The healthcare world can be a tumultuous and evolving machine, but Valerie Michael is able to handle any tribulations hurled at her in the healthcare law landscape. Her practice consists primarily of healthcare law, dealing with issues in healthcare professional licensure defense and compliance and regulatory matters. She also handles civil and criminal cases in Medicare and Medicaid fraud, along with facility licensing and certification. Her availability during non-business hours is a boon to physicians continuously occupied with patients at all hours. She is eager to help alleviate clients' confusion in complicated legal matters and be efficient throughout every stage of their case. Her ability to grasp new concepts quickly and her commitment to answering her client's questions, no matter how big or small, showcases her commitment to client service.

In her downtime, she can be found baking and spending time with her beloved dog, Bartlet, named in honor of The West Wing’s, President Bartlet. She delights in attending as many concerts as possible and partaking in trivia nights.


Valerie volunteers with NAMI Lexington and tutors with the Carnegie Center for Literacy. Additionally, she is a silent auction committee member for the KET Summer Celebration.
