Minnesota Professional License Defense Lawyer & Attorney
There are state licensing boards in place for many professionals working within Minnesota. These professionals include doctors, nurses, attorneys, judges, psychologists, psychiatrists, nursing assistants, and so many more. They take licensing exams to obtain their licenses after they meet a strict set of educational requirements.
There are cases in which an accusation of professional misconduct may result in the suspension or revocation of a professional license. A nursing professional, for instance, can face a misconduct investigation based on allegations, such as practicing under the influence of drugs or alcohol, gross negligence, abuse of patients, and failure to properly maintain medical records. These investigations are a serious matter, as it could lead to license suspension or revocation if the person is unable to overcome the accusations. The loss of a license could completely ruin a career. Even a temporary suspension may pose challenges in finding another position.
We assist professionals including:
Many times, an issue that clients face when an accusation has been made is that of ethical dilemmas. This means that there is an accusation that ethical guidelines were violated. Of course, it has to be proven that you did violate those guidelines and our job is to prove that you didn’t.

Licensing Board Disciplinary Hearings
If you have been accused of a violation, a licensing board disciplinary hearing is held to determine if a violation did take place. If it is determined one did take place, then disciplinary action is handed down. You do have the right to have an attorney present during your hearing to present evidence that no violation took place or that the violation was not as severe as what it may appear to be. Even if disciplinary action must be taken due to a legitimate accusation, the goal is to keep your license intact so that you may continue in your profession after you have paid the penalties for the violation.
