Experienced California Healthcare Provider Licensing Defense Attorneys
At Kosnett Professional Licensing Defense, our Los Angeles healthcare provider attorneys know that investigations and enforcement actions concerning our clients’ licenses can jeopardize not just their current livelihoods, but their future successes.
If you are a California healthcare professional who is facing an accusation from a patient, an administrative inquiry, or an investigation from the State of California Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA), our skilled Los Angeles County medical license defense attorneys are here to help prevent potential approval issues, and contest actions from the appropriate professional licensing boards.
It is important for healthcare professionals to act quickly and retain legal representation from a skilled licensing defense law firm in California, as investigators are often former law enforcement detectives, medical investigators, government agents, and other experienced professionals with years of experience who can be both intimidating and meticulous when building their cases.
In addition, there are multiple short-term timelines, based on the accusation or investigation, that must be met to ensure your response is properly managed, documented, and controlled, so your obligations are met from the start of your case.
Medical license investigations create risks, distractions, and uncertainty that may lead to giving unprompted statements that will hurt your case, and your ability to retain your medical license going forward.
We can help ensure your legal rights are protected, starting with a free consultation.
California Healthcare Provider Licensing Defense for All Medical Providers
Whether your DCA contact was precipitated by administrative licensing matters, patient complaints, shareholder accusations, or criminal charges, the impact these issues have on your professional licensure status can be permanent.
That is why we are here.
Our Kosnett Law, our healthcare provider defense attorneys have successfully represented medical professionals throughout California, including:
Our dedicated healthcare license defense lawyers in California have represented individuals, partnerships, and medical groups who were facing accusations involving:
- Aiding and abetting the unlicensed practice of medicine or failure to properly supervise registered nurses.
- Boundary violations with patients, including improper conduct and forbidden relationships.
- Criminal convictions, from a single drunk driving conviction to felony charges.
- Discipline of a license in another state or by another agency.
- Errors or fraud in charting, recordkeeping, and practice management.
- Failure to carry out mandatory reporting, including child abuse, elder abuse, lapse of consciousness, and injury from a criminal act.
- Fraudulent billing or kickbacks for healthcare services.
- Improper conduct in medical school or in a post-graduate program, resulting in a reportable adverse action.
- Inappropriate or sexual touching of patients.
- Medical errors that result in patient injury or death.
- Mental illness, addiction, or substance abuse resulting in alleged impairment.
- Prescribing errors.
- Prior history of discipline or addiction treatment with another state medical board or other licensing agency.
While we recommend partnering with a skilled professional licensing defense lawyer BEFORE responding to a complaint, we will provide the legal knowledge and resources you need during any stage of the due process you are entitled to, including:
- License Denials.
- Statement of Issues.
- Public Reproval.
If your matter is not resolved in the Accusation stage, an Administrative Hearing will be necessary at the Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH) before the presiding Administrative Law Judge from the OAH Medical Quality Hearing Panel who decides your case.
We can help ensure your story is told, and that the evidence to support your claim is presented with fervor. Our California healthcare license defense attorneys know that your personal and professional life is hanging in the balance, and we want to help ensure you are being treated fairly by the licensing board that holds your future in its hands.
If you have lost a medical license case in an OAH Hearing, a writ of mandamus provides a method of appealing the decision in the California Superior Court. A licensee usually has 30 days from the effective date of the OAH decision to file the writ petition in the Superior Court.
We have decades of experience producing real for licensed healthcare providers in California during each stage of their cases, so they can continue to pursue the successful future they deserve. We can help you too, starting with a free consultation today.
