Elizabeth (Ellie) Tucker is dedicated to providing effective, efficient, and innovative legal health care solutions. As an associate in the Health Care Services practice, Ellie focuses on regulatory and operational health care law. While she represents an array of health care providers, she works most frequently with senior housing and long term care providers and post-acute care providers, advising on operational matters and representing them at state and federal levels.

Ellie also counsels clients on a broad array of operational matters including, but not limited to: 

  • State Licensure Rules for various health care providers
