Professional Misconduct in Elizabeth, NJ
Professional practice in Elizabeth, New Jersey, is indeed rewarding, even special. But that practice is not so special as to entirely avoid the risk of licensing charges and license discipline. Indeed, professional practice in Elizabeth can be every bit as challenging and even hazardous as professional practice elsewhere. Medical practice in Elizabeth, for instance, is generally just as demanding and sophisticated as elsewhere. Patients face the same injuries and illnesses, needing the same critical, competent, and timely care. And patients, clients, colleagues, and employers can make the same excessive demands and have equally unreasonable expectations, as elsewhere. Sometimes, a professional simply can't avoid the difficult situations that can lead to disciplinary charges. Elizabeth professionals also face similar personal issues as professionals elsewhere, issues that can contribute to or outright cause licensing proceedings. Common causes of license issues in Elizabeth, New Jersey, as in other locations, include:
- Physical health problems due to injury, illness, or other cause
- Mental or emotional health issues from lifestyle, stress, or trauma
- Drug addiction from family history or mental and physical health factors
- Alcohol abuse, leading to drunk driving or working under the influence
- Professional conflicts involving patients, clients, or colleagues
- Loss of housing due to foreclosure, eviction, sale, or other cause
- Loss of transportation from vehicle accident or breakdown

Elizabeth, NJ Licensing Proceeding Stakes
Unfortunately, one cannot exaggerate the stakes that Elizabeth, New Jersey licensed professionals face in licensing proceedings. Licensing proceedings can result in the suspension or revocation of the professional's license. Losing a professional license in New Jersey generally means risking or losing a similar license in other states. The professional can't just move to another state to continue or resume practice, without dealing in that other state with the New Jersey license discipline. Losing a professional license means stopping the professional practice that the license permitted. Even a brief license suspension for, say, thirty days means stopping professional practice for that period, typically including notice of the suspension to patients, clients, and employers. Thus, license discipline often means an immediate loss of income, even loss of employment, with the corresponding loss of security and benefits. Losing income and benefits can mean losing a home, vehicle, and access to healthcare, and even losing a marriage and losing child custody. Those losses can contribute to mental and physical health declines. Again, it's not too much to say that you have everything on the line when facing Elizabeth, New Jersey licensing proceedings. With the stakes so high, retain the best available license defense representation. Hire attorney Joseph D. Lento and the Lento Law Firm's license defense team for a winning license defense.

You and your retained attorney may, with prompt and diplomatic action, satisfy your accuser that you did nothing wrong. But if the accusations reach disciplinary officials who judge the accusations to support a sufficiently serious violation, those officials may serve a formal complaint against you. You and your retained attorney will answer the complaint, providing information on which the officials may dismiss the charge. Otherwise, officials will continue to investigate up to a pre-hearing conference at which, once again, your retained attorney may negotiate the charge's dismissal. Charges not dismissed proceed to a formal hearing before a panel of independent decision makers. Your retained attorney may cross-examine witnesses and present your own testimony and witnesses at that hearing. If you suffer any license discipline after the hearing, your retained attorney may pursue an appeal. Your retained attorney may also help you satisfy all conditions for your license's prompt reinstatement. Attorney Lento's skilled and experienced representation can prevent a witch hunt, holding disciplinary officials to the protective procedures promoting your winning defense.
