When charged with a crime, physicians, nurses and other licensed medical professionals must defend their actions twice: in criminal court and before the Michigan and/or Florida licensing board for their respective profession. That’s because almost all criminal issues directly affect their professional license, even if the charge is unrelated to their practice.
Unfortunately, criminal defense attorneys who do not practice administrative law often plead criminal cases in such a way that makes it difficult to avoid licensing actions. They are not aware of the intricacies of the Public Health Code and the requirements imposed on licensed health professionals.
But we at Chapman Law Group are different.
Because our attorneys handle both criminal and administrative law in the health care field, we know the collateral consequences a criminal conviction brings. From the onset of your representation, we consider all licensing ramifications when developing a strategy, and we will represent you aggressively during criminal and administrative proceedings.
