Areas Of Concentration
For any professional, a malpractice or professional liability claim can take an immeasurable toll on your career and personal life. When your licensure status is called into question by a board proceeding or even a lawsuit, the professional and personal stakes do not get higher - your very livelihood is at risk.
All professional organizations must uphold the standards that define the practice. So when allegations of professional misconduct arise, practitioners must be vigilant in the protection of their credibility. Even the accusation of malpractice can be damaging to the reputation of your practice. At that point, it’s time to turn to legal counsel that can guide you through the process, working to minimize the risk of sanctions and fighting to protect your ability to practice your chosen profession.
