Defense of Professionals
Maryland requires licenses for many professionals, some of whom face disciplinary action for various reasons and who need experienced counsel who, not only know the regulators seeking to impose the discipline, but also the administrative law system that governs how such proceedings occur. Silverman Thompson has successfully defended judges and lawyers in professional fitness and grievance proceedings, including before the Maryland Commission on Judicial Disabilities and the Maryland Attorney Grievance Commission; healthcare professionals - including doctors and nurses - in licensing proceedings before the Office of Administrative Hearings, and other professionals as well. Many of the matters we have handled resolve without charges being filed.
Professional licensing actions can run parallel to criminal investigations. Click here for more information on our extensive experience handling such investigations.
