PHARMACIES AND PHARMACISTS
When your pharmacy license is on the line, experience and expertise truly matter when it comes to handling disciplinary and reinstatement matters. James W. Burdick of Burdick Law, P.C. represents pharmacies and pharmacists against their administrative complaints and disciplinary issues, offering disciplinary and reinstatement representation throughout the State of Michigan and the Detroit Metropolitan area.
Jim Burdick has the reputation, familiarity, comprehensive experience and expertise needed to help you defend you. With more than four decades of legal experience, including many years as a member of the Michigan Board of Medicine, he has a thorough and complete understanding of the pharmacy health system and how to help you avoid disciplinary action, or if unavoidable, how to limit the damages and penalties if suspended.
A PROACTIVE AND SKILLFULLY CRAFTED APPROACH
While other attorneys may be complacent with simply “representing” you at an administrative hearing, Jim Burdick places all of his efforts into a skillfully crafted, individualized and proactive approach. He will first meet with you regarding either an administrative complaint or criminal investigation and gather the facts of the situation. Next, when appropriate, he will compile a “self-report” that describes:
- What occurred from your perspective
- What steps you have taken (individually and under his guidance) since then
- Why a discharge or disciplinary action would be unfair, unnecessary or inappropriate
In cases where substance abuse is involved, he will create a specialized and personal rehabilitation plan for you, which usually involves the Michigan Health Professional Recovery Programs (HPRP), as well as highly-skilled and experienced addiction medicine physicians and therapists that are “in network” with HPRP. This will be included in your self-report, which shows a licensing board your willingness toward rehabilitation and sobriety, thus no loss of licensure and a successful petition for reinstatement.
“Thanks for everything you did for me. I will never forget you!”
