Experienced representing both plaintiffs and defendants in court, Sarvnaz “Miriam” Mackin brings a well-rounded perspective to her healthcare litigation practice. Miriam has served as counsel on civil matters including medical negligence, wrongful death, elder abuse, products liability and complex business torts.

Savvy Healthcare Litigator

Having spent nearly a decade practicing healthcare law, Miriam has a deep understanding of the complexities of litigation in the healthcare arena. She is adroit at navigating the court process, from drafting and opposing motions to trial preparation, mediation, negotiating settlement agreements and drawing up reports for clients and insurance carriers. Miriam skillfully drafts a diverse range of motions including motions for summary judgment, motions for judgment on pleadings, motions in limine, demurrers, motions to strike, and discovery motions.

Counsels a Variety of Healthcare Providers

Miriam’s clients include skilled nursing facilities, residential care facilities, congregate living facilities, and medical care providers. Miriam defends these and other healthcare clients in state and federal court in litigation involving wrongful elder abuse, fraud, the False Claims Act, the Anti-Kickback Statute, the Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act (MICRA), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and wrongful death.

Understands Complex Regulatory Compliance Issues

During law school, Miriam worked in international finance and banking, drafting market riders for sovereign and general market risk provisions to ensure regulatory compliance as well as administration of capital market debt issues. Miriam brings this ease for complexity and compliance when advising her clients in the equally complex landscape of healthcare law.

Life Outside the Firm

When she is not in the courtroom, Miriam spends her time exploring new restaurants around Koreatown (LA’s only 24-hour neighborhood), jogging and iPhone photography.
