Doctors are regulated by a huge number of laws and regulations, both state and federal, affecting their profession directly. They are also subject to the penal code of each state, which can affect their professional license. Any time a doctor is affected or involved in a criminal proceeding or investigation, it is advisable to seek out the professional advice of an attorney who is experienced in both criminal defense and administrative law. That’s because any outcome of the criminal justice experience can have a direct impact on their professional license.
