Actions Against Your Professional License

No matter where you are at in the process of obtaining or maintaining your professional license, you could be subject to an adverse action. Your application for licensure could be denied for reasons including:

  • You do not meet current requirements for licensure.
  • Licensing requirements changed during the course of your education.
  • You require a rule waiver or variance.
  • You practiced or conducted business in Georgia prior to licensure.
  • Your license has been denied and you must appeal.

We can help you fight these issues and obtain your license.

Once licensed, you may later face disciplinary action or become the subject of a criminal complaint. As a specialist, you will need a lawyer who understands the complexities of your professional field and all the legal matters related to professional licensing.

We will work with the investigatory board on your behalf and concentrate on your defense while you concentrate on your livelihood. We've worked with a range of licensed professionals for more than 20 years, including, among others:

  • Physicians and physician assistants
  • Mental health professionals
  • Dentists
  • Veterinarians
  • Physical therapists
  • Nurses and nurse practitioners
  • Chiropractors

Your Role In An Investigation

Licensing boards and administrative agencies have unique rules and procedures, making it imperative that you choose an attorney experienced in license defense. Seemingly simple cases can become complex, and you will need an attorney who is familiar with the entire process, including interviews, hearings, proposed settlements by consent order and appeals.

While we want you to focus on your specialty while we represent your legal interests, things you can do to help get the best possible result include:

  • Responding to the complaint: We can help develop your defense and present evidence to the investigator or licensing board to minimize or negate the claims set forth in the complaint.
  • Cooperation: It is important to cooperate with an investigation, but remain defensive. We can help you walk the line between cooperating and providing evidence that could be used against you.
  • Crafting a defense: We will help craft a letter to the licensing board addressing its concerns. This may resolve the case, plant the seed for future settlement or lead to a negotiated agreement.

Our goal is to help you solve your issues as quickly and efficiently as possible, so you can continue practicing your profession and maintain your livelihood.
