Rather than having your license revoked (outright termination) or suspended for a lengthy and/or indefinite period of time, Spital & Associates seeks to obtain the most desirable disposition of your case. This may result in a period of probation — possibly three to five years.

During probation in a state board license case, there may be a suspended or stayed penalty, which might in some instances include supervision or monitoring by the state board.

However, the Terms and Conditions of an administrative law matter can vary widely and certainly can make a substantial difference in the outcome. For example, enforcement fines can vary tremendously between agencies and within the same agency.

Having over 49 years of experience, initially as a Deputy Attorney General and since 1978 as Defense Counsel in private practice along with our superb and relentless negotiation skills, we know what Terms and Conditions as well as fines are reasonable and appropriate and not excessive; your team of highly credentialed California Professional License Attorneys and credible forensic experts are thereby able to obtain a result our clients can be confident is not only fair but “win-win” for them.

When you are the subject of disciplinary action, you are vulnerable to a license violation and, if this occurs, you face the consequences of an actual suspension or revocation of your professional license. Hence, when retained by clients, we will prepare and present the most comprehensive and compelling written arguments to the Board seeking to obtain a license for applicants, to dismiss claims that are baseless, and to minimize any penalty being sought by the State. For those individuals that have been the subject of a prior disciplinary action, we can be retained with the goal to  reduce or terminate probation as early as possible.

If PROBATION has been imposed, there are remedies available. One of the actions we take is to seek a MODIFICATION and/or an EARLY TERMINATION of Probation.
