Defense of Licensed Professionals
Our attorneys represent licensed professionals in administrative and judicial proceedings. Clients include architects, attorneys, insurance adjusters, engineers, physicians, nurses, and others.
Health Care Professionals
Our firm successfully represents physicians against charges brought by the New York State Department of Health Office of Professional Medical Conduct, and other health care professionals charged by the New York State Education Department Office of Professional Discipline.
These engagements present questions of professional conduct, licensing and discipline, credentialing, malpractice liability, National Practitioner Data Bank reporting, Medicare and Medicaid exclusion, and disputes regarding corporate, contractual, and employment relationships.
The stakes are high in this area of our practice because our client's livelihood can be placed in jeopardy. Addressing matters quickly and effectively often allows us to close investigations before charges are filed. It also helps avoid a lengthy investigation and prosecution which can have damaging consequences on our client's reputation.
We bring clients our experience working with the Committee on Physician Health, the Professional Assistance Program, and other entities assisting professionals suffering from some form of impairment.
We successfully defend professionals against a wide variety of misconduct charges, including claims of:
criminal convictions unrelated to the practice of medicine
professional misconduct in other jurisdictions
We have been called upon to defend attorneys against a variety of professional conduct and malpractice charges, including claims of incompetence, conflict of interest, and fraud.
