Redding Professional Licensing Defense Lawyer

Shasta County Medical License Suspension Attorney

If you are a licensed professional who has been arrested, you face two challenges — the criminal charge and the possible loss of your professional license. You need effective legal representation as soon as possible.

I am Joe Gazzigli, a criminal defense attorney with experience defending the professional licenses of doctors, nurses, lawyers and other licensed professionals.

Contact my firm to schedule a consultation about your case with an experienced Redding professional licensing defense attorney.

A message for doctors — If you have been arrested, your license can be suspended for 30 days or more. My firm can stay that suspension for some period of time, allowing you to continue to practice and giving me time to prepare a defense in the criminal case as well as in any disciplinary proceedings.

Experience Counts

I have more than 35 years of experience defending people accused of DUI, drug crimes and other misdemeanors and felonies. Regarding any criminal charge, I will work tirelessly to obtain a dismissal of the charge, an acquittal or other acceptable outcome. Eventually, I may be able to get an expungement, depending on the circumstances of your case.

While getting a dismissal or acquittal can go a long way toward satisfying the professional licensing board, you still face the possibility of disciplinary action. I will mount a proactive effort to defend your license and avoid any sanctions.

Protecting Your License

I have experience representing clients before many of the professional licensing boards in California, including the California Medical Board.

I will defend your license at all stages of the disciplinary process, from the initial inquiry to a full hearing before the board. I will seek to avoid any negative consequences or to minimize the extent of the discipline.

Your license is very important. I will fight for your license and your reputation.
