Is your license to practice under legal investigation? Our firm has a wide range of experience representing attorneys, physicians, public officials, and other licensed professionals in administrative matters.
Professional representation cases and proceedings may involve allegations of professional misconduct, making it essential that we take every precaution to protect our clients’ privacy by keeping these sensitive matters strictly confidential. Our team of attorneys has extensive experience defending across an array of professional fields, licenses, and regulatory authorities. We have represented clients before a wide range of state regulatory authorities, including the Louisiana Board of Medical Examiners, Louisiana Attorney Disciplinary Board, Judiciary Commission of Louisiana, and Louisiana Board of Ethics. With their strong backgrounds as former prosecutors, Ralph and Brian Capitelli have also received special appointments as prosecutors in these types of administrative proceedings.
Accusations of ethical violations and professional misconduct can carry several professional and personal consequences, even if the charges are unfounded. We understand the gravity of these serious allegations, which can easily turn into invasive investigations without the early involvement of skilled counsel. Our clients have obtained favorable outcomes in a broad range of matters related to the practice of law, including attorney disciplinary actions, reinstatement, and applications for admission to the Louisiana bar.
Medical Licensing Board Investigations and Hearings:
Our attorneys have represented physicians, medical professionals, and other health care providers in administrative and licensure matters that in include but are not limited to: administrative and regulatory disputes, inquiries, investigations, and hearings. A lot can be on the line for our clients in these situations, both personally and professionally. Involving legal counsel with experience in these matters is essential to protecting your rights.
Investigations Resulting from Parallel Proceedings:
Licensed professionals may find themselves under investigation by a licensing board as a direct result of proceedings not related to their professional practice – such as violations of municipal ordinances or alleged criminal conduct. Because these unrelated violations may carry severe professional consequences, including the revocation of licensure, they should be handled by a skilled criminal defense lawyer. We have represented business professionals and public officials in a wide range of agency investigations arising from parallel proceedings, including DWI/DUI arrests; drug offenses; and criminal charges for fraud, bribery, and theft.
