The professionals we regularly represent include:

We offer counsel to clients related to investigations and administrative procedures conducted by licensing boards such as:

Serving as defense counsel in a recent high-stakes lawsuit, Hyatt & Weber prevailed for our client in a two-week federal court trial. The victory avoided a multimillion-dollar award against the chiropractor and her insurance company, and also prevented any disciplinary action that may have impacted the status of her license.
We also have extensive experience in helping our clients take actions that can avoid litigation and licensing disputes, including providing legal counsel to professionals struggling with addictions that fall within the scope of federal protections.
