Defense of Professional Licenses

A professional whose license is at risk requires knowledgeable, energetic, and discrete representation. Brown, Goldstein & Levy is proud that so many professionals have turned to us to protect their livelihood and professional reputation. The firm has represented lawyers facing disbarment; dentists and physicians subject to disciplinary action for allegations of malpractice; health care practitioners of all kinds in Medicaid and insurance fraud investigations; and professionals with addiction problems. Additionally, the firm has represented applicants to the Maryland Bar whose admission was denied for past misconduct and attorneys threatened with disciplinary action.

Many of these cases have been resolved quietly at the investigation stage without any formal charges being brought. In other cases, we have been successful in negotiating private reprimands or other resolutions that preserve our clients’ ability to continue practicing their professions.

Representative Cases

  • Convinced the Maryland Board of Physicians and other licensing boards not to file charges against medical professionals.
  • Represented medical professionals, including physicians, nurses, dentists, psychologists, and counselors, before Maryland’s professional licensing boards, defending against allegations of negligence, substance abuse, and sexual impropriety.
