Kansas Professional Licensing Attorney – With So Much at Stake Accept No Less

The impact of a disciplinary review or investigation can have long-term implications on your ability to utilize your professional training. Even when a disciplinary action is based on claims that are without merit, it is important to have an experienced Kansas professional license defense lawyer to safeguard your rights. It is never advisable to speak with the investigator without legal representation. The function of the investigator is to develop evidence that may be used against you in a disciplinary proceeding.

Many administrative actions or investigations by licensing boards are without merit because little evidence is needed to commence an investigation. These disciplinary actions may be commenced in a variety of ways, which include a complaint brought by a client, patient, family member, employer, co-worker, spouse or significant other. The precise content of the complaint will depend on your specific profession but will typically allege unethical conduct, malpractice, negligence, substandard care and/or incompetence. Disciplinary actions also may arise from allegations of substance abuse, driving under the influence (DUI/DWI), domestic violence, violent criminal offenses or theft/embezzlement charges.

If you are facing a potential administrative action by your licensing board, it is important to know that an acquittal at trial or dismissal of charges in a criminal court does not necessarily mean that you will not face an action imposing professional discipline or revocation of your professional license. If you are subject to an adverse outcome in your disciplinary proceeding, you may receive probation, fines, suspension, public reprimand, and even loss of your professional license.

Fighting Adverse Decisions in Disciplinary Actions and Denials of Professional Licenses

Kansas professional license defense attorney Danielle Sanger also represents clients that have already received professional discipline, including a sanction, license denial, suspension, or license revocation.

We may seek to reverse your adverse outcome through the appropriate agency or by filing a motion in the appropriate court.
