The board wants to suspend me indefinitely. What should I do?
Hire a lawyer. When the agency or Board is aware that they will have a fight on their hands, their position towards the disciplinary process is altered. In serious cases they will proceed anyway, but often the reality of a long fight tends to aid in negotiations or settlements. In any event, our licenses are our livelihood and to give up our privileges without the fair assertion of our rights is tantamount to quitting. Finally, it is the agency’s burden to prove you are not fit to practice in order to revoke your license; it is the applicant’s job to prove he or she is fit upon reapplication. A good strategy would be to keep the burden on the agency while gathering defensive, mitigation and rehabilitative evidence.
