Healthcare Professional License Defense Lawyers in Nashville, TN
We Handle Criminal & Disciplinary Proceedings
Doctors and nurses who are arrested on drug or other criminal charges in Tennessee often find themselves facing two separate proceedings: a criminal case in state or federal court, and a disciplinary proceeding before the Tennessee Department of Health. The first concerns criminal sanctions such as fines and jail time. The second concerns your professional license.
At May McKinney in Nashville, we represent healthcare professionals before the Board of Nurses, the Board of Medical Examiners, and other licensing agencies across Tennessee. Our experience in this specific area has brought us clientele from a variety of professions and a track record of success in defending cases involving license sanctions, suspensions, and revocations. We also defend healthcare professionals against criminal charges.
Fighting to Defend Healthcare Professionals’ Interests
When you entered the healthcare profession, you probably never imagined giving up your ability to practice. However, medical boards have the power to revoke or impose restrictions on licenses that can affect your reputation and make it impossible to earn a living.
If you’re facing license suspension or revocation, you need an aggressive approach from a knowledgeable attorney. Our Nashville healthcare professional license defense attorneys represent:
- Dental assistants
- Plastic surgeons
The most common reason for license suspension in Tennessee is drug charges. In addition to taking on cases involving illegal drug possession or use, we represent healthcare professionals in cases involving DUI, fraud, malpractice, alcohol abuse, sexual abuse, and assault. Regardless of the circumstances, we can offer knowledgeable guidance and counsel.
Your future is too important to leave to chance. For more information or to schedule your confidential strategy session with one of our skilled lawyers, call (615) 265-6383.
