Medical and Health Care Licensure Defense

The Strause Law Group, PLLC, represents physicians and physician groups in a wide array of regulatory, licensing, and compliance matters. If you are the subject of an investigation or peer review before the Kentucky Board of Medical License (KBML or Board) or other governing administrative body, you need assistance from lawyers who have the administrative and regulatory compliance background to effectively advocate for you.

Whether through the KBML or peer review investigation, you are now subjected to the statutory and regulatory process. When a physician is being investigated, this is the time to be proactive, The Strause Law Group, PLLC, attorneys help physicians navigate the investigative process and will strongly advocate to avoid disciplinary action being taken against their license.

When retained, an experienced professional license attorney should conduct a thorough investigation; in some instances, retain an expert to assist in determining the facts and formulate proper defenses to anticipated allegations. After a proper assessment, knowledgeable counsel should explore an advantageous resolution with the Board.

Any resolution should always keep in mind the physician's ability to practice, the physician's future employment, hospital-staff privileges, and any reporting requirements to the National Practitioners Data Bank. However, in the event an agreement could not be structured, we have the knowledge and experience to defend the physician against the Board charges in the disciplinary hearing process.
