuse or neglect
  • Sex or inappropriate behavior with a vulnerable adult
  • Operating without a license
  • Improper or fraudulent documentation

You Have The Right To Legal Representation

DHS and MDH probably won’t tell you, but you should know: You have the right to be represented by legal counsel. If you go into an investigation without help, you could be putting your license at risk.

It is never a good idea to enter into an investigation on your own. Your words could be twisted and used against you, and you won’t know exactly what your rights are. Talk with us before talking with DHS or MDH. We can help you understand exactly what to expect, guide you through the process and help protect your business and your professional license.
