Our team of licensing lawyers are exceptionally experienced in representing licensed professionals during disciplinary actions and other matters before the licensing boards. Our licensing lawyers are dedicated to helping licensed professionals, including mental health providers, defend their license during disciplinary action.
Mental health providers may be subject to discipline for:
- Sexual misconduct;
- Impairment issues (including PRN, HPRP, and OPHP issues);
- Probation violation;
- Disciplinary action in another state;
- Being convicted or found guilty, or plea of nolo contendere to a crime related to practice;
- failure to report conviction;
- Influence on a patient for financial gain;
- Violations of boundary;
- Confidentiality violations;
- practice beyond the scope permitted by law or beyond level of competence;
- Incompetence or unprofessionalism;
- Failure to meet continuing education requirements;
- Advertising violations;
- Kickbacks; and
- Recordkeeping issues.
We assist mental health professionals with all disciplinary action, including investigations, administrative complaints, suspension and restriction orders, board hearings, administrative hearings, appeals, and probation modifications. We also assist providers who experience difficulty obtaining a license. Common reasons for licensure delays and denials include prior criminal history, prior disciplinary action, impairment issues, and open investigations.
Our lawyers understand the significant amount of time, money, and hard-work that mental health providers put into their education and training. We also understand the negative effects that a disciplinary action can have on a mental health professional’s career. Therefore, we fight hard to help mental health professionals protect their license and their career.
