Defending Your License to Practice
Licensed professionals such as lawyers, law enforcement officials, doctors, nurses and psychologists have the benefits of a credential that reassures the public that they are qualified experts. But, when professionals are accused of ethical violations, drug or alcohol abuse, mental illness, instability, misconduct or incompetence, the benefits of licensing can be suspended or revoked.
If you are a licensed professional facing discipline, you are entitled to a panel hearing in front of your licensing board, and you have a right to a contested case hearing before an administrative law judge (ALJ).
Professional discipline cases often turn on the testimony of expert witnesses. We have a network of reputable experts — including forensic psychologists, chemical and alcohol evaluators, law enforcement officers and professionals from all licensed fields — who regularly testify on behalf of our clients.
We have the depth of experience and breadth of knowledge to offer innovative, zealous representation to clients facing professional discipline. Contact us to discuss how our attorneys can help you. You can call us at (952) 851-9500.
Handling Legal Claims and Company Discipline
In addition to the licensing consequences of alleged misconduct, there are many other common legal issues professionals face.
If you believe you have a legal claim against an employer or client, if an employee or client is suing you, or if there is a disciplinary proceeding against you for suspension or termination within your company, we will provide you with the fullest attention and advocacy.
