new york medical license defense lawyers

Hiring A New York Medical License Defense Lawyer You Can Trust As a medical professional, you worked hard to earn your degree and license. Unfortunately, your professional reputation, career and livelihood are in the hands of the licensing board and the patients that you treat. If you get accused of misconduct, you could end up risking the loss of your license and your income. If you find yourself in this position, it is important to hire the help of a New York medical license defense lawyer you can trust.

Our defense attorneys can help you save your license just like we have helped many others when they were in the same position. We have years of experience defending nurses, doctors, physical therapists, dentists, pharmacists, chiropractors, mental health professionals and other medical professionals throughout different stages of investigations and disciplinary litigation before the licensing board and other departments.

Whether you are facing the Office of Professional Discipline, Medical Board, Office of Professional Medical License Conduct, the education department of New York state or the DEA, we have what it takes to be by your side and get you through it. If you have been accused of criminal misconduct in state or federal courts, we have what it takes to ensure you have a good chance of keeping your career and license.

Many of the cases we have handled include Medicare and Medicaid fraud, no-fault fraud, diversion of drugs, private insurance fraud, patient abuse, drunk driving, sex crimes and any other criminal offenses that involve healthcare professionals. It does not matter if you’re being charged with a crime, misconduct by your employer or are being investigated by the healthcare medical licensing board, there is no substitute for having a reputable, professional and trusting attorney by your side. We will be able to help you find a way out of your predicament.

Consequences Of Criminal Conviction

In New York, medical professionals convicted of crimes can result in professional discipline and criminal charges. A conviction means that you are either found guilty by a jury or you plead guilty to a crime. Either way, the result will be the same. In New York, you will be charged with either a misdemeanor or a felony.

How To Protect Your Professional Medical License If Charged With Crime

As a medical professional, the best outcome you can hope for is to avoid a conviction. Oftentimes, this will mean having to go to trial and getting an acquittal. You cannot depend on this for every case, but if you hire a lawyer like us with good negotiation skills, you will have the best chance of a good outcome. If your case results in a plea deal, this will minimize your exposure to professional discipline.

What Can Be Done If I Am Charged With A Felony?

A felony conviction results in harsher disciplinary action by the state compared to misdemeanor convictions. In some cases, you will be able to negotiate a conditional plea so that you may re-plead to a lesser offense. If you can re-plead to a non-criminal offense, that would remove the prior conviction you received. If you are not able to re-plead your case and you have to be found guilty of a crime, the nature of the crime will also indicate what happens once your case is reviewed by OPD. For example, sexual misconduct will always result in license revocation. Other types of offenses may not lead to license revocation.

Healthcare Provider Accused Of Committing Medicaid Fraud

If you are a medical professional and are being accused of Medicaid fraud, you will be removed as a Medicaid provider. Going forward, you will not be able to provide Medicaid services at your health care facilities. In this case, you may still be able to keep your medical license with the help of an experienced defense attorney.

Ways To Mitigate Damages

With the help of an attorney, you may be able to mitigate some of your consequences by negotiating with the prosecutor. Allocution is a recorded statement taken in court that describes the crime you committed. When a judge hears your plea and accepts it, they will ask what you did. If the prosecutor agrees, you will be able to change this record and it may lead to limited disciplinary exposure.

Hiring A New York Medical License Defense Lawyer

When you find yourself at risk of losing your medical license, it is in your best interest to hire the help of a defense lawyer you can trust. All New York professions are regulated through the State Education Department and investigated by the OPD for professional misconduct.
