Our Lawyers Represent Physicians in the Hudson Valley / NYC Area Who Are Subject to Investigations and Disciplinary Proceedings by the Office of Professional Medical Conduct

An OPMC investigation and trial can have serious consequences for a physician. The repercussions can span from a public letter of reprimand and community service to fines, suspension, or loss of medical license. It is important to have an experienced OPMC attorney at your side throughout the entire process – from commencement of proceedings through investigation and/or trial. The investigations are thorough and can include interviewing patients and employees and subpoenaing documents. The dedicated lawyers at Sholes & Miller LLP have the experience and knowledge it takes to navigate physicians through the investigation and achieve a successful outcome.

A STRONG DEFENSE REQUIRES BUILDING A STRONG OFFENSE


To strategically counteract the government’s investigation, we conduct our own. Our attorneys’ extensive medical-legal background provides the powerful breadth of knowledge and experience necessary to flesh out the facts and develop a persuasive defense. Ms. Sholes has more than 30 years’ experience successfully trying complex medical malpractice claims and representing clients in administrative hearings. Mr. Miller worked as a registered nurse, hospital administrator, and nursing home administrator before he began his career as a defense attorney more than 20 years ago. It is their skill and acumen that has made Sholes & Miller into a sought after healthcare industry law firm.

Once our investigation is complete, we present our findings to the OPMC investigator in an attempt to terminate the proceeding before it reaches trial. In the event an administrative hearing is held, we skillfully craft a case to refute the charges or obtain reduction of the possible penalties.
