Protecting Your Professional License
You have made a significant investment of time, money and effort in getting your professional license and building your professional practice. Even if your career is full of hard-earned accolades and adherence to the highest ethical standards, your professional license can be jeopardized by accusations of wrongdoing.
At Coodin & Overson, PLLP, we recognize the seriousness of regulatory agency investigations and their impact on our clients’ lives. We help protect individuals whose careers depend on professional licenses, including doctors, nurses, personal caregivers, nursing assistants, chiropractors, other attorneys, financial advisers, educators and more.
If you are the subject of an investigation, do not go through the process alone. Contact our office in Lake Elmo for a free initial consultation. We serve clients throughout St. Paul and the Twin Cities in these complex cases. Call 651-319-5180.
Defense Against Accusations That Threaten Your License And Career
We represent clients in a wide range of client or patient accusations, many of which involve baseless claims of negligence of misconduct.
For example, a patient may have suffered under a nurse’s care because of the nature of his or her illness. Upset family members may take action against the medical care professional, accusing him or her of abuse, neglect or other illegal activities.
Even if you are found not guilty of these allegations, you are still at risk for temporary license suspension during an investigation done by regulatory agencies like the Minnesota Board of Nursing, Minnesota Department of Human Services, Minnesota Board of Medical Practice or Minnesota Department of Health. Even temporary problems with your license can interrupt your career entirely or put your reputation under scrutiny — something that will affect your professional life for years to come.
We Can Advocate For You Aggressively And Effectively
Many professionals choose to cooperate with investigators when they begin their investigations. We strongly encourage you to consult a lawyer at our firm as soon as you know you are under investigation. The statements you make can jeopardize your future. We are here to make sure your rights are protected in these proceedings so you can get back to business as usual.
