For more than 15 years, Elizabeth Zink-Pearson has served the needs of health care providers around the country. Prior to private practice, she worked in the public sector as a law clerk for the late Judge George C. Edwards of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and as an Attorney Advisor for the U.S. Department of Labor. As a founding member of Pearson & Bernard, PSC in 1998, Liz brought her extensive experience in health law and employment law to the firm along with her characteristic informal, non-legal approach to resolving client conflicts in the ever-changing world of health care.
Over the years, Ms. Pearson has expanded her practice to include corporate organization and merger and acquisitions for health care providers and broadened her representation to include admission to many U.S. District Courts around the country, the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the Fifth, Sixth, Seventh, Ninth and Tenth Circuits, and the U.S. Supreme Court. Her state admissions include Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana.
Consistent with the firm’s mission to counsel and educate clients, Ms. Pearson lectures often for state and national trade associations on many legal topics including Medicare compliance, Fraud and Abuse, Corporate Compliance, Employment Discrimination, and the Fair Labor Standards Act. Liz served as education counsel for the former American Federation for Home Care and also is a frequent contributor to trade association journals and newsletters.
Outside the firm, Ms. Pearson shares her legal background with many community charitable groups. She serves on the Board of Directors of the Northern Kentucky Volunteer Lawyers and as counsel and Board Member of the St. Vincent De Paul Community Pharmacy, a local fully charitable pharmacy for those in need. Ms. Pearson also serves on the Board of the National Family Caregivers Association.
