Henry Appel

Henry Appel has been in the Health and Human Services since 2005. During that time, he has handled complex cases involving the Department of Medicaid and the Department of Health, and has represented State boards in proceedings to discipline medical professionals. From 2000 until 2005, he acted as an appellate attorney for death penalty cases as part of the Capital Crime Section.
