Professional Regulation & Licensure
Providing experienced counsel that recognizes and protects your most valuable asset, your license to practice.
An untarnished license to practice is a professional's most valuable asset. When that license is at risk of being suspended, revoked, or placed on probationary status, it is essential to have experienced counsel representing you before the regulatory agency. No matter how slight, regulatory violations and discipline can result in severe penalties, including revocation or suspension of your license, probation, reprimands, monetary fines, and censure in the form of inclusion on national databases for regulatory discipline.
Methods of practice before the Department of Professional Regulation differ substantially from trial practice in the circuit courts. Once the Department files a complaint, it will usually schedule the matter for an informal conference to determine whether the case can be settled without recourse to a full administrative hearing. Expertise in preparing professionals for these informal conferences is essential as this conference offers the best opportunity to resolve the case quickly and inexpensively.
