Accusations

An accusation is a disciplinary action wherein a licensing agency seeks to revoke, suspend, or impose other discipline upon a licensee’s ability to practice his or her chosen profession.

Accusations are always quite serious, given the possible range of penalties. The process for litigating accusations at the Office of Administrative Hearings is set forth in our Administrative Hearing Process Chart.

While not all accusation cases go to hearing, the attorneys of Simas & Associates, Ltd., have many years of experience in resolving accusations by settlement. Because the needs of our clients vary, and the facts of each case can be different, each case must be evaluated upon its own merit. Our attorneys can evaluate whether or not a case may be settled, and whether or not our clients may continue to practice their chosen profession under the terms and conditions of a settlement—which often includes a probationary license.
