Administrative Law For Health Care Professionals Attorneys
Healthcare professionals face some of the most stringent, complex and sometimes unfair laws and regulations of any California licensee. Many state Boards are legally obligated to “protect the public,” but instead often seek to punish their licensees. Our attorneys are very conscious of this fact and relish fighting back on behalf of our healthcare licensee clients to make sure that protecting the public does not mean making an example of our clients and their professional licenses.
Due to the current “opioid crisis,” as it is often called, the intensity of the various healthcare boards’ investigations has definitely increased. These investigations often lead to the filing of a formal “Accusation” against a healthcare licensee, with a real potential for loss of the license by revocation. Highly experienced and zealous legal counsel is therefore crucial if a licensee is to have a realistic chance of keeping his or her license. These are not “do it yourself” cases.
The majority of our practice at Brown & Brown involves a combined 60+ year experience in defending healthcare licensees before the various California state boards.
A partial list of these boards includes:
In addition to the above Boards and Bureaus, we routinely defend holders of non-healthcare licenses. Click here to learn more.
What our clients most often tell us after we have saved their professional license(s) is that they’re shocked at how aggressive these Boards can be in seeking revocation of a license. We also most often hear that any settlement offer presented to the licensee before retaining counsel was claimed to be a “best and final offer,” which is usually not the case.
Having a seasoned, highly-experienced attorney on your side in such a situation means that the very best outcome will be aggressively pursued on your behalf and every detail of that outcome will be shared freely and openly with you as our client. We pride ourselves on providing excellent communication and updates to our clients, as we understand how stressful this experience can be for a licensee facing discipline.
Many of our clients retain us for license application problems, as well. Most often, this involves concerns or problems with receiving a license due to past criminal records, foreign education issues, etc. We have dealt with these issues successfully many times on behalf of our clients and will do so for you, too.
