State licensing boards are responsible for issuing and regulating medical, osteopathic, nursing, podiatric, and other professional licenses. With this authority comes the right to pursue disciplinary action and—in extreme cases—revoke such licenses. Allegations of misconduct or malpractice can put a medical license at risk or jeopardize one’s reputation and career.
We represent and advise healthcare professionals facing the full range of administrative actions and legal allegations. We ensure that any investigations or disputes are handled fairly, that rights are preserved, and that the case is presented in the most favorable light.
Among other engagements, our lawyers have:
- Represented physicians in disputes regarding their board certifications and certification eligibility
- Represented physicians, physician’s assistants, nurses, podiatrists, and other providers in matters before the State Boards of Medicine, Osteopathy, Nursing, Podiatry, and other specialties
- Represented foreign medical graduates in disputes with the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG)
- Prevented the termination of hospital physician staff, with no negative updates or consequences with respect to their National Practitioner Databank records
