Is Your Professional License In Jeopardy?
Your livelihood and your reputation are tied to your Florida professional license. A suspension or revocation would be devastating. Even a reprimand in your file or public allegations of wrongdoing could do great damage to your business or your career.
The Law Office of Corey I. Cohen & Associates represents medical professionals and other licensed professionals who are facing disciplinary action. Our skilled lawyers can defend you in the administrative law proceedings to protect your license, as well as any parallel criminal proceedings.
If you have been notified by your administrative board or suspect you are under investigation, get in touch with us immediately. We provide a free, confidential consultation to discuss where you stand and how we can help.
Florida Professional License Defense
It’s scary and stressful to be accused of a crime or ethical violation, especially when it could sideline you from practice or bring your business to its knees. We invite any professional whose state licensure is in jeopardy, including:
- Doctors, dentists and nurses
- Psychologists and counselors
- Engineers and architects
- Certified public accountants (CPAs)
- Real estate brokers and appraisers
- Construction contractors and tradesmen
- Teachers and professors
Corey Cohen leads a team of attorneys that is eminently equipped to protect you. We will counsel you on how to respond to a complaint filed with the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) or any of its divisions, such as the Board of Medicine or Board of Nursing, and guide you through all subsequent administrative hearings.
We can also defend you separately on any criminal charges that triggered the professional license inquiry, such as a first-time DUI, charges of drug possession, or allegations of fraud or breach of fiduciary duty.
Proactive Defense In Administrative Law
No matter how dire your situation may seem, Corey Cohen and Associates can come to your aid at any stage of the process. We will advise you what to say (and not say) to the licensing authorities. We will challenge baseless allegations or help you tell your side of the story. We will present mitigating circumstances to argue for leniency, such as a fine, reprimand, probation or substance abuse treatment in lieu of suspending or revoking your license.
Our lawyers can also intervene on behalf of individuals who are denied a professional license or turned down for license renewal because of a past conviction or pending criminal matter.
We Will Fight For You
We do understand what is at stake. Our legal team will do everything in its power to retain your license and clear your name, or to minimize the consequences of a regrettable episode to give you a chance to recover from this.
