Wade “Bo” Perry represents regional and local hospitals, physicians, long-term care facilities and mental health care facilities on a wide variety of issues, including regulatory compliance, corporate transactional, employment, HIPAA, increased profitability, ensuring payment, acquisitions and legislative matters. He stays abreast of looming industry issues such as Medicaid expansion, Affordable Care Act and uncompensated care.
Bo views the work he does in the health care and real estate industries as a very interactive process where client input is crucial. He is astute at understanding market demands and assisting clients in creating value in their industry, whether their need is transactional, regulatory or litigation based. He knows what it takes to get the job done and takes steps to ensure it is completed satisfactorily, even if it means lobbying and drafting legislation.
Bo assists his real estate clients with issues such as property acquisitions and divestiture, title litigation, erroneous property descriptions, boundary disputes, liens validity and a multitude of other title-related matters.
It’s important to Bo that he and his clients establish mutual trust and communicate regularly so that their needs are met. The best part about being an attorney for Bo is the opportunity to help people solve problems — big and small — as quickly as possible while ensuring the legal bases are covered.

What Our Clients are Saying
“Johnstone Adams was a great help when it came to drawing up our family’s will and advanced directives prior to the birth of our first son. These are certainly things that no one wants to think about, but the process was easy. They were professional and knowledgeable, answering all of our questions along the way with compassion and sensitivity. Johnstone Adams responded quickly to any questions and was easy to get in touch with! We would highly recommend them for any legal work!!”
“My wife and I approached Johnstone Adams to help us make a better informed decision regarding her immigration. They have been a truly invaluable asset. They brought their knowledge, experience, confidence, and calm demeanor to the process, which put our minds at ease. The worry and anxiety that we were facing melted away, and we have been, literally, hand-held during this daunting process. We can’t thank or recommend Johnstone Adams enough and look forward to continuing to use their services in the future.”
“My husband and I were referred to Johnstone Adams in the spring of last year. We are working very closely with Jessica Welch and Greg Watts on an ongoing and unwanted family estate matter. Ms. Welch and Mr. Watts have been so professional and knowledgeable.
In addition, considering the nature of the suit, Jessica has provided my husband and I with a peace of mind we didn"t think was possible during this extremely stressful time of our lives. She is an amazing trial attorney. They have gone above and beyond. To sum it up, I have nothing but the utmost respect and appreciation for them. I would strongly reccomend either of them to my dearest friends and family members. I'm so thankful that we stumbled upon them. I'm actually going to miss Jessica Welch when this is all over.”
“I am currently using this law firm and they are informative, keeping me up to date with my case, and they return your calls/emails immediately. I am very satisfied.”
