Illinois Physicians and Health Care Providers Professional Regulation and License Defense


When Your Future as a Professional Is At Stake, You Need a Professional to Protect Your Future

If you are an Illinois physician or other health care professional, you know that the legal, regulatory, and licensure requirements that govern your work are numerous and complex. Any number of missteps or allegations can put your career and reputation at risk. If and when the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) begins an investigation or commences proceedings against you, all that you have worked so hard for hangs in the balance.

With so much on the line, having an experienced Illinois physicians and health care providers professional regulation and license defense attorney on your side can mean the difference between a footnote in your career or the final chapter. Throughout my career, I have been protecting the livelihoods and professional futures of physicians and other health care providers before the IDFPR, combining insight and experience with zealous and strategic advocacy.

Former IDFPR Chief Prosecuting Attorney

As a former Chief Prosecuting Attorney and administrative law judge for IDFPR, I have seen the serious consequences that an adverse enforcement decision can have on professionals who suddenly find their future in disarray. I have also seen highly intelligent and competent physicians and health care professionals make the ill-advised decision to deal with license and disciplinary issues without experienced counsel. The policies and procedures that govern IDFPR investigations, hearings, and imposition of sanctions are unique and complicated, and often times unwritten and informal; even skilled and experienced attorneys who do not practice before IDFPR can find themselves at a loss when dealing with licensure issues.

With experience both prosecuting and defending doctors and other health care professionals before IDFPR, I understand how and why the Department decides to pursue investigations, how it handles negotiations, and how to approach formal proceedings in a way that gives my clients the best possible chance of a positive outcome.
