You Deserve Fierce Representation

You have undoubtedly spent a lot of your time, energy, and money working toward obtaining your license; you have put your blood, sweat, and tears into getting to the point you’re at today. With one simple mistake, everything you have worked for could be at risk.

Medical boards hold a lot of power. These boards have the ability to revoke or restrict your ability to practice and to make a living. Most medical boards have quite strict rules regarding license suspension – even minor crimes can lead to penalties.

You could face penalties from the medical board if you are charged with:

  • Theft
  • Sexual misconduct
  • Fraud
  • Malpractice
  • Drug crimes
  • DUI

Representation at Your Disciplinary Proceeding

Thorough preparation for your proceeding is key. Our medical license defense attorneys in Memphis can help you prepare for the hearing and can advise you on what to expect. You also have the right to have an attorney present during the hearing. As informed and experienced professionals, we can serve as your voice and fight for your best interests during this hearing. We conduct comprehensive investigations to familiarize ourselves with your situation and uncover any beneficial evidence.


If your hearing does not lead to the results you desire, you have the right to appeal the medical board’s decision. Our team can represent you in your appeal as well. An appeal requires even more extensive research and investigation – and the Claiborne Ferguson Law Firm, P.A. is up to the job. You can count on our medical license defense attorneys to fight for you every step of the way.
