DEA Immediate Suspensions Lawyers

The DEA is the primary federal agency tasked with enforcing the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) and other laws related to the use and abuse of controlled substances. The CSA establishes the legal classification of all drugs, outlines the restrictions on how those drugs can be manufactured, possessed, and dispensed, and establishes the penalties for violating those restrictions.

The DEA itself was established under the CSA in 1973. The agency is responsible for investigating drug-related crimes, coordinating law enforcement efforts, conducting drug research, and working with the public and other agencies to prevent drug abuse.

The DEA does not have authority over the medical profession. The medical profession is overseen by state medical boards and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) — not the DEA. However, the DEA does have authority over the distribution of controlled substances, so any physician who prescribes controlled substances or a pharmacy that dispenses controlled substances can be subject to DEA investigation and enforcement action.

The DEA has a lot of power. If the DEA believes that someone has violated the CSA or any other laws related to controlled substances, the agency can take steps to suspend or revoke the individual’s or the business’s DEA registration. That registration is required for anyone who wants to manufacture, possess, distribute, or dispense controlled substances.

The DEA can also seek to have a court issue an injunction against anyone who is violating the CSA, which would block the individual or business from continuing to manufacture, possess, distribute, or dispense controlled substances.

The DEA can also refer cases to the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) for prosecution. These cases can lead to fines and prison sentences in addition to the revocation or suspension of the individual’s or business’s DEA registration.

The DEA’s Suspension and Revocation Process

The DEA does have a formal process for revoking and suspending DEA registrations. That process is set forth in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and begins with a DEA investigation.

During the investigation, the DEA will gather evidence, question witnesses, and ultimately decide whether there is enough evidence to support the revocation or suspension of the individual’s or business’s DEA registration. If the DEA decides to move forward, the agency will notify the individual or business of the intended revocation or suspension and give the individual or business a chance to respond.

The individual or business will be given a revocation or suspension hearing before an Administrative Law Judge, who will hear both sides of the story, review the evidence and the law, and issue a formal decision. If the DEA decides to move forward after the hearing, the individual or business will be given another chance to respond in writing.

The DEA can then issue a final order revoking or suspending the individual’s or business’s DEA registration. The individual or business can then appeal the DEA’s decision to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

The DEA’s Process Is Complicated

The DEA’s process for revoking and suspending DEA registrations is complicated. It involves multiple steps, technical rules and deadlines, and a wide range of potential outcomes. Any healthcare provider who is under investigation by the DEA or who is facing a DEE revocation or suspension should seek the help of an experienced healthcare attorney.

How Can the DEA Suspend or Revoke My Registration?

The DEA can take steps to suspend or revoke an individual’s or business’s DEA registration for a wide range of reasons. For example, the DEA may take action if it believes that the individual or business has failed to comply with state laws governing the prescribing, dispensing, and distribution of controlled substances, or if it believes that the individual or business has been convicted of a felony related to controlled substances.

What is a Notice of Proposed Suspension?

A Notice of Proposed Suspension is a notice that advises you that the DEA is considering suspending or revoking your registration as a federal controlled substance registrant or denying your application for registration. You are required to submit a written response within 30 days.

If I get a Notice of Proposed Suspension, what should I do?

If you receive a Notice of Proposed Suspension, it is important to respond in writing within the required 30 days and you should contact an experienced Controlled Substances Attorney. The response will be the only opportunity you will have to convince the DEA to not suspend your registration.

Can I appeal a Notice of Proposed Suspension?

Yes. An appeal can be filed with the DEA Administrator, who will review the DEA’s decision and either affirm, reverse, or modify it.

Can I lose my registration if I am convicted of a crime?

Yes, you can lose your registration if you are convicted of a crime. After you are convicted of a crime, you must notify the DEA of the conviction, and the DEA will determine if the crime is a controlled substance offense. The DEA may suspend or revoke your registration based on your conviction even if the crime is not a controlled substance offense.

How long will it take the DEA to investigate me?

The time it takes the DEA to investigate you will depend on the nature of the investigation and the amount of evidence the DEA has against you. The DEA has 24 months from when the illegal act occurred to bring an enforcement action against you.

What should I do if I am under investigation by the DEA?

If you are under investigation by the DEA, you must retain an experienced controlled substances attorney. If you do not have an attorney, the DEA will try to use your statements against you to build a case against you.

Can I get my registration back if I am suspended?

Yes, you can get your registration back if you are suspended. The DEA may reinstated your registration if it finds that the “imminent danger” to the public health and safety has been removed.

What if I am not a doctor, but I am still being investigated?

If you are not a doctor, you are still subject to the same rules and regulations as a doctor. This means that you can still be prosecuted for controlled substance offenses, and the DEA can still suspend or revoke your registration.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
