Pharmacists in Texas answer to the State Board of Pharmacy. Texas has delegated the licensing and disciplining of pharmacists to the board, and the board has similar powers to a government agency. This includes the ability to temporarily or permanently strip a pharmacist of their ability to work in their chosen profession.
Simoneaux Law Firm protects pharmacists against disciplinary proceedings, civil lawsuits, and criminal charges. We handle all levels of allegations from minor technical violations to Controlled Substances Act infractions. We also assist with license defense due to outside legal matters such as DWI charges, seeking mental health treatment, or personal substance abuse allegations.
In many cases, an experienced attorney may be able to defend against disciplinary action where a pharmacist with little knowledge of the board’s procedures may not know how to defend themselves. Whether you’ve received a letter of investigation, an initial complaint, or already have proceedings underway, we may be able to help.
Our offices are in Bee Cave, conveniently located just outside of downtown Austin and in close proximity to the Texas State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH). We proudly serve clients from all across the State of Texas and are also licensed to practice in Louisiana and California. If you need representation before the Board of Pharmacy for any of these States, contact us now to schedule a consultation.
