Professional Responsibility

All professionals have a legal and ethical responsibility to use their knowledge to act in a manner that benefits their clients without harm to either his or her client or society at large. Professional misconduct is a serious matter confronting many licensed and responsible professionals in all fields, especially those in the medical community. Consider these facts:

  • Licensed professionals in the State of New York are constantly being subject to investigation and prosecution via State agencies.
  • Medical professionals practicing in New York are subject to investigation and potential disciplinary action by the New York State Department of Health Office of Professional Medical Conduct.
  • The New York State Education Department’s Office of the Professions, through the Board of Regents, aggressively investigates and prosecutes alleged misconduct in all licensed professions other than medicine.

Professionals spend sometimes decades in training, investing years of life and great financial costs to become valued members of society. In the event of legal action, that training, time and money can easily be thrown away when you act without proper legal representation.
