Take Immediate Action

Your livelihood is at stake. Immediate action is critical. As soon as you become aware that an inquiry is being conducted by the administrative body that oversees your profession, contact a lawyer. Chodos & Associates know how to work with administrative bodies to present a compelling reason for them not to move forward with an administrative hearing. These cases may stem from allegations of professional malpractice. They may also stem from criminal charges. If the criminal charge was disposed of, the first step may be to make it clear to the administrative body that the prosecutor did not consider the matter severe enough to take action, so it should be dismissed from an administrative perspective as well.

Administrative Hearings

Administrative hearings have the potential to be more destructive than some criminal trials. Chodos & Associates approaches these hearings using the same level of preparation and strategy that it does in any other trial. The goal is to present a compelling case to the administrative judge to make it clear that disciplinary action is unnecessary or, if it is, it needs to be realistic based on the allegations. Ultimately, the firm strives to prevent revocation or suspension of professional licenses or to see that they are quickly restored.
