Many healthcare professionals spend years in school to achieve their dream of practicing medicine. There are many requirements that must be fulfilled before a person can obtain a medical license. As a healthcare professional, there’s a chance that the fruits of your labor will be jeopardized by a claim of misconduct. This is something that occurs with a high level of frequency. If you have been accused of misconduct by a licensing board, we’re here to help you understand and deal with this challenging situation.

Some of the healthcare professionals that are subject to an investigation surrounding misconduct include physicians, physician assistants, nurses, mental health professionals, physical therapists, pharmacists, dentists, chiropractors, to name a few. An investigation might involve the New York State Education Department, Office of Professional Discipline (OPD), Office of Professional Medical Conduct (OPMC), the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), or medical boards.

With expertise in handling state and federal cases involving medical professionals that have been accused of misconduct, we understand the importance of resolving the matter and getting your career back on track. We are keenly familiar with cases involving private insurance fraud, Medicaid fraud, Medicare fraud, no fault fraud, patient abuse, and drunk driving, among others. There are a long list of potential misconduct claims and our team is exceptionally skilled at representing medical professionals facing a criminal case that can have devastating consequences.

We can guide you through the process of addressing a misconduct accusation in a way that yields the best possible outcome based on your unique situation. Even if you are someone that works hard and maintains a commitment to integrity at all times, there is still a chance that a misconduct claim will arise. There have been many unfortunate instances when an unmerited accusation was made against a medical professional. If this happens to you, it is imperative that you obtain counsel to protect your interests.

New York Nursing License Defense Lawyer

Working as a nurse is difficult, especially given the number of hours that many nurses work on a regular basis. Despite a tremendous sacrifice, there is a significant risk of facing a professional misconduct allegation if you’re a nurse. This can drastically change your life by impacting your livelihood. Among many potential outcomes is the possibility of a guilty finding by a jury or a guilty plea.

New York Medical License Defense Lawyers

We have represented medical professionals facing claims of professional misconduct that have been investigated by the OPMC. If you are currently experiencing this situation, it’s important to understand that the risk of discipline is significant and having a lawyer to work on your behalf is critical.

Protecting Your License

The most important objective when charged with professional misconduct is avoiding a conviction. There’s a chance that an experienced lawyer can create a strategy that involves negotiating a favorable plea. Every case is different and we can help you determine the best way to proceed to protect your interest.

Accusation of Provider Medicaid Fraud

If you provide services that are paid for by Medicaid, you can be seriously impacted if you are accused of Medicaid fraud and that accusation results in a conviction. Generally, you will no longer qualify to serve as a Medicaid provider.

Addressing Felony Charges

When a healthcare professional is charged with a felony, the outcome is much greater than it would be for a misdemeanor crime. However, there is a chance for a conditional plea, but it must be negotiated. An experienced lawyer can handle negotiations on your behalf. You may also be able to re-plead to a lesser included offense or a non-criminal offense. These are considerations that can result in the removal of the conviction.

Minimizing Damages

A possible solution when accused of professional misconduct as a healthcare provider is negotiating allocution. This is a negotiation that occurs with the prosecutor and it’s best to have an experienced lawyer on your side.

If you are a licensed medical professional that has been accused of misconduct, we’re here to help you navigate through this challenging situation. Call us to discuss the nature of your case.
