WISCONSIN MEDICAL LICENSE DEFENSE ATTORNEYS
Professional Medical License Defense for Nurses, Doctors, Physical Therapists, Counselors, Dentists, Pharmacists, and Chiropractors
Your license is your livelihood. We at Halling & Cayo understand this, because we’re licensed, too. Professional discipline can have devastating consequences on your finances, your reputation, and your well-being.

We treat every client with the utmost respect and discretion. We listen closely to your experience, your objectives, and your goals. We provide you with a clear path forward.

Can I get my license back after losing it?

Halling & Cayo can help stop you from losing your license
A disciplinary inquiry does not have to lead to license loss, even when the charges are serious. Other outcomes, including practice monitoring, mentoring, and supervision, that allow you to keep working. If you are facing an investigation, Halling & Cayo attorneys can help you respond fully and appropriately, and negotiate a fair outcome. In cases where negotiation does not lead to a resolution, our attorneys are well versed in the administrative hearing and appeal process.
