Fort Lauderdale Administrative Law Attorneys
Professional License Defense • Internal Affairs Representation
When a licensed professional is accused of breaking the law or accused of a serious breach of ethics, there can be criminal charges, administrative sanctions or both. The accused often must walk a fine line in these parallel proceedings – a misstep or bad outcome in either venue could be career-ending or lead to jail.
At Bogenschutz, Dutko & Kroll, P.A., we understand that your livelihood, your reputation and everything you have worked so hard to achieve is at stake. We are one of the few criminal defense firms in Broward County that also represents professionals in review board license defense proceedings. Contact us today to learn how we can help.
Representing Professionals Accused of Crimes
We have represented licensed professionals in both state and federal criminal prosecutions. Most often the allegations involve financial crimes such as embezzlement from an employer, misappropriation of client funds or health care billing fraud. However, we can defend clients against any misdemeanor or felony charges that may have a bearing on their professional status, such as drunk driving, drug possession, domestic violence or sexual assault.
We explore all avenues to get charges dismissed or reduced, or to negotiate alternatives that keep the conviction off one's record and avoid jail, if possible.
