New Jersey Professional License Defense Lawyers

Essex County Consumer Affairs Defense Attorneys

The state licensing boards are part of the Department of Consumer Affairs and are required to investigate any complaint from many sources such as a pharmacist, patient, insurance company, employer, or National Practitioner Data Bank Report. In many cases, you will not lose your license. Instead, you may have to take continuing education courses, return money to the aggrieved patient and/or be fined by the board. Your license may be suspended for a period of time but you may ultimately be allowed to return to your practice. The resolutions of the board inquiry may take up to two years before they are decided due to your state board's workload. We are with you every step of the way, working diligently to mitigate any potential penalty.
