Overview

Rich Castagna is a partner at GMR and chair of its Insurance and Healthcare Fraud Litigation department.

Rich has dedicated his career to helping his clients combat health care fraud.  He counsels his clients on both routine and complex matters associated with healthcare fraud as well as those areas that parallel and intersect with this complex area of the law.  He works tirelessly to assist his clients in uncovering and ending abusive and fraudulent activities, while at the same time helping to ensure that his clients avoid the legal and financial pitfalls that often accompany such complex investigations.

Under Rich’s leadership, the GMR team of trial attorneys has counseled clients regarding large and complex fraud investigations in various jurisdictions including Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, and Maryland.  The team, under Rich’s direction and supervision, has assisted clients by helping them to recognize and stop fraudulent practices. 

Rich also leads the Firm’s well-regarded appellate department. GMR regularly handles matters in state and federal appellate courts in Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey. Rich is responsible for ensuring our team effectively frames issues, drafts clear and compelling briefs, and presents effective arguments.

Although Rich has worked with clients to successfully resolve their concerns without the need for litigation on countless occasions, Rich is proud to lead a team of experienced and successful trial lawyers who work as tirelessly to achieve his clients’ goals when called upon.  Over the years, GMR has been the preeminent law firm in the region for litigating complex healthcare fraud matters.  In fact, on behalf of his clients, Rich has helped recoup millions of dollars in judgments and settlements and, perhaps more importantly, assisted his clients in ending abusive practices that would have cost them even more going forward.

Rich also leads the firm’s Recovery and Subrogation Team.  Through the firm’s aggressive and proactive strategies, GMR provides cost-effective representation to its clients who have made substantial recoveries.  Because casualty losses can strike at any moment, Rich and his team are available around the clock to provide timely and proactive investigations using the newest technologies.

Rich prides himself in knowing that his clients are prepared for litigation before they ever enter the arena.  Rich counsels his clients on best practices in claims-handling and regularly lectures claims handlers on practices that should be avoided. 

Before a lawsuit is filed, Rich takes it upon himself to counsel his clients in the benefits of litigation as well as the drawbacks.  In fact, he routinely counsels clients and their staff on the problems that can and should be avoided when engaging in complex healthcare investigations to ensure that if litigation is necessary, such litigation will be successful.  Once a complex fraud lawsuit has been filed, Rich has the necessary experience to ensure that his clients are fully prepared to testify as he has prepared countless individual and corporate witnesses to testify at both depositions and trial. 

Over the years, Rich has successfully pursued actions against individuals and corporations who have fraudulently pilfered millions of dollars from his clients.  As a result, he has secured multi-million dollar judgments against these actors and satisfactorily resolved these actions in his clients’ favor by recovering millions of dollars and secured voluntary agreements by the fraudulent actors to cease their fraudulent activities and waive many millions of dollars in outstanding and future invoices.

GMR had a record-breaking month with 6 consecutive jury trial defense verdicts.  Claire Neiger started the month off with a defense verdict in a general liability trial before Philadelphia Judge Annette Rizzo that involved a fall at a Philadelphia hospital resulting in serious injury.  That same day, Kristine Meindl obtained a defense verdict in a Delaware County motor vehicle trial before Judge Christine Fizzano Cannon.  In Montgomery County, Eamon Merrigan prevailed on a medical malpractice case tried before Judge Thomas P. Rodgers.

Richard Castagna, Matthew Moroney and Kristine Meindl each obtained defense verdicts in Philadelphia County motor vehicle cases.   Mr. Castagna won his trial on liability and Ms. Meindl with a limited tort defense.  Although Mr. Moroney conceded negligence, the jury did not find factual cause, resulting in a defense victory.
