Understanding Your Rights
What to do when you receive an Administrative Complaint and Order for Summary Suspension
As a licensed professional, if you receive an Administrative Complaint, Letter of Intent to Revoke or an Order of Summary Suspension, you face significant challenges and the potential for losing your livelihood along with your license. This is an extremely serious matter, and you must address it promptly and accurately to preserve all of your potential defenses and ultimately your status as a licensed professional.
We have found that many licensees do not fully understand the personal and professional ramifications they face when their license is in jeopardy. If you find yourself in this daunting situation, you may be confused or intimated by the Administrative Procedure Act and the complex rules promulgated by the various agencies and boards.
You must follow a precise set of procedures in order to respond to the complaints and orders for summary suspension if you hope to prepare a proper response. You will need to determine your defense, identify witness and procure the necessary documents and investigative file materials from the Department. Additionally, you must identify and bring to light any mitigating factors.
You have certain rights and privileges associated with your license, and you should place yourself in a position to take advantage of the procedural safeguards built into our system. In fact, when you receive a complaint and order for summary suspension, the State Board or Department is in an adversarial position and will not be looking out for your best interests.
As a licensee, you have the right to be represented by counsel, and you should consider retaining counsel as early in the process as possible.
If you receive an Administrative Complaint and Order for Summary Suspension, don’t go at it alone. Turn to Madar Law Office for help. Contact us immediately at 517-668-9100.
