When Health Care Providers Require Personal Defense Counsel

It is vital to have your health care counsel and your criminal counsel on the same page!

For any health care practitioner that finds themselves involved in a criminal matter (i.e. DWI, assault, sexual accusations to name but a few), it is vital to your medical license to make sure that your health care counsel and your criminal counsel are on the same page.

All too often the practitioner is unaware of the effect that even a good criminal case resolution may have on your ability to practice medicine.

I strongly advise any healthcare practitioner to never sign off on any criminal matter without consulting your health care counsel.

As health care attorneys, we have significant experience in interpreting and applying the regulations governing facility licensing.  If you have any questions about the application process, or any other related matters, please contact Sandra Jarva Weiss, Chair of the Health Care and Life Sciences Practice Group, at sjarvaweiss@norris-law.com.
