How Can Patituce & Associates Help with Your Case?
If you are a medical professional facing criminal charges, you need immediate representation to cover both the criminal charges and the impending disciplinary action. Most defense attorneys do not understand, and do not practice, before the various state boards and therefore do not know that even a successful defense can have lasting penalties for the medical professional if not handled appropriately.
For instance, in a case where a doctor is accused of inappropriate patient
contact, they may defeat the charges and obtain an acquittal but in doing
so may establish the grounds to have his license revoked. It takes an
Cleveland defense lawyer to navigate that minefield!
We would not perform surgery on ourselves and a doctor should not perform legal surgery on their career! As well-educated professionals, we often think that we can handle anything that comes our way, but it is important to remember that not even criminal lawyers defend themselves when they face charges - at least not the good ones.
