I learned the value of teamwork and collaboration as a Division One athlete, and I’ve carried that point of view with me into the practice of law. As a litigator, I work closely with clients to understand their needs, striking a balance between offensive and defensive strategies to target innovative and creative tactics that can successfully address disputed issues and achieve favorable outcomes.

Ms. Carroll concentrates her practice in litigation, with an emphasis on representing healthcare providers at both the state and federal levels and within arbitration forums. Her experience encompasses serving as counsel for hospitals in medical staffing and peer review disciplinary matters arising out of issues related to quality care and patient safety. She also provides risk management guidance on issues at the intersection of various state laws and medical licensing regulations, including the potential impact of physician medical staff disciplinary actions triggering the obligation to report to the National Practitioner Data Bank (NPDB).

Ms. Carroll’s work includes the representation of hospitals, physicians, physician practices, and pharmaceutical companies in matters related to restrictive covenants, breach of contract, violations of due process and fundamental fairness, defamation and trade libel claims, as well as matters related to professional licensure and credentialing. She also handles anti-competitive claims alleging violations of New Jersey’s Anti-Trust Act, the Sherman Anti-Trust Act, and the Lanham Act, in addition to employment related claims, including violations of the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (NJLAD) and the Conscientious Employee Protection Act (CEPA).

Ms. Carroll counsels her clients on the most effective and economical legal strategies by evaluating liability and exposure against alleged damages. She handles a broad range of day-to-day tasks beginning at the inception of a matter, including orders to show cause, serving and responding to discovery, ensuring compliance with court-ordered deadlines, appearing and defending depositions, and retaining experts, through resolution by way of settlement, motion practice, or alternative dispute resolution.
