Professional Disciplinary Actions
Whether you are a medical professional, insurance agent, realtor, architect, interior designer, accountant, or any other professional, your client's dissatisfaction with the services you provide, whether justified or not, can threaten your reputation and the right to practice in the career you love. If you are a professional facing an inquiry or hearing by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation, or other regulatory body, attempting to handle the matter by yourself can be difficult, time-consuming, and most of all, risky.Defending Your Reputation And Career

The hearing and disciplinary procedures for the professions licensed by the State of Florida can vary. Typically, there is a two-stage process: (1) a fact-finding stage; and (2) a possible formal hearing before a board of peer professionals and state officials. The attorneys at Chepenik Trushin LLP have a strong record of success protecting professionals at both stages of the process.
The review process can often be handled by an informative and properly drawn response to the fact-finding inquiry. Our firm can help you prepare a response that demonstrates your professional responsibility and regulatory compliance. If the review proceeds to the second stage, we can prepare a comprehensive response and represent you at the formal administrative board hearing.
Each of the licensing boards has its own procedures, conception of professional responsibility, and institutional personality. The attorneys at Chepenik Trushin LLP are experienced in dealing with many of the diverse issues, which can come before these boards. We will work hard to preserve your right to practice your profession.
Ultimately, many allegations of fraud, negligence, malpractice, or misconduct against licensed professionals are completely unfounded. You should not compromise your ability to practice your profession by making any admissions during the fact-finding procedure, nor should you waive any rights before you talk with an experienced professional liability attorney. It is important to call a qualified attorney to help you navigate the process. When problems start to arise, do not hesitate to call one of our experienced professionals. Chepenik Trushin LLP will work hard to preserve your livelihood, rights, and reputation.
