Rockland County is just to the north of Manhattan and is home to 290,000 residents. Some of Rockland County’s great rock formations include Indian Rock, Maria’s Rock which tells of a girl that died of hunger, and Spook Rock which is a large cluster of rocks where Algonquin Nation Native Americans sacrificed a Dutch farmer’s daughter.
Rockland County is home to a number of lawyers who are familiar with the confusing New York court system. Lawyers in Rockland County give advice on cases like divorce, automobile accidents, marijuana charges, real estate matters, and contract cases. White Plains lawyers regularly refer cases to Rockland County attorneys if the cases are better situated in Rockland County than Westchester County.
Recently in Rockland County, some medical service providers were accused of overcharging the New York State Health Insurance Program. Medical providers were giving patients normal physical therapy treatments, for example, but billing for more expensive services. In some cases, the state insurance program was paying more than 20 times the amount a procedure would normally cost. State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli caught the overcharges and will play a key role in producing evidence.
