You take care of your patients. Who takes care of you?


Our Healthcare Law Practice Group provides exceptional legal counsel to Pennsylvania healthcare professionals, providers and organizations of all types. Our approach is uniquely sophisticated, holistic, integrated, and solution-oriented, understanding that healthcare can be at once highly technical, highly regulated, highly competitive, highly entrepreneurial and yet a highly personal calling and a noble service to humanity. Answering the question above, we offer this response: At Buckley Brion, we are more than lawyers. We are trusted advisors and counselors who take care of our healthcare clients so they can do what they were trained to do.


Lead by a seasoned healthcare attorney with experience inside healthcare organizations and academia, our Healthcare Law Practice Group provides legal advice and representation to physicians, psychologists, dentists, sub specialists, practice groups, for-profit and nonprofit providers, elder care providers, institutional providers, outpatient centers, and therapeutic and diagnostic service providers.
