An Advocate on Your Side.
Even the most competent, experienced, and caring professional can be subject to complaints brought by disgruntled patients, clients, former employees, or other professionals.
Complaints are reported to a professional’s licensing board, each with its unique process for investigating and pursuing these complaints. While particulars vary, there are generally three stages: investigation, formal accusation, decision.
Most professionals are embarrassed by these complaints. They don’t tell anyone, choosing to face the complaint process on their own. This is a huge mistake. Having an experienced professional licensure attorney will help you navigate this complicated process and give you the best chance of avoiding sanctions like
- Censure or reprimand
- Suspension of license
- Loss of license
Even if the complaint is ultimately dismissed, if it’s reached the formal accusation stage, it becomes public and can negatively affect your practice, reputation, and professional relationships. A formal accusation may also affect your ability to obtain or maintain your professional insurance.
With an attorney, many complaints can be resolved before a formal accusation is filed.
