Of Counsel Thomas Burns scores win in 11th Circuit

Thomas A. Burns, of counsel to Creed & Gowdy, won a $2.5m Medicare fraud conspiracy that went to a 10-day jury trial and then on appeal in the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. Thomas argued the case in April, and today was issued an opinion that reversed three of his client's convictions for insufficient evidence.
