Schern Richardson Finter represents professionals in the areas of licensing, privileging, credentialing, and disciplinary actions regarding the maintenance, protection and reinstatement of their licenses and businesses. Federal, state and municipal agencies are involved in rule making, adjudication, and enforcement and they control the administration, regulatory and licensing requirements. Anyone facing disciplinary actions should seek legal help from an experienced lawyer and not face the legal process alone. Our attorneys have the knowledge and resources to represent clients during the investigation state, at administrative hearings and trial when necessary. We help doctors, architects, chiropractors, accountants, appraisers, contractors, and other license holders in various administrative and regulatory matters and work to help them maintain their professional status and licenses.
All professional licenses are subject to strict standards set by the state codes and regulatory commissions. The maintenance of a license is vital to the ability to conduct business as a doctor, architect, lawyer, contractor, pharmacist, counselor, chiropractor and other types of professions. Applying for a license can be a lengthy and complicated procedure, and time consuming for the applicant. Our legal team can play a vital role in the application process as well as providing representation at hearings. Legal help during the appeals process can make a difference in reaching a favorable decision on the client's behalf.

A professional facing disciplinary actions, license suspension or cancellation understands the impact this can have on his or her future. Whether the charges are minor or major including criminal, we can help you at each step of the process. We understand the laws and the need clients have for representation at disciplinary hearings and the desire to retain their licenses.
Once a professional license holder has received a notice for a violation from the appropriate agency, there are steps that follow. First, there is an investigation stage where the agency representative will look into the possible wrongdoing. The next stage is an administrative hearing. The license holder has the right to have a hearing before an administrative law judge and demonstrate why he or she should maintain their license. If the judge is unable to reach a decision, then the case would go to trial. We represent clients in disciplinary hearings and the various proceedings. Some of the agencies that we help professional licensees with are:
