Marc S. Katz
Marc Katz assists clients in the long-term care industry in civil actions and by advising on risk management to prevent lawsuits from being filed and to allow facilities to better defend themselves when sued.
Marc has represented long-term care providers in California—skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, residential care facilities for the elderly, intermediate care facilities, residential care facilities for developmentally disabled individuals, in-home health service providers and hospice providers—in more than 900 civil actions. Those lawsuits involve claims of elder abuse, dependent adult abuse, violation of patient’s rights, willful misconduct, medical/nursing malpractice, fraud, and intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress.
Marc also works with his clients in responding to citations and statements of deficiencies issued by state and federal agencies. He has participated in the preparation of plans of correction and in conducting administrative appeals on regulatory matters.
In addition to protecting his clients in civil cases and regulatory claims, Marc trains his clients on risk management techniques both to prevent lawsuits from being filed and to put his clients in the best position possible to better defend themselves when sued or cited. This training incorporates the importance of compliance with Title 22 and OBRA regulations as they impact civil lawsuits and his clients' compliance with state and federal regulations.
Marc is a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates and has extensive trial experience in both the state and federal courts and in representing clients at administrative law hearings.
