This presentation will focus on two legal problems professionals might face: Civil Lawsuits and Licensing Board/Disciplinary Proceedings. We will discuss how the two vary and how there may be some overlap between the two. The process of a lawsuit will be discussed including, how long the process takes, what the process entails, what the outcomes can be, & how long it typically takes. Likewise, the process of a Licensing Board Disciplinary Proceeding will be examined including, how the process can start, what the process entails, how long it takes and the potential outcomes.
