Many of our professional license defense clients are people who suffer from mental illness and chemical dependency. Mental health and chemical dependency issues are complex. We regularly work with experts and frequently refer clients for treatment and monitoring to help them manage addictions and mental illnesses. A more favorable outcome is likely if such as avoiding disbarment, preventing license revocation, and stopping license suspension if you can show evidence of rehabilitation.

If you face suspension of your professional license, you should contact our lawyers for legal advice and representation as soon as possible. Our lawyers will do the necessary research to defend you. We will research prior situations that are similar to yours, which were resolved without a license suspension or denial. We will also look into chemical dependency treatment programs or an impaired physicians program that would allow you to maintain your license and continue working.
