I have been contacted by my licensing board or agency regarding allegations of misconduct. Do I need a Lawyer?

You are not required to obtain a lawyer but it is a prudent idea to retain one. Once you have secured the services of a legal representative, the board or agency is prohibited from communicating with you directly without the approval of you and your counsel. Furthermore, an attorney can speak with the agency’s investigators and determine what the allegations are and what if any preparations need to be done to prepare a defense.

If you have been charged with misconduct and are potentially facing the loss of your professional license, the Texas medical license defense attorneys of the Leichter Law Firm may be able to help. Please contact us today by calling 512-495-9995.
