Psychology License Defense

South Carolina Psychology License Defense Lawyers

Psychology License DefensePsychology professionals are bound by statutes and regulations set forth by the South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation (LLR).

A psychologist can be subject to disciplinary action for a variety of reasons including but not limited to:

  • Criminal Conduct
  • Practicing beyond the authorized scope of practice
  • Negligence
  • Practicing while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or while impaired due to a mental disability
  • Drug Abuse or addiction
  • Alcohol Abuse or Addiction
  • Allowing professional duties to be performed by unauthorized staff
  • Sexual Misconduct
  • Failure to maintain proper records
  • Fraud

The South Carolina Board of Psychology can issue disciplinary actions after a thorough investigation based on a complaint. A complaint may be filed by a patient, fellow employee, or other psychology professional. Just because a complaint is filed does not mean you are guilty. If you feel a complaint may be filed against you, contact one of our  Psychology License Defense attorneys quickly to address the situation.

South Carolina Department of LLR Complaints

Once a complaint is filed, an investigator from the LLR will contact you regarding the complaint. Be wary when speaking to the investigator. Know that anything you say may be used against you. The investigator may simply say they want your side of the story so he/she can close the case. You have the right to decline comment until you speak with your professional license defense attorney. Even if the investigator sounds friendly, remember they are working for the LLR.

Losing your psychology license can cause legal, financial, and emotional problems. Don’t wait until it too late. Contact a professional license attorney immediately before or after speaking to an investigator.

Handling Referrals to the RPP

If you have been found guilty of a drug or alcohol-related offense you may be referred to the South Carolina Recovering Professionals Program (RPP). The RPP will assess your situation and determine whether you need treatment. You may be subject to monitoring by the RPP for a specified amount of time. The RPP works in conjunction with LRADAC and the LLR. Their goal is to provide you adequate care to get you back to professional practice.

If you are currently being investigated by the South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation, contact a professional licensing attorney immediately. The Strom Law Firm, LLC has professional licensing attorneys who can help you with your Psychology License Defense. Call for a free consultation, 803-252-4800.

What Our Clients Say

They truly care
Mrs Vallery, who answered the phone took more care and attention to detail than any other law office, that I have called, in 2 years+. She diligently took notes to give to the lawyers and cared about my situation and let me actually tell everything without cutting me short. Out of over 100 law offices, this is rare treatment. Care. Consideration. That means more than anything going through this…
Professional Representation, Satisfying Legal Outcome!
My wife and I retained Bakari Sellers to represent our son in a case in Richland County. We found Mr. Sellers, his assistant Stephanie, and the rest of the staff at Strom, extremely courteous and professional. We really appreciated Mr. Sellers’ straightforward and honest approach. We believe this is a very competent law firm, and are satisfied with the legal outcome they achieved. We would highly recommend them!

From Self-Representation to Victory in SSDI Case!
My experience with Mario and his staff was outstanding. When everyone said to give up my case with SSDI and after being poorly represented and losing. I had to file my own appeals and represent myself. I literally called every attorney in the book. Then I called Mario cold – I expected one more no! Well, this gentleman took my case and won. He knows the law and cares a lot. I am proud to call him my friend. If you need a professional to help you, call these guys.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.
A Winning Team at Strom Law Firm!
John Alphin was great. We basically worked together for 22 months. Bakari Sellers was also on the team and together those 2 guys were fabulous. Won the case and I’m still a client of Strom law firm. Thank you and awesome law firm.

Strom Law Firm was really great and professional. I had a great experience with Mario as my attorney and his paralegal, Brian. These two are amazing, they worked very hard on my husband’s workman’s comp case and we were very pleased with the services and results 👍.
