Ethical and Professional Licensing Board Defense
Ethical and professional licensing board defense is another practice area in which Eccleston and Wolf specializes. Attorneys at Eccleston and Wolf represent many different types of professionals before grievance committees or other licensing boards, including lawyers, doctors, dentists, mental health professionals, accountants, social workers, and educators.
In addition to defending the actions through a hearing or trial, other methods of protecting the professional’s license are frequently successful. Often a dismissal of these matters can be brought about via a thorough investigation and response to the complaining or prosecuting body. In other instances, licenses can be retained through the use of diversion agreements where the professional either attends further continuing education or is monitored for a limited period of time by another professional.
