Customer reply replied 7 months ago
My legal question:
I was part of a settlement agreement.
After the settlement agreement was signed I filed a dental complaint with a dental Board concerning the parties of the case.Because he didn't have a controlled substance license while he was working for me.
I believe I am liable for this Dr. not have a CSL while he worked in a clinic I owned an operated.My dilemna is do I report this to the proper authorities?
Lawyer: Loren, Attorney replied 7 months ago

Thank you for the additional information.

I think you will have to file with the state board or risk additional liability. Hiding it, once you know, may have more severe repercussions than reporting it.

Also, if you report it you can retain a certain amount of control over the matter, as you are a victim in this, as well.

I recommend that you retain an attorney, experienced in professional licensing and disciplinary matters. Have the attorney make the contact and communicate with the Board for you.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
