Licensing and Disciplinary Issues

We know that nothing is more important to a professional’s career than his or her license to practice. Over the last decade, the total number of complaints against professionals has increased at an astounding rate, with a parallel increase in the number of investigations and prejudicial actions against professionals.

Our mission is to represent our clients through the difficult process of licensing and disciplinary proceedings, to protect their reputation, business, license, and livelihood. The attorneys in our Professional Liability Practice Group appear regularly before State professional licensing boards, including The Office of Professional Misconduct (OPMC), as well as before hospital committees, Medicare and Medicaid boards, peer review committees and organizations, and other governmental agencies.
