When your license as a health care professional is suspended or revoked, you need experienced licensing counsel to guide you on the path to reinstatement. For more than 20 years, Aaron Kemp has been that guide for doctors, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, radiologists, and many others.
Aaron serves as chair for Chapman Law Group’s Professional Licensing & Regulatory Affairs practice. He is a health care attorney with more than a decade of experience in the defense of medical malpractice litigation, along with representing physicians in credentialing and licensing matters and counseling physician practice groups.
His practice includes providing risk management and compliance advice to individual physicians and practice groups, with an emphasis on chiropractors, psychiatrists and emergency department physicians. He has been privileged to serve as personal counsel to physicians and other health care professionals in medical malpractice matters concerning issues of premature settlements, excess verdict exposure and National Practitioner Data Bank (NPDB) report disputes. He focuses his practice on the defense of health care professionals in licensing investigations and complaint matters, and credentialing/peer review hearings.
“I am passionate about defending medical professionals in administrative matters involving complaints against their license to practice, seeking reinstatement of their licenses, peer review/corrective action hearings, and NPDB dispute resolutions,” Aaron says. “In such cases, these individuals who have dedicated their lives to the care of others need some who will speak for and take care of them.”
