Professional Licenses: Work With An Attorney Who Is A Specialist In Administrative Law

For licensed professionals, obtaining and maintaining that license is critical to his or her career. As most professional licensure cases involve the administrative agencies that regulate the licenses for various professions, it is important to work with an experienced administrative lawyer. Administrative law is not a separate substantive area of law as much as it is a totally different set of rules and procedures.

David V. Patton: An OSBA Certified Specialist In Administrative Law

As a Cleveland professional licensure attorney, I am uniquely positioned to represent my professional clients before the appropriate agencies. My legal experience began more than 15 years ago, working in the Health and Human Services Section of the Ohio Attorney General's Office. In this role, I represented the licensing boards that include the Ohio State Chiropractic Board, the Ohio Counselor, Social Worker, and Marriage & Family Therapist Board, the Ohio Board of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, the State Medical Board of Ohio and the Ohio Department of Insurance. I have experience from both sides of licensure conflicts, which is a tremendous benefit to my clients.

Representing Professionals In A Wide Range Of Licensing Issues

I can represent any kind of individual or entity who requires licensure to operate legally in the state, handling cases that involve restaurant licenses, casino licenses and liquor licenses, to name a few. I help clients:

  • Apply for licenses: In many cases, professionals experience roadblocks and delays in the process of obtaining professional licenses. I help clients with the filing requirements and represent clients at the administrative hearings required for obtaining their licenses.
  • Defend against disciplinary actions: I represent doctors accused of stealing medication or behaving inappropriately with vulnerable patients, chiropractors accused of misleading advertisements and any type of professional accused of alcohol or drug violations that could result in license revocation.
  • Transfer licenses from out of state: Challenges can arise with the licensure boards when professionals move to Ohio from out of state. I represent transferring incoming professions with reciprocity and Ohio license applications.
