It is critical for professionals facing a lawsuit or disciplinary actions to be represented by experienced counsel. Suits against doctors and lawyers, for example, come in the form of malpractice actions where they are often alleged to have deviated from the standard of care for a patient or client. For law enforcement, the suits often allege violations of constitutional rights.
Frequently there are overlapping lawsuits and professional discipline investigations for the same alleged misconduct. Our attorneys have successfully represented professionals in civil litigation and disciplinary proceedings before a wide-range of licensing authorities, including the Board of Bar Overseers, the Board of Registration in Medicine, Board of Registration in Nursing and in connection with police internal affairs investigations. Given the recent passage of police reform legislation in Massachusetts, we anticipate representing law enforcement officers before the newly-created Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) Commission.
We understand the emotional and professional issues involved when dealing with the disciplinary process. Our clients can depend upon our knowledge and experience to achieve the best possible results, so that they can return to business as usual.
