Indiana professional licensing lawyer for PLA discipline and DEA registration defense

Lawyer for License Discipline, DEA Investigations, and Related Issues

Licensed professionals put a great deal of time, effort, and expense into their careers. After investing in the necessary education and training and completing all of the requirements to obtain a professional license, a person will want to avoid any issues that may cause them to be unable to continue working in their chosen field. Unfortunately, there are a variety of reasons why a person may face discipline, and if this results in the temporary or permanent loss of their license, multiple aspects of their career may be affected. In these cases, professionals may struggle to address claims that they have committed violations warranting discipline, and even after taking the proper corrective action, a person's reputation and career may never fully recover.

To make sure issues related to their professional license will be addressed correctly, a person will want to discuss their options with an experienced lawyer. At The Law Offices of Joseph J. Bogdan, Inc., we provide representation for multiple types of licensed professionals, helping them determine their best options for responding to investigations, avoiding discipline, and ensuring that they will be able to minimize the effects that these issues will have on their careers. In addition to addressing matters related to licensing, we can also help professionals defend against other forms of discipline, including in cases where a person is accused of violating the laws related to the use of controlled substances.

Professional Licensing Issues in Indiana

The Indiana Professional Licensing Agency (PLA) regulates multiple types of professional licenses. Different divisions and licensing boards within the PLA handle license applications and renewals, and they may also investigate professionals based on alleged violations and determine whether disciplinary action is warranted. Depending on the severity of a person's alleged violations, how patients or customers have been affected, and the measures that may be necessary to prevent future violations, different types of discipline may be appropriate. In some cases, a person's professional license may be suspended or revoked, fines may be issued, or a professional may be placed on probation that will subject them to certain limitations or requirements. In some cases, discipline may be limited to a reprimand or censure, which will not affect a person's ability to continue practicing.

We assist with multiple types of professional license defense cases, including providing legal help with:

We provide complete representation for licensed professionals, helping them address any issues that may affect their careers. In addition to addressing disciplinary action by a licensing board, we can also help defend against the loss of provider status with Medicare/Medicaid, loss of hospital privileges, or loss of specialty board certification.

DEA Investigations and Issues Affecting Controlled Substance Registration

Professionals who work with controlled substances are required to maintain a registration with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Accusations of unlawful prescribing or dispensing of controlled substances or other issues related to drug diversion or drug trafficking may lead the DEA to investigate a provider and determine whether their controlled substance registration should be suspended or revoked. We help medical providers and other professionals determine how to proceed during DEA investigations and avoid the loss of a registration or other penalties. We provide assistance to doctors, nurses, dentists, pharmacies, and others in these cases.
