RCFE License Revocation Defense
We focus our administrative law practice on license defense for RCFE‘s, child care centers and adult residential facilities. Many of our clients have a history of inspections and citations resulting in considerable evidence of non-compliance with Title 22 regulations. Despite considerable evidence of non-compliance, our license defense attorneys approach every case with the belief that a favorable settlement can be reached with the Department of Social Services. Once retained we contact the attorney assigned by D.S.S. and discuss the feasibility of settlement. If a settlement can be reached our client can continue operations without appearing at an administrative hearing. If a settlement cannot be reached before hearing our license defense attorney represents our clients before the Office of Administrative Hearings.
Why Is Licensing Trying To Revoke Your License?
Before we can negotiate with licensing to reach a settlement we need to understand why they took the step of initiating an administrative action to revoke your license. If a client has been served with a temporary suspension order licensing believes there is an imminent risk to resident health and safety. For instance, an open body of water not enclosed by a fence may prompt licensing to issue a temporary suspension order. If a TSO has been issued a settlement will be difficult to achieve absent substantial justification in the form of removing the hazardous condition.
The First Step To Saving Your License
Once served with the Accusation you will have a limited amount of time to weigh your options. You must promptly file a Notice of Defense to preserve your right to an administrative hearing and timely comply with the Department’s discovery request. Accordingly, you should seek legal representation as soon as possible. To help you begin the process and explore your legal options we provide free phone consultations. If you would like to retain our services after your consultation we also provide electronic representation agreements and convenient online payment options to fast-track representation.
