Medical Board

Fenton Law Group has earned a reputation as a “go-to” firm for physicians facing the prospect of disciplinary proceedings before the Medical Board of California and the Osteopathic Medical Board of California. Physicians are often caught off guard by the aggressive approach of the Medical Board in investigations and enforcement. Fenton Law Group takes a proactive and comprehensive approach that has proven effective in addressing Board inquiries, terminating Board investigations promptly whenever possible, and resolving disciplinary matters effectively, whenever necessary.

We not only defend our clients, but use our expertise and resources to help clients address compliance issues and minimize the risks of “collateral damage” to their practices and business interests. We have earned a reputation for tenacious defense of physicians at every stage, including administrative hearings and, when necessary, post-hearing appellate writ litigation.

In addition to defending physicians in Medical Board investigations and disciplinary actions, Fenton Law Group frequently challenges the Medical Board when the Board exceeds its legal authority. Recent examples include:

  • Successfully contesting the Medical Board’s efforts to intervene in bail hearings in multiple criminal cases;
  • Challenging the Medical Board’s discretionary reporting of non-reportable events on its website; and
  • Successfully stopping investigations undertaken without patient complaint or consent.
