We appreciate doctors and health workers for all the work that they do. It takes years of sacrifice and effort to earn a medical license and maintain it. Being a doctor or surgeon comes with a lot of responsibilities, all held together on one piece of paper: a medical license. The piece of paper gives doctors the ability to practice medicine, seek employment, and operate medical practices. Nonetheless, one tiny mistake could threaten the validity of your medical license. But don’t worry: Our NY medical license defense lawyers are here to help you maneuver the law and protect your license’s status.
Below are circumstances that would push you to seek the help of a medical license defense lawyer.

Drug diversion allegations
If you find yourself amidst allegations that claim you stole narcotics from your workstation or employer, prescribed drugs for personal use, or wrote prescriptions that weren’t necessary, you might need to lawyer up. Regardless of whether the allegations are true or not, the suspicion revolving around drug diversion cases can threaten your medical license’s validity. Other minor claims that may put your license at harm’s way include failure to dispose of narcotics appropriately, mixing up patient files and errors when using the pyxis system.

Driving Under Influence charges
DUI charges are harmful to any professional’s conduct. It can be career-ending if not handled gently. Unfortunately, too many medical professionals lose their licenses due to DUI charges. An experienced medical license defense attorney will help you retain your driving license, represent you in court, help tone down the charges, and increase your chances of retaining your medical license.

Are you facing a suspension that you don’t really understand its terms and conditions? We understand that the law language isn’t easy to comprehend for the average individual. Your medical license could be suspended for various reasons, including failure to finish CMEs, probation violations, testing positive for drug use, inability to pay student loans, and fraud allegations. When you are issued a suspension lawyer, you will need the professional help of a license defense lawyer to help you understand what you are facing, represent you in court, and guide you through the journey.

Criminal convictions
Anyone can face a criminal conviction, but it comes with hard consequences for doctors. Our NY medical license defense lawyers will help you overrule a criminal history barring you from obtaining your medical license. We also have a great track record in assisting physicians who go through disciplinary actions for failing to report criminal convictions on time.

How will our attorneys help you defend your medical license?
Help you understand your case
Many doctors and physicians make the mistake of interpreting their cases wrong, which often turn into expensive mistakes. Our medical license defense lawyers will help you have a clear understanding of the charges threatening your license and guide you accordingly.

Conducting investigations
A significant percentage of allegations threatening physicians’ licenses normally require in-depth and lengthy investigations that could reveal evidence crucial in defending the medical license. Our attorneys are highly skilled in conducting investigations that may strengthen your case and prove your innocence amidst the accusations.

Legal representation
Should your case fail to resolve and end up in court, you will need legal representation during trials and proceedings. This allows you to keep up with the process and avoid making mistakes. Moreover, during mediation with your employer, your lawyer may provide solid legal advice and representation to win you a fair deal and protect your medical license.

Have a friend during these trying times
When faced with the reality that you could lose your medical license, it’s a challenging time for any doctor. You will need a friend to open up to and offer you good advice. A NY medical license defense lawyer will listen to your side of the story, assess the possible outcomes of your case, offer a confidential environment, explain the negative externalities of the case, and offer you comfort. Your lawyer will provide you comfort based on the success of previous cases.

Are you facing dark days with your medical license being on the line? You don’t have to go through this journey alone. Call us now to book an appointment with one of our top medical license defense lawyers. We will help you protect your license and future to the best of our ability.
