What Should I Do if the IDFPR Says I Stand Accused of Wrongdoing?

Illinois Attorney for Professional License Defense

If you have been contacted by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) and informed that you are under investigation, the first step you should take is to contact a skilled and experienced attorney who is familiar with this field of law. At The Law Offices of Joseph J. Bogdan, Inc., we will act immediately to help you preserve your professional license and your reputation.

IDFPR Investigations

When determining the best steps to take when defending your professional license, you will want to be sure to understand who exactly is performing the investigation and what they are investigating. The IDFPR may investigate a wide variety of issues related to complaints filed with the Department, including those involving professional malpractice, tax fraud or non-payment, allegations related to substance abuse, violations of patient boundaries, billing fraud, and disciplinary actions by other licensing agencies or federal healthcare programs.

During an investigation, you should be cautious about making any statements to IDFPR investigators or prosecutors. Investigators are trained in obtaining information from licensees about any allegations or complaints, and even statements made that are intended to help your case could potentially be used against you. However, you have the right to notify investigators or prosecutors that you are being represented by an attorney and that your attorney will speak to them on your behalf throughout the rest of the investigation.

Defense Strategies During an IDFPR Investigation

When you work with The Law Offices of Joseph J. Bogdan, Inc., we will gather as many facts as possible about your case. This will include a detailed narrative of the events that led to the complaint, along with supporting documentation and the names of anyone involved. We will also obtain as much information as possible from the investigator, including the specific allegations and the identity of the person who made the complaint.

With this information on hand, we will help determine how to achieve the best possible outcome. Ideally, we will try to have the case closed without any disciplinary action being taken by the licensing board. If this is not possible, we will work to negotiate a private, non-disciplinary settlement that may a formal warning, fines, continuing education, or medical treatment. If public discipline cannot be avoided, we will work to minimize the potential disciplinary actions, which may include a public reprimand, a fine, ongoing medical treatment, a practice monitor, or a suspension.
