Spodek Law Group: Dedicated Legal Defense for DEA Disciplinary Actions

If you’re facing a DEA investigation or enforcement action related to your medical practice, you’re in a tough spot. The DEA is a powerful federal entity that can move fast and aggressively against you – even if you’ve done nothing wrong. DEA disciplinary actions can be harsh and long-lasting, with any punishment potentially ending your career. Unfortunately, because of the DEA’s critical role, they get a lot of deference. But there is hope.

The Best Defense: Spodek Law Group and Attorney Todd Spodek

At Spodek Law Group, we’re dedicated to providing top-rated legal defense for anyone facing DEA disciplinary actions. Our experienced and professional team, led by renowned federal criminal defense authority, Todd Spodek, has successfully handled some of the toughest cases nationwide.

The DEA: Going After Everyone

The DEA doesn’t just go after street drug dealers, they go after anyone suspected of unlawful prescription activity. Doctors, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers are all fair game. The agency is concerned with infractions under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), which can lead to your DEA certificate of registration being suspended or permanently revoked. Your DEA registration is required for prescribing or dispensing medication in the USA. It’s nearly impossible to re-register or reapply, and revocation can literally mean the end of your career.

DEA Disciplinary Actions: Potentially Horrendous

DEA disciplinary actions can be incredibly damaging to your professional career, including potential federal felony charges and civil penalties. The mere thought of the DEA showing up is enough to make doctors nervous. But it’s important to remember that the best response when the agency shows up is to not simply obey or listen to them. Instead, contact an experienced and top-rated DEA defense lawyer to create a strong legal strategy.

Preparing for a Potential DEA Disciplinary Action

DEA inspections are routine, but it’s crucial to stay prepared. The DEA is looking for irregularities that can be used against you, and they can arrive at any time. It’s important to maintain thorough documentation and ensure that every patient/doctor interaction is well documented. If you’ve been contacted by a DEA agent, speak to an experienced DEA defense attorney right away. It’s typical for routine DEA audits to lead to larger, more complicated investigations – even if you’ve done nothing wrong.

FAQs: DEA Disciplinary Actions

What are the types of actions the DEA can take?

The DEA has a number of different enforcement actions at their disposal, including monetary fines, audits/inspections, criminal charges, imprisonment, probation, requesting the surrender of your DEA Certificate of Registration, suspending/revoking your DEA registration, and suspending your medical license.

How should you prepare for a potential DEA Disciplinary Action?

Maintain thorough documentation, ensure that every patient/doctor interaction is well documented, and speak to an experienced DEA defense attorney right away if you’ve been contacted by a DEA agent.

When will the DEA take enforcement actions?

The DEA has jurisdiction over issues relating to controlled substances, such as conspiracy to dispense, distribute, or possess; dispensing drugs without proper labels; drug diversion; drug trafficking; paperwork and filing violations; prescribing medications to drug-addicted medical patients; prescribing medications outside of medically accepted norms; and violations of the CSA.
