What do disciplinary hearings involve?

Investigation process
Professional disciplinary bodies conduct investigations into the conduct of their respective professional members and if the breach of the standard of conduct is serious enough the regulator will prosecute to discipline their respective member by the imposition of sanctions such as fines, suspension or in extreme examples deregistration of the accreditation or certificate to practice their respective profession. The consequences can be devastating hence it’s important to contact a Balot Reilly criminal lawyer as early as possible in the investigation to protect your rights and to achieve the best possible outcome to save you stress, making the situation worse or losing your career. Professionals frequently make mistakes in their own defence, remember he/she that acts for himself has a fool for a client. Many past prosecutions could have been averted entirely or at least minimised with quality legal
representation. Instead professionals under scrutiny have frequently acted for themselves getting caught up in their own emotions and often inadvertently sabotage their own interests during the investigation process by making imprudent tactical decisions. Balot Reilly criminal Lawyers can defend your interests during the investigation process and during disciplinary hearings.

Hearing process
The professional under investigation will need to make a decision whether to plead guilty and plead for a merciful disposition or plead not guilty and contest the charges. If the professional pleads not guilty the regulator will be required to call witnesses and produce evidence to prove its case against the relevant professional to a standard of proof known as on the balance of probabilities. Balot Reilly criminal Lawyers can assist you to negotiate with the regulator and to challenge the evidence against you on a very high standard.

Ramifications against professionals
If the regulator proves that the breach of the standard of conduct is such a serious departure from the conduct expected by members of the profession, the regulator may prosecute in order to discipline the respective professional member by the imposition of sanctions such as fines, suspension or in extreme examples deregistration of the accreditation or certificate to practice their respective profession. The consequences can be devastating hence it’s important to contact a Balot Reilly criminal Lawyer as early as possible
