OPD Process


New York City OPD Defense Lawyers

Experienced Professional Conduct Investigation Lawyers Serving Long Island, Manhattan, Brooklyn and Rochester Areas

The Office of Professional Discipline investigates allegations of misconduct across a wide range of professions in New York State.

We guide licensed professionals through every step of the OPD investigative process. From initial inquiries and investigations to hearings and beyond, we stand by our clients to help minimize the risk of severe penalties such as revocation of their professional license.

OPD will investigate any complaint against a licensee, no matter where the complaint originates. When our New York professional license defense attorneys get involved with OPD complaints we thoroughly analyze the case to prepare a defense strategy.

Sometimes these investigations will go no further than the discovery stage if we can successfully show that the complaint has no merit. However, if it is determined by the OPD investigator that the complaint has merit, a more formal review process will begin. We represent our clients at every stage of the OPD process. Our experience can help close cases or reduce any repercussions to the lowest penalty possible.

One wrong statement at any stage of the OPD process can hinder your chances of a successful outcome. During each stage of the investigation or formal review, our Manhattan, Long Island, Brooklyn and Rochester lawyers advise and counsel you on the appropriate actions to take at each step.

Our attorneys have over 50 years combined experience and a proven track record in guiding clients through the OPD process.

Our lawyers are available to represent licensed professionals, including medical professionals and other health care licensees and businesses in Manhattan, Long Island, Brooklyn and throughout New York State.

Michael S. Kelton is the senior partner in charge of overseeing all professional disciplinary cases, Denise Buda and Jordan S. Fensterman are partners who work with Mr. Kelton on OPD cases.
