About Michael Walrath
I’ve lived and practiced in Miami since 2004, after earning my undergraduate degree from the University of Maryland and J.D. from the University of Baltimore School of Law. I have dedicated my entire legal career to negotiating and litigating the reasonableness of medical bills. Prior to private practice, I served as Florida counsel to the Fairness Foundation, an Indiana non-profit organization assisting uninsured patients nationwide in resolving unreasonable hospital bills. I then served as In-House Counsel to Olympus Managed Healthcare, Inc., the largest U.S. Cost Containment company serving the international health insurance market, before founding the litigation law firm Medical Bill Clinic, P.A.
As such, I have litigated hundreds if not thousands of hospital accounts against dozens of hospitals and hospital systems in Florida; the only plaintiffs’ attorney in in the state, and one of only a few in the country, with a practice dedicated to litigating these specialized medical billing issues.
I speak frequently on medical billing and hospital lien issues across the state. I am a member of the New York Bar, the Florida Bar, the Southern and Middle District Courts, The American Association of Justice, The Broward County Trial Lawyers Association, the Dade County Justice Association, the Central Florida Justice Association and The Florida Justice Association.
