An inquiry that risks the interruption of your practice often seems insurmountable. Problems regarding admission or challenges affecting the viability of your hard-earned license are frightening. Professional disciplinary and licensure measures are fairly common among many professional industries, especially in law, medicine, and accounting.
Whether you a registered nurse facing an expired license or a lawyer dealing with potential exposure to discipline, active suspensions, or disbarment, professional disciplinary problems can be serious and usually require expert legal counsel. This area of our practice requires approaches that are not the same as those employed in civil and criminal courtrooms. The procedural guidelines and systematic methods utilized in these inquiries are different. The rules applicable to professional inquiries are also different and – in some cases – arcane. Thus, from the very first moment that these challenges arise, it is imperative that you retain seasoned and experienced counsel with a documented track record of diligence and practice in this field.
In order to oversee professional disciplinary violations in Louisiana, the Louisiana State Court created the Louisiana Attorney Disciplinary Board to administer discipline to lawyers found in violation of Louisiana legal professional standards. We frequently handle professional disciplinary issues for attorneys, such as defense cases against allegations of impropriety and allegations submitted to the Louisiana licensing disciplinary board.
