How can a defense attorney help?
Disciplinary and licensure hearings are adversarial proceedings and you should have a criminal attorney represent you just like any other legal proceeding. As an experienced defense attorney, Carl H. Lida will ensure all necessary filings and documents are complete and will thoroughly investigate all circumstances regarding the allegations against you. We will then use any discovered evidence to develop a strategy for your defense and make attempts at a settlement with the licensing board that will allow you to keep practicing your profession. If no settlement is reached, we will aggressively protect your rights and best interests in administrative hearings or other proceedings.
There are numerous ways to defend a professional license. We can present evidence of mitigating factors, such as any rehabilitative efforts, third party conduct, mental health issues, and more. We can also negotiate with the licensing board so the consequences you face are limited. If you have been wrongfully accused of conduct, we will fight to prove that the allegations are false. We will also serve as a guide so that you do not say anything in front of the board that may unintentionally incriminate you. Finally, if your license has already been revoked, we can appeal the decision.
