Defense of Doctors
Tens of thousands of doctors face medical malpractice lawsuits every year. According to the National Practitioner Database, there were 12,226 medical malpractice payments made from 2004 through 2014 in Florida alone. Doctors, just like everyone else, make mistakes. Many of those mistakes are not grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit because they are not negligent accidents. Similarly, not all mistakes made by physicians are grounds for a suspended license. We defend physicians that have been charged with making errors as well as physicians who have been charged with the following allegations:
- Medication violation;
- Sexual misconduct;
- Patient abuse;
- Unethical conduct;
- Poor record keeping; and
Defense of Engineers

Defense of Teachers
According to the Florida Department of Education, educator misconduct covers a broad spectrum of offenses. Often, these offenses are entirely inaccurate portrayals by disgruntled parents or students. However, when you face a disciplinary hearing, your teaching license is on the line no matter what kind of misconduct you have been allegedly partaking in. Educator misconduct includes:
- Falsifying documents;
- Cheating on professional exams;
- Allowing students to cheat on state tests;
- Sexual abuse;
- Physical abuse; and
- Other non-educational matters such as substance abuse or other illegal activities.
