Biography

Mark Schlein has spent over 40 years of his life fighting crime as a police officer and as a lawyer. At Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman, Mark is the top false claims and whistleblower attorney, committed to serving the public. During his lengthy career, Mark has worked on fraud and financial crime cases numbering in the thousands, resulting in billions of dollars in recovered funds for state and federal governments.

During his 20 years with the Broward County Sheriff's Office (BSO), Mark commanded virtually every major component of the Broward County Sheriff's Office, including patrol, criminal investigations the crime laboratory, SWAT and special operations. Also serving as Accreditation Manager for the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA), Mark oversaw operational and administrative changes that resulted in BSO becoming the country's 68th fully accredited law enforcement agency. He retired in 1993 as a lieutenant colonel and the Director of the Department of Law Enforcement.

In 1994, Mark was asked by Florida's former Attorney General to head a false claims unit that would specialize in health care fraud enforcement. As director of the Florida Medicaid Fraud Control Unit (MFCU), Mark and his staff made over 1,300 arrests and also litigated hundreds of civil cases against health care abusers including use of the False Claims Act. Under Mark's direction, Florida’s MFCU would become one of the most aggressive and elite health care fraud fighting units in the country.

At the end of his tenure with the MFCU, Mark practiced in white-collar crime and health care fraud at one of Florida's largest and most respected law firms, where he represented clients who were under investigation by federal, state or local authorities.

After a brief time as Special Deputy General Counsel in Florida's Department of Health, Mark started work in Florida's Department of Financial Services, where he was a police legal advisor and manager of the major case squad in the Division of Insurance Fraud (DIF). In 2009-2010, the DIF received 12,820 referrals and made 1,042 arrests. In addition to his legal and managerial duties, Mark headed a special unit of detectives that investigated major cases assigned by the Chief Financial Officer or the Director of the DIF.
