Here Is Why The Board Doesn’t Always Have The Last Word
An adverse decision by a licensing board, although discouraging, is not necessarily the end of the road. You have the right to appeal. But, you must act quickly and get creative.
There’s no way around it: These appeals are not easy. Someone appearing before the Medical Board of California has fewer rights than someone appearing in a court of law for a tort or criminal case. The Board makes the rules and enforces them. The reasoning behind how they make their decisions is not easily understood. That is why a lawyer with the knowledge and tenacity to explore every option can make all the difference.

If your license has been suspended or revoked, you can have the Medical Board of California’s decision reviewed by a judge by filing a writ of mandate. In some cases, you can get an injunction that will counter the adverse consequences of the Board’s decision until the license board appeal process is complete.
