Currently, he focuses on representing individuals and corporations at all stages of federal criminal and civil financial fraud matters primarily involving violations of healthcare, FCPA and securities laws as well as violations of FDA and environmental rules and regulations.
In May 2021, the University of Miami paid the United States and the state of Florida approximately $22 million to resolve allegations that it violated the federal False Claims Act stemming from a lawsuit filed by Mr. Sloman on behalf of a former University of Miami senior executive who alleged that the school’s healthcare system billed millions of dollars in unnecessary lab tests to Medicare and stuck patients with hidden charges for clinic visits. Mr. Sloman's client was awarded approximately $4 million as a reward for initiating the suit against his former employer.
