Effective Representation in Professional Discipline Cases

I represent clients in disciplinary hearings involving professional misconduct or unprofessional conduct, including:

  • Doctors, dentists, nurses and other health care professionals
  • Lawyers
  • Stockbrokers
  • Architects and engineers
  • Any other licensed or certified professional

Severe Potential Consequences

Even a first-time drunk driving charge, for example, can place your professional license in jeopardy. Your license could be revoked; you could be fined or disciplined in other ways. Any mark on your professional record can negatively affect your ability to work and earn a living. Students are also at risk. With a criminal conviction on their record, students may not be accepted into a professional training program or be allowed to complete such training.

I treat professional discipline hearings as seriously as a criminal charge.

I understand the rules of conduct expected for members of professional organizations, including the College of Physicians and Surgeons, College of Teachers, College of Dentists and other professional governing organizations. I have successfully represented many clients both in court and in professional disciplinary hearings.
