Fenton Jurkowitz Law Group Successfully Defends Physician

Henry Fenton and Nick Jurkowitz successfully defended a physician, specializing and board certified in obstetrics and gynecology, in a Medical Board hearing against allegations of gross and repeated negligence. In light of the physician’s 19-year history of licensure without prior discipline, the Board ruled that inadequate record keeping was the sole punishable offense, for which only a reprimand was issued. The finding protected the physician, whose entire career has been spent at one hospital, from probation and consequent loss of privileges and opportunities. The client and previous legal counsel had discussed settling for probation, prior to transfer of the case to Fenton Jurkowitz Law Group.
