For doctors, nurses, engineers, architects, and many other types of licensed professionals, the economic value of holding such a license is substantial. And just as important is the reputation value attached to the ability to practice as a professional in service to the citizens of Virginia.
When licensed professionals face the prospect of disciplinary action or having their license revoked, our team is there to defend them. In the event of actions such as complaints, disputes, or investigations, our experienced and proven team brings the firm’s extensive resources and expertise to bear in any issue our clients may face in front of state licensing and regulatory boards.
Unlike a lawsuit, licensing and regulatory actions have specific and distinct rules of practice that govern disputes. We protect our clients’ rights in administrative proceedings, a process that requires dedicated attention and ongoing communication from the first notice of a claim or investigation through the final appeal.
We are well-equipped to advise our clients on the best strategies for dealing with complaints and investigations. We protect our clients’ rights in administrative proceedings in matters before the many licensing boards of the Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation and the Virginia Department of Health Professions.
Our Professional Disciplinary and Licensing Disputes practice includes:
- Representation of physicians, nurses, dentists, mental health professionals, chiropractors, contractors, real estate professionals, engineers and others before their professional boards administered by the Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation (DPOR) and the Virginia Department of Health Professions (DHP)
- Representation of assisted living and long-term care providers, including licensing and litigation
