Physician Employment Contract Expert Development and Review – 727-895-1200- or email below

Doctors employment contracts reviewed by board certified employment law expert attorney.

Board cer­ti­fied Florida Bar mem­bers are the only Florida attor­neys allowed to iden­tify them­selves as “Board Certified,”“Specialist,” “Expert” or to use the let­ters “B.C.S.” for Board Cer­ti­fied Specialist.

A professional contract can be the most controlling factor for years in your income, practice and career. Your negotiations are too important to leave to chance. You need a Board- Certified Specialist* on your side.

My name is Phyllis Towzey. I am a specialist-attorney who does physician employment contract development and review.  I represent physicians, medical groups, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, dentists, chiropractors, and other health care professionals in employment contract negotiations.

I have reviewed over 4,000 contracts for physicians in the past 25 years. 

I am among the first group of attorneys to be board-certified in employment law by the Florida Bar.  I specialize in Employment Law and for the past 25 years a significant part of my practice has focused on Employment Agreements and Severance Agreements for Physicians, Dentists and all types of health care professionals and practices anywhere in Florida. It may be that currently I review more contracts for more doctors than any other attorney in Florida.
