DEA Suspensions and Revocations Lawyers

Federal agencies usually cannot just intimidate individuals and businesses into relinquishing their rights or licenses. These may only be stripped through formal proceedings. Our nation does not make some special exception for suspensions and revocations by the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Still, overzealous DEA agents may seek to hastily retract your rights and privileges. They believe they must aggressively perform their duties, but that stance often makes them pursue healthcare providers too vigorously.

Without your DEA registration, your career will be irrevocably damaged. Fortunately, you don’t have to simply surrender it at the DEA’s demand. With the right legal team, suspension or revocation attempts can often be defeated.

It is almost never wise to voluntarily surrender your DEA registration. Your refusal to surrender forces the DEA’s hand. Normally, they will decide to formally pursue suspension or revocation, so you need our former federal prosecutors on your side throughout the process.

Our team will expertly negotiate a resolution that can keep you in good standing in your career. Expect us to dedicate ourselves toward helping you maintain your licenses and DEA registration.

Doctors, medical professionals, practices and other healthcare entities wisely look to our firm. We fight relentlessly for our clients, so put us in your corner when your career is under attack.

Reasons the DEA Can Suspend or Revoke Registrations

Despite its substantial power, the DEA must provide specific reasons for removing your registration. Typical reasons include

  • Falsified registration information
  • Official exclusion from Medicare or Medicaid
  • Felony conviction involving a controlled substance
  • Denial, revocation or suspension of a license in any state
  • Engagement in behavior against the public interest
  • Immediate danger to public health
  • Voluntary surrender of your registration

The DEA cannot take your registration due to an allegation alone. They must follow a formal adjudication process. Excluding cases concerning the public’s imminent danger, you’ll be allowed to continue practicing throughout that process.

How to Respond to a DEA Show Cause Order

To indicate its intent to suspend or revoke your registration, the DEA must formally serve you with an Order to Show Cause. This legal document gives you the DEA’s summary of the facts and relevant law regarding your situation.

You are required to respond to this order, and your response can significantly impact your career’s future. Enhance your potential for an optimal result by hiring experts who have worked the other side of these cases.

Importantly, if an Order to Show Cause comes with an Immediate Suspension Order, you must comply.

What to Expect from a DEA Show Cause Hearing

After you receive your Order to Show Cause, you will have 30 days to request a hearing. Your request must be effective, so leave it to professionals.

At your hearing, each side presents its case before an administrative law judge. This federal judge, the ALJ, presides over arguments, evidence and witnesses.

The DEA must demonstrate the need for suspension or revocation of your registration via a preponderance of the evidence. Importantly, this legal standard is lower than the one used in criminal court. The DEA must simply show that it’s likelier than not that a violation happened.

If the ALJ finds in your favor, the case ends. Otherwise, the ALJ may formally recommend your registration’s suspension or removal.

Next, the recommendation will proceed to a DEA administrator. They will weigh it against objections or exceptions submitted by your defense team or the DEA.

These factors may impact the administrator’s decision:

  • Your compliance with all applicable laws
  • Any previous convictions involving controlled substances
  • Your effectiveness at keeping controlled substances from being trafficked
  • Your professional experience with controlled substances
  • Anything regarding your actions’ impact on public health or safety

After full consideration, the DEA administrator will rule via a written decision that can modify, reject or accept the recommendation from the ALJ.

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.
