PICTURE THIS. You receive a call or letter from your regulating body, "the College", informing you that you have been accused of one of the following: improperly touching a patient in a sexual manner; falsely informing a patient that your treatments would cure his arthritis; or failing to provide a patient with a medically necessary service.

I have had the good fortune of dealing with Tracey Tremayne-Lloyd for a health law issue over the past three years. Tracey was hired by myself and several colleagues with regards to a professional issue for which she provided timely, clear and insightful thoughts as to the direction we should be taking in the matter.
At no time did I feel Tracey was eager to engage nor afraid of pursuing the issue. On the contrary, I felt she provided an objective perspective and quite well thought through advice.
In summary, our dealings with Tracey have provided some personal relief from an otherwise stressful situation. I would highly recommend her services.
