Medical Professional Conduct Defense in New York State

Being a licensed medical professional by New York State requires adherence to professional practice as defined by state law, rules, and regulations. Failure to meet these professional requirements is considered ‘professional misconduct.’ When proven, professional misconduct typically results in disciplinary action including revoking or suspending ones medical professional licenses and/or other serious disciplinary measures. Such actions could damage or ruin a medical professional’s career.

When to Hire a Defense Attorney

You should never speak to an investigator, or navigate a professional conduct investigation without proper legal representation that will protect your rights and fight for your ability to continue your medical career. Disciplinary inquiry – even when you are confident the accusations are without merit, should be perceived to be very serious.

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
