Dalrymple, Shellhorse, Ellis & Diamond, LLP


Dalrymple, Shellhorse, Ellis & Diamond, LLP is dedicated to representing and advising health care providers in regulatory, transactional, litigation, and criminal matters. The Firm’s clients include long term care providers, licensed professionals and business organizations.

Many of DSED’s lawyers are former Texas Assistant Attorneys General themselves. We leverage that insider knowledge and experience to advise and represent clients before state and federal regulatory agencies in licensing matters, fraud and abuse investigations, government enforcement actions, and Medicare and Medicaid compliance and payment issues.

We advocate on behalf of clients before the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, Texas Health and Human Services Commission, Texas Attorney General’s Office, and most licensing and regulatory agencies including the Texas Medical Board, Texas Board of Nursing, Texas State Board of Pharmacy, and the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners, among others.

Located in Austin, Texas, our geographic proximity to the Texas regulatory agencies increases our ability to leverage our personal and professional relationships with state regulators to effectively and efficiently represent our clients.
