February 10, 2009

Michelman & Robinson, LLP, (“M&R”) a dynamic full service law firm with locations in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Orange County is pleased to announce that Andrew H. Selesnick will be joining the Firm as a Partner in its Los Angeles Office.

Mr. Selesnick brings over twenty years of incomparable experience and expertise in a diversity of business law matters, including health care, corporate formation and transactions, business litigation, and more to M&R, beginning February 17, 2009. 

Mr. Selesnick, who will Chair the Firm’s Health Care Law Practice Group, has achieved an unparalleled level of success throughout his career in representing all specialties in health care litigation; business formation, dissolution, acquisitions, and risk management. He has successfully litigated a number of the state’s most high profile health care cases including those involving all of the major health plans, as well as many independent practice associations, securing millions of dollars for his clients.

Mr. Selesnick’s recent notable cases include representing a health care company on behalf of approximately 50,000 physicians in a $94 million nationwide claim against a major payer and representing the American College of Emergency Physicians, State Chapter of California, Inc. in a regulatory dispute brought by payer advocacy groups to change the methodology to reimburse non-contracted emergency service providers.

In 2009, he was featured in the Los Angeles Times and the Daily Journal, among others, for his involvement in one of California’s most controversial health care decisions, Prospect Medical Group v. Northridge Emergency Medical Group, et al. (2009) S142209 Ct.App. 2/3 B172737, in which the state’s Supreme Court held that patients cannot be billed when their HMOs fail to pay. As a result of his expertise in health care matters, Mr. Selesnick has been invited by both the State Senate and the State Assembly to comment on legislation and regulations affecting providers.

Prior to joining M&R, Mr. Selesnick founded the law firm of Alleguez & Selesnick. The firm was involved in obtaining critical health care decisions throughout California.
