The ramifications from an investigation against your license can be devastating and can potentially lead to both a formal Accusation requesting to revoke your license, as well as criminal charges. You may think that you can challenge the investigation on your own, or that if you ignore it, then it will go away. But this investigation will not go away by itself!

Although it may seem easy to defend yourself, you are risking your license, livelihood, and your practice. The Physical Therapy Board will be represented by an experienced attorney from the Attorney General’s Office, and they will have knowledgeable investigators at their disposal. In order to zealously combat the accusations of the Physical Therapy Board, you need an experienced physical therapy license defense attorney who understands the process to help protect your Physical Therapist License, an attorney who is knowledgeable about the Disciplinary Process, and an attorney who has successfully advocated for hundreds of licensed professionals.
