California Physician Assistant Board License Defense Lawyers

Fighting to Keep Your PA License in California

Let’s be real – having the folks at the California Physician Assistant Board come after your license is scary stuff. Your reputation, job, income – your whole livelihood – could be on the chopping block. So if you find yourself in this situation, it’s crucial to get an experienced lawyer on your team ASAP.

In Cali, the PA Board oversees licensing and discipline under the Medical Board. Their goal is protecting the public, sure, but sometimes honest mistakes can make them question your license. A lawyer who knows PA license defense inside and out can help you navigate this messy process and build a solid case to save your license.

Why the PA Board Might Investigate You

There’s a bunch of reasons the PA Board may open an investigation on you, like:

  • – Messing up on the job
  • – Going beyond your scope of practice
  • – Substance abuse issues
  • – Unprofessional behavior
  • – Harming a patient or abandoning them
  • – Fraud
  • Criminal convictions
  • – Not complying with supervision rules

Sometimes it’s just a misunderstanding or a judgment call made in good faith. Other times, angry patients, coworkers, or bosses file beefs out of spite. Either way, take any Board investigation seriously and get a lawyer on your team ASAP.

How the PA Board Investigates and Disciplines

If someone files a complaint against you, the Board can fully investigate through interviews, paperwork review, site visits, expert testimony – the works. You’ll get notice of the complaint and a chance to respond in writing. If they find solid evidence against you, you may face:

  • – Probation, limits on, or suspension of your license
  • – Required continuing education
  • – Practice monitoring
  • – Fines or restitution
  • – Straight up loss of license

Having a lawyer in your corner can help ensure your rights are protected, claims are properly investigated, and any discipline fits the situation.

Building a Strong Defense to Protect Your License

There are different legal defenses your lawyer could use, like:

Just had my Divorce case settled 2 months ago after having a horrible experience with another firm. I couldn’t be happier with Claire Banks and Elizabeth Garvey with their outstanding professionalism in doing so with Spodek Law Group. Any time I needed questions answered they were always prompt in doing so with all my uncertainties after 30 yrs of marriage.I feel from the bottom of my heart you will NOT be disappointed with either one. Thanks a million.

Alex Zhik contacted me almost immediately when I reached out to Spodek for a consultation and was able to effectively communicate the path forward/consequences of my legal issue. I immediately agreed to hire Alex for his services and did not regret my choice. He was able to cover my case in court (with 1 day notice) and not only was he able to push my case down, he carefully negotiated a dismissal of the charge altogether. I highly recommend Spodek, and more specifically, Alex Zhik for all of your legal issues. Thanks guys!

I don’t know where to start, I can write a novel about this firm, but one thing I will say is that having my best interest was their main priority since the beginning of my case which was back in Winter 2019. Miss Claire Banks, one of the best Attorneys in the firm represented me very well and was very professional, respectful, and truthful. Not once did she leave me in the dark, in fact she presented all options and routes that could possibly be considered for my case and she reinsured me that no matter what I decided to do, her and the team will have my back and that’s exactly what happened. Not only will I be liberated from this case, also, I will enjoy my freedom and continue to be a mother to my first born son and will have no restrictions with accomplishing my goals in life. Now that’s what I call victory!! I thank the Lord, My mother, Claire, and the Spodek team for standing by me and fighting with me. Words can’t describe how grateful I am to have the opportunity to work with this team. I’m very satisfied, very pleased with their performance, their hard work, and their diligence. Thank you team!

I can't recommend Alex Zhik and Spodek Law Firm highly enough for their exceptional legal representation and personal mentorship. From the moment I engaged their services in October 2022, Alex took the time to understand my case thoroughly and provided guidance every step of the way. Alex's dedication to my case went above and beyond my expectations. His expertise, attention to detail, and commitment to achieving the best possible outcome were evident throughout the entire process. He took the time to mentor me, ensuring I understood the legal complexities involved to make informed decisions. Alex is the kind of guy you would want to have a beer with and has made a meaningful impact on me. I also want to acknowledge Todd Spodek, the leader of the firm, who played a crucial role in my case. His leadership and support bolstered the efforts of Alex, and his involvement highlighted the firm's commitment to excellence. Thanks to Alex Zhik and Todd Spodek, I achieved the outcome I desired, and I am incredibly grateful for their professionalism, expertise, and genuine care. If you're in need of legal representation, look no further than this outstanding team.
  • Lack of evidence – The Board’s gotta prove it, so if their claims don’t hold up, you shouldn’t face discipline. A lawyer can hold them accountable.
  • Good faith – You acted reasonably with the knowledge you had at the time.
  • No harm – The patient wasn’t actually injured or damaged.
  • Misunderstanding – It was a miscommunication, not negligence or misconduct.
  • Sketchy complaint – The beef is bogus or comes from shady motives.
  • Rehabilitation – You’ve taken responsibility and completed rehab for any issues.

On top of legal defenses, your lawyer will gather evidence, get expert testimony, and develop extenuating circumstances to convince the Board not to discipline you. Having an experienced attorney in your corner is the best way to protect your reputation and ability to practice.
