Professional Licensing and Ethics Representation in Ohio
Are you facing a grievance or ethics investigation that could threaten your professional license or result in sanctions? Attorneys Richard Cline and William Mann offer experienced representation for legal, medical, and other professionals throughout the state of Ohio who are facing disciplinary actions or other ethics litigation. We invite you to contact us today to schedule a free initial consultation.
In today's world, the professional is faced with many challenges in their effort to provide quality services to their clients or patients while complying with all of the laws, rules, and regulations governing their professional conduct. We understand the challenges the professional faces, and we have experience litigating disciplinary actions and defending professional licenses.
We understand that an effective defense helps the licensing or grievance board understand why you should not be sanctioned or, if a sanction is appropriate, why the sanction should be minimized. We work closely with our medical, legal, and other professional clients to determine what will work best for them in their individual situation. We will strive to present your facts and circumstances to the board fairly but in a way that accents your individual strengths and capabilities as well as the unique mitigating facts in your case.
We are available to represent a wide variety of Ohio's licensed professionals in a variety of professional license board complaint proceedings. These can include lawyers, health care professionals such as doctors, physician's assistants, nurses, pharmacists, respiratory care professionals, psychologists, optometrists, chiropractors, occupational therapists, physical therapists, podiatrists, dietitians, emergency medical technicians, dentists, and dental hygienists, and other licensed professionals throughout Ohio such as social workers, accountants, architects, engineers, and veterinarians. If a disciplinary action before your professional licensure board happens in conjunction with criminal charges or a malpractice lawsuit, we may be able to handle those cases for you as well.
Our legal services can include:
- Representation during investigations by, and hearings before, administrative licensure, grievance and disciplinary boards
- Appeals of board rulings to the Courts of Common Pleas, Courts of Appeal, and the Ohio Supreme Court
- Preventive consultation on compliance with professional responsibility and ethics
- Advisory opinions on professional responsibility or ethics issues, including attorney advertising reviews
