Chapman Law Group is dedicated to the defense of all healthcare professionals: Doctors, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Nurses, Medical Assistants, etc. We are the voice of the defense industry, representing the interests of healthcare providers accused of medical malpractice, civil rights violations (42 § USC 1983), administrative hearings and medical licensing matters.
Chapman Law Group appreciates the hard work and selfless sacrifices in being a professional medical provider. We fight aggressively to protect the reputation, assets and careers of our clients, and help alleviate the stress involved in defending medical licensing claims that are often unfounded.
The Administrative Complaint process starts with the filing of a complaint by a former patient, colleague or other interested person with the state licensing agency. The agency assigns an investigator. The investigator usually has nothing more than the complaint to go on. He/she will call or write attempting to set up a meeting. Caution, before you meet with anyone, consult a medical license attorney at Chapman Law Group for proper legal representation. There is often a very short time frame for the healthcare professional to obtain legal counsel to evaluate the issues before the investigator seeks authority to file a complaint or an administrative hearing is scheduled. Many healthcare professionals attempt to resolve medical licensing issues on their own. While there may be no validity to the complaint, the risk of potential sanctions far outweighs the cost of hiring an attorney. Often an experienced attorney can help achieve a dismissal or greatly reduce sanctions.
If you have received a letter from the Michigan or Florida licensing Board, or are aware of an investigation into your conduct, we urge you to call us immediately. We can help you determine the best course of action and, if necessary, represent you before the medical licensing board or administrative hearing.
