Physical Therapist Accused of Entering into a Relationship with Patient Maintains License

Posted in Licensing Defense,News

The California Board of Physical Therapy, like the Medical Board of California, has a strict prohibition against having romantic relationships with clients. The act of commencing an intimate relationship is not only a violation of the Medical Board of California/ Physical Therapy Board of California’s Practice Act, it can also result in criminal charges.

If you are contacted by an investigator regarding such allegations it is important to retain a professional license defense attorney with substantial criminal defense experience.

Recently our office represented a Physical Therapist accused of such allegations. After submitting significant mitigation and considerable negotiations the Attorney General’s Office agreed to allow the client to maintain their professional license.

If you have been contacted by an investigator or have had an Accusation filed against you do not hesitate in contacting our office at (619) 237-6130.
