Professional Licensing

Professional Licensing/Board Representation

Our attorneys understand that for licensed professionals and businesses, your license is your livelihood.  We provide expert guidance and representation of individuals and businesses confronted with licensing issues, from acquiring the appropriate license to investigations to adjudicatory hearings and administrative appeals.

Over the years our attorneys have guided hundreds of individuals through the often difficult process of defending their license and practice.  We have provided representation at numerous boards of registration in professional licensure, including defense of physicians, physician assistants, nurses, dentists, hygienists, psychologists, optometrists, podiatrists, pharmacists, social workers, mental health professionals, massage therapists, funeral home directors, real estate agents, and real estate appraisers.

HMDR&S’s extensive experience has uniquely positioned us to advantage our clients with procedural and substantive actions that are unknown to the defense bar at large. Our familiarity with the boards and their administrative procedures can expedite the process of achieving dismissals and other favorable outcomes for our clients, with an associated reduction in the disruption to our clients and cost to insurers.

We appreciate that sometimes your personal life can impact your professional life.  Drawing on our many years of practice and resources, we can assist you in presenting your case to the board in a favorable manner, including all mitigating circumstances, remedial efforts, and expert support for your defense.  We’ve had significant success in arranging nondisciplinary pre-hearing solutions for our clients, including PHS and SARP referrals*. 

Our professional licensure defense goes hand-in-hand with our thriving malpractice defense practice for healthcare providers, real estate professionals, and other professionals.

Our attorneys are here to answer your questions about board regulations and advisories and help incorporate risk management practices into your business.  We can also advise your business on proper employment practices and contract issues.
