Texas Medical License Lawyers

The Texas medical license lawyers of the Leichter Law Firm PC are devoted to the legal representation of physicians, medical professionals (i.e. nurses, pharmacists, and dentists) in administrative licensing and healthcare matters in both state and federal disputes, regulatory inquiries and investigations, criminal defense and healthcare related transactions. We are a physician/clinician-friendly firm, and do not represent entities who have filed a complaint and caused an investigation by a regulatory body or board which could result in a restriction of the provider to engage in their ongoing profession. We have made this choice decisively, despite financial incentives to represent interests adverse to those the firm believes are paramount to the delivery of safe and effective healthcare to the public at large.  In short, we do not represent hospitals, but focus on the provider, who we believe is the mainframe and ultimate differential that distinguishes the delivery of optimal medical care.

Since our inception, we have successfully represented vast numbers of physicians, nurses, dentists, veterinarians, lawyers, and psychologists (etc.) in both disciplinary and post-disciplinary licensure matters involving judicial review and rule challenges with successful appellate decisions issued by the Supreme Court of Texas and/or the jurisdictional Court of Appeals/District Court from which the matter was adjudicated. Additionally, we have successfully handled multiple transactional disputes and negotiations with medical staff matters/hospital peer review, the organizational structuring and licensing of pharmacies and other healthcare related entities, overtime claims, and transactional disputes and litigation on behalf of our clients. We are particularly versed in handling Physician / Texas Medical Board complaints which involve either standard of care or behavioral concerns including chemical dependency, intemperate use cases and boundary violations.  Inclusive of these files is the relationship to the standard/quality of care provided by the physician, non-therapeutic prescribing, the inadequate maintenance and documentation of medical records. We have also successfully handled and resolved multiple psychiatrist/physician sexual boundary violations resulting in the physician’s ability to continue to see patients without the loss of their license or other restrictive prohibitions which would render their practice impossible.
