Being a licensed medical professional in New York State requires one to follow professional practices, as defined by a variety of state laws and regulations. Failure to meet these professional requirements is considered professional misconduct and proven professional misconduct may result in disciplinary action, which can even include the suspension or revocation of one’s license to practice.
Disciplinary actions can damage or even ruin a medical professional’s career, so it is imperative to hire an Experienced Attorney the moment they are aware that any investigation has begun. No medical professional should ever speak to any investigator without proper legal representation. An Experienced Attorney will protect their rights and fight for their ability to continue in their chosen profession. Medical professionals sometimes worry that hiring a lawyer will make them “look guilty.” Any agency investigating medical professionals understands that any party accused of wrongdoing has a right to representation. They will not assume guilt just because a lawyer has been hired. What hiring an Experienced Attorney like Jason Bassett, Esq. does is to put them on notice that you aren’t going to be pushed around and they cannot take advantage of you. The most important thing is that your rights and your career are protected, and this can only be done by an Attorney with experience in this unique area of the law.
