LICENSE BOARD ACCUSATION DEFENSE
Our legal team includes appellate and writ attorneys (Caramagno), board hearing and trial attorneys (Horowitz) and licensed medical professionals (Yates). This team has consistently protected licenses of medical doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, and many others. Professional license defense is a highly nuanced and complex area. The timing of defenses, procedural oddities and peculiar (and perhaps unconstitutional) burdens of proof make professional license defense a minefield for the inexperienced attorney.
Currently, most board actions have a criminal component. Medical doctors are frequently accused of billing fraud (upcoding, wrong diagnosis) and self referral frauds. Chiropractors often face scope of practice and “corporate medicine” accusations. Other medical professionals often face charges relating to drug or alcohol use. Two of our attorneys are state certified criminal defense specialists. If medical issues are involved, we have on staff a licensed chiropractor (Michael Yates) and we work with other highly qualified medical professionals in other cases.
Our team includes an attorney fluent in Russian and we work with attorneys fluent in Spanish and Arabic as well.
