Sometimes professionals are falsely charged with something they did not do. Sometimes the allegations do not seem credible or serious. Sometimes the professional engages in an out-of-character shoplifting incident or gets stopped driving home after having a few drinks. The police may be called to the home and charge the professional with domestic violence. If your regulatory or licensing board considers the offense an ethical violation or misconduct, your professional license could be in jeopardy. Allegations of wrongdoing can result in denials of professional licenses, suspensions, limitations on practice or other sanctions including remedial measures.

In many cases proper planning and clear communication can result in alternative outcomes salvaging the professional license. We work with law enforcement as well as at the licensing board investigators to develop an effective defense strategy to protect your professional license.
