Today’s professions, whether they be medical, dental, legal, or scientific, are governed by increasingly specific regulations and standards of professional conduct that are enforced by aggressive government agencies. The procedures of the various agencies governing professional licensure and disciplinary investigations and prosecutions can be complex. Sorling Northrup attorneys recognize the personal and professional toll that such proceedings may have upon the client. We understand the need to ensure prompt and confidential resolution of disciplinary investigations or uncontested matters wherever possible and conversely, consistent with the client’s goals, to aggressively contest and defend an individual’s professional license.
Through representation of professional associations and individual licensers, Sorling Northrup attorneys have a broad range and many years of experience before licensure and disciplinary bodies. Sorling Northrup attorneys have represented physicians, nurses, dentists, engineers, and clinical psychologists before the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation. They have also represented real estate professionals before the Office of Banks and Real Estate. Finally, Sorling Northrup attorneys have represented licensed attorneys before the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission. One Sorling Northrup attorney has formerly served as counsel to that Commission. Representation of insurance providers and funeral directors has also been a consistent part of the Sorling Northrup experience. The firm’s experience in this area provides clients with important and useful knowledge in responding to and defending against professional licensure investigations and prosecutions.
