DEA license defense lawyers in Chicago

When the DEA Comes Knocking, You Need an Experienced Lawyer in Your Corner

Hey there, sorry to hear you’re dealing with a DEA investigation. I know that can be scary and disruptive to your life and business. As your attorney, let me walk you through what’s happening and how we can build the strongest defense.

First off, don’t panic. A DEA audit or investigation doesn’t necessarily mean your medical or pharmacy license is at stake. The agents may just have some routine questions or need to verify your record keeping complies with regulations. However, you also need to be prepared in case the investigation takes a serious turn. That’s where I come in.

How My Firm Approaches DEA License Defense

My firm has extensive experience defending Chicago professionals like yourself against DEA allegations related to controlled substance licenses. I personally have represented physicians, pharmacists, veterinarians, and other practitioners against accusations of regulatory violations, diversion, improper prescribing, and more.

Here’s my approach: I’ll interview you in depth to understand your specific situation. Then I’ll request records from the DEA and dig into their case against you. My goal is to pick apart any weak spots in their position and build a compelling defense around facts and context.

For example, let’s say the DEA thinks you’re overprescribing opioids. I’ll compile data on your patient population and prescribing history. If the numbers are in line with medical standards for patients with chronic pain, that’s strong evidence against the DEA’s accusations. See what I mean? An experienced defense lawyer knows where to look for flaws in the government’s position.

Why My Firm Is Uniquely Suited to Defend Your License

There are a few key reasons I’m confident my firm is the right choice to defend your DEA registration:

We have an excellent track record in these cases. I can point to many examples of past clients whose licenses we successfully defended against threat of revocation.

We understand the pharmaceutical industry. Members of my team have worked in healthcare and understand the operational side of pharmacies and medical practices.

We know federal law and how to navigate DEA regulations and proceedings. Good lawyers make bad law – and you want the best lawyer between you and losing your livelihood.

We have great working relationships with the local DEA. While each case is handled professionally and ethically, it doesn’t hurt that we know the agents personally and understand how they operate.

We won’t shy away from trial if necessary. My firm has litigators experienced in federal courts and administrative proceedings. We won’t hesitate to take your case to trial for the strongest defense possible if that’s what it takes..

The Next Steps in Building Your DEA Defense

I don’t want to sugarcoat this – defending your DEA registration is serious business. But you don’t have to tackle it alone. I’m here to field your questions, strategize your defense, and represent your best interests every step of the way.

Here are the initial actions I recommend we take:

– Meet in person so I can learn the details of your situation firsthand.

– Send a letter to the DEA requesting more information about the investigation and allegations.

– Begin gathering relevant records, documentation, and data to refute any accusations.

– Discuss options for negotiating with the DEA or even avoiding formal legal proceedings if possible.

You have rights in this situation that my firm will protect. The government still has to prove their case against you, or else allow you to continue practicing without restriction. With an experienced legal defense, I’m confident we can get the best possible outcome for your future livelihood. Let’s get started.
