Question: Why don’t you simply
defend me in a Board Accusation the same way you would in a criminal
case, i.e. force them to prove every point, go over the prosecution
case with a fine toothed comb? Then I can walk away free.
Answer: I do that. I have
done top level criminal defense work for over 30 years. But Board
Accusations have a much lower standard of proof (preponderance of
the evidence) and a much looser set of standards for evidence
against you to come in. The other problem with this old fashioned
approach is that it ignores your needs as a person. Why is a
thoughtful, moral, well educated person like you now facing an
Question: Can I have you help
me change the patterns in my life that have produced the trouble I am
in at the same time as you conduct good standard defense work?
Answer: Absolutely, that is
what I do.
Question: If I am abusing
Vicodin, using false prescriptions to get them or splitting
prescriptions with my patients, or buying drugs in bulk for which
there are no proper distribution records, how does my dealing with my
substance abuse issues help my case?
Answer: Whether your case is
criminal, or Board action, or DEA, or hospital privileges, or Health
& Human Services - whatever it is, if you are willing to acknowledge
what happened to you and to change your behavior, to modify your
desire for substances, I have found, beyond question, that everyone
within the system will bend over backwards to help you. This
requires that you do the genuine work. I will help you understand
what that is, personally work with you and make referrals if
necessary. I have a nationwide base of trained people to help you so
your recovery will be real and the prosecutors and the judges will
respond to you in a completely different way than if your position
is, “I am fine and I did nothing wrong.”
Question: Can your approach
change the way I am listed in the National Practitioner’s databank or
other places which carry a record of the problems I have had?
Answer: Your willingness to
do what needs to be done gets communicated throughout your process,
mostly by me. But also by our behavior in the court system. The
result is that actions and refinements and changes in the listing
which make you look better which we could not compel without a very
expensive and time consuming lawsuit, have been given because of the
Overall Comment: This approach
that I have designed is the most exciting practice to come along to
help professionals. It gives you the best possible disposition of your
case, it improves your personal and professional life from this time
forward. A very high percentage of my clients are still clean and
sober and living a happy and productive life after many years. AND
IT WORKS ANYWHERE, IN ANY STATE, IN ANY FEDERAL COURT.
