Preamble: Many of the issues I bring to you are very small, yet each issue is just that, an issue. If you take care of the small issues, then you will be able to build and more importantly, focus on the bigger issues...a larger practice and more family time.

"New Lien Form"

There is a new “Lien /Letter of Protection Template” that can be found on the “Communication Materials” page of the Web site. It was written by a law firm that specializes in protecting doctors. In fact, we were advised that if a lawyer did not honor the lien language, regardless if he countersigned it, he could be brought up on ethics charges and lose with this document.

This was written for New York. Please check with a lawyer in your state to verify applicability. I was advised that this type of language is close in every state, but needs verification locally.
