Oftentimes, licensees find themselves in a position where he or she wants to “help” the investigation. However, most licensees do not realize that they may not be required to participate in the process, and that many times it is in the best interests of a licensee not to participate. The investigation will proceed whether or not the licensee chooses to get involved or not. Whether the licensee participates in his or her disciplinary investigation is a decision best made after a thorough discussion of the facts with the licensee’s attorney.
