Impact of Decision of Whether to Retain an Experienced Law Firm
If you have received a letter from the North Carolina Veterinary Medical Board or have a pending formal hearing, you should consider retaining a firm like ours that has experience representing veterinarians and other licensees before the North Carolina Veterinary Medical Board. We have a good working relationship with counsel for the North Carolina Veterinary Medical Board and may be able to negotiate an acceptable resolution without the need for a formal hearing, if the complaint is not dismissed. Disciplinary action could have a significant and permanent impact on your reputation and license, which also can substantially affect you financially and personally. Representation at the informal stage is significantly less expensive than in a formal evidentiary hearing. The investment in protecting your reputation, license, and livelihood generally is more cost-effective in the early stages. In almost all cases, getting us involved early is our firm’s best opportunity to assist you in obtaining a favorable or acceptable outcome.
