The Board has offered me a Consent Order. I agree that I made the mistakes listed in the proposed Consent Order. Is it worth disputing?
A Consent Order is a public document that stays on the practitioner’s record for the rest of their career and can carry significant collateral consequences. Even in cases where a practitioner may agree that they made a mistake, Mellette PC attorneys have been successful in negotiating revisions to proposed Consent Orders that reduce the sanction, correct inaccurate factual findings, add mitigating information, and potentially minimize future consequences. The attorneys of Mellette PC can help you review an offered Consent Order and decide whether to ask for revisions or proceed to an Informal Conference.
