Professional License Defense

Professional License Defense and Investigations

Professional License DefenseWhether you are a doctor, nurse, psychologist, social worker, marriage and family therapist, licensed professional counselor or another professional licensed by the State of New Jersey, your license is the source of your livelihood and professional identity.

On any given day your license can be placed at risk by an unhappy client, a disgruntled former employee, a professional competitor or others. All it takes is their letter or phone call to the appropriate licensing board within the New Jersey Department of Consumer Affairs or your professional credentialing organization.

Typically you will receive a letter or phone call advising you of the complaint or investigation and asking for your response. How you respond to that call or letter can make a substantial difference in the outcome of the matter. Having an experienced professional licensing board attorney to turn to for advice, guidance and action can save your career.

  • Reviewing the complaint against you and providing an appropriate, detailed response;
  • Representing and defending you during investigations, appearances, and hearings;
  • Appeals of licensing board decisions;
  • Consulting with you regarding compliance obligations and reinstatement;
