Experienced Professional License Defense Attorneys in Pittsburgh
At Greenfield & Kraut we understand the procedures of the Pennsylvania Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs and work diligently to protect our clients’ rights at all stages of the disciplinary process.
We can represent you during the investigation period and in subsequent proceedings. We may be able to negotiate an acceptable sanction which does not involve the loss of your license. If necessary, we will represent you in a full evidentiary hearing.
If your case involves alcohol or drug dependency, your willingness to seek treatment can have a mitigating effect on the disciplinary sanctions imposed on you. Our firm can help you obtain treatment for these or other behavioral issues as part of an overall solution.
Defense of Criminal Charges
Greenfield & Kraut can also address any criminal charges related your professional licensing case. We have experience in cases involving DUI, drug charges, theft of prescription medications and other serious crimes. Often, a successful outcome in the criminal proceeding can help you avoid the loss of your license, but you may still face disciplinary action. In addition, when you renew your license you must report an arrest, nolo contendere, a probation without verdict or any outstanding criminal charge.
Greenfield & Kraut will represent you with determination — before the licensing board and in court.
