Types of Administrative Disciplinary Proceedings

Many different disciplinary proceedings can affect a professional license.

Examples include:

  • Ethics violations
  • Sexual misconduct
  • Standard of care issues
  • Fraud/misrepresentation
  • Substance abuse/impairment

Disciplinary proceedings take place before a licensing authority, where you are required to present your case. The process is similar to what you would see in a courtroom. You must present evidence that challenges or debunks the claims against you.

Our team is here to help you collect this evidence. We can investigate your case and help you build a strong defense. By collecting documents and interviewing witnesses, we may be able to protect your right to work in your chosen field. 

Not all boards will allow you to have representation in your hearing. If this is the case for you, don’t be disheartened. We can still help. Our office understands the various administrative disciplinary proceedings and the nuances of each case. We can prepare you to represent yourself confidently and accurately.
