We are pleased to announce that Page, Wolfberg & Wirth has named new partners to our practice. Daniel J. Pedersen and Ryan S. Stark became partners of PWW on September 1, 2018 and will assume additional management and planning responsibilities. Dan and Ryan have each been with the firm for over a decade and are well known to our clients throughout the country.
Dan has been with firm since 2004 and concentrates his legal practice in the areas of compliance, Medicare audits and reimbursement. He spends much of his time performing compliance and claim reviews, including on-site visits and training sessions and handling Medicare appeals on behalf of clients around the country.
Ryan joined the firm in 2007 and has become our HIPAA expert; he counsels clients on privacy and security as well as labor relations and other compliance matters. Ryan co-authored the Ambulance Service Guide to HIPAA Compliance and is featured in the only EMS-specific HIPAA training video, HIPAA TV 2.0.
We are also happy to announce that Christie M. Mellott has been promoted to Of Counsel with PWW. Christie joined the firm shortly after it began in 2000 and counsels clients on Medicare Provider Enrollment, employment, contracting, workplace safety and administrative law issues.
Our Commitment Remains the Same
Even though we are entering a new phase for PWW, some things aren’t changing one bit – including the PWW name and the industry-focused, high-quality legal advice, consulting expertise, and practical information that has made us the industry’s leading EMS law firm for nearly 20 years. And the two of us aren’t going anywhere – we’re simply adding to our “bench strength” to help lead us into a new era as we continue our decades of service to the EMS community. Both of us will continue practicing law full time and speaking at PWW conferences and other EMS industry seminars as we always have!
We are excited about these changes as we look to the future and continue to strive to be your trusted source for legal advice, consulting services, education and information.
Doug Woflberg and Steve Wirth
