In 2014, he moved to Seattle and began working at the largest medical malpractice defense firm in the Pacific Northwest. At the end of 2017, Eddie moved back home to New York and rejoined the Jacob Fuchsberg Law Firm, bringing with him the experience of being a defense attorney representing physician and healthcare systems.
Eddie has tried medical negligence cases before both judges and juries touching upon many areas of medicine, including allegations of off-label prescriptions, failure to diagnosis cauda equina syndrome, and failure to diagnosis cancer, including colon, duodenal, and cervical cancer. He handles all matters from inception to trial, including any appellate matters. Eddie loves writing appellate briefs and has argued before the appellate division.
Eddie is very interested in fraud in healthcare and had worked on Qui tam and deceptive and misleading business practice cases. He tries to analyze all billing and medical records he comes across for evidence of overbilling, upcoding, unbundling, Stark law violations, and other fraudulent practices.
Eddie also has experience dealing with high profile matters. While in the Pacific Northwest he was counsel in highly publicized civil and disciplinary cases involving a physician whose medical license was suspended over accusations of overprescribing opioids, benzodiazepines, and engaging in sexual misconduct with patients.
While not working, he enjoys exercising, traveling, politics and spending time with his wife and cat. He volunteers one week every month helping take care of a feral/stray cat colony in Long Island City.
