All licensed professionals fall prey to a disgruntled client or patient filing a complaint against them with their licensing board. Oftentimes, these complaints are meritless. However, sometimes mistakes have been made that give rise to possible ethical violations or violations of the terms of a professional’s license. Regardless of the motive or the reality of the complaint, each licensing Board takes all complaints very seriously, as they should. As professionals, we play an important role in the lives of those who trust us to help them. We owe a heightened duty to each person we help, professionally. Thus, it is important that we adhere to the licensing standards and requirements in everything that we do.
Even the best, most ethical and skilled professionals make mistakes. Whether it be due to addiction, substance abuse, mental health issues, financial difficulties, when a professional falls below the standards required of him or her, the repercussions can be career ending if not handled appropriately from the start. Do not try to represent yourself. You need a strong, respected and experienced attorney familiar with your licensing Board and their rules in order to minimize then negative impact on your chosen profession. Do not be embarrassed, at Naros Law, we do not judge, we recognize that everyone can make a mistake, and we work with you to support you to help make whatever changes are necessary to get you and your professional practice back on track.
