Pharmacists have a large responsibility to keep others safe. Your job is vital to providing patients the accurate medication they are prescribed. When you are accused of a crime, your license can be disciplined in the form of probation, suspension or revocation. Examples of these convictions are domestic disputes, a DUI, or drug charges. Whatever the details of your case are, you’ll need the assistance of a professional license attorney to defend the Accusation filed against you by the Board of Pharmacy.
Here’s what the process looks like:
Get Help from a Professional License Attorney
The sooner you get help, the better. You need to respond to the Accusation in a timely and proper manner, file a written Notice of Defense to the Accusation, usually within 15 days, and request a hearing. Consulting with a California license attorney like our team at Unlock Legal can help build your case and get you back to your career.
Showcase Your Reputation
During the defense of the Accusation, it’s important to show you have good moral character. You may have to attend a formal hearing where you can argue your case before an Administrative Law Judge. As a pharmacist, your duty is to provide trustworthy service to all of your patients. When your license is questioned, so is your reputation. Documentation to prove your positive reputation, such as testimonies or recommendations from personal and professional contacts, can change your entire case. These character reference letters must acknowledge that the author knows of your charge and be signed under penalty of perjury.
