Our Professional License Defense Attorneys Protect Your Career and Credentials
An allegation of professional or ethical misconduct is a traumatic experience. After you dedicated your career to your profession, your competence and integrity may now be called into question and your very livelihood may be threatened. Cheshire Parker Schneider & Bryan has been helping professionals through this difficult process for over three decades. We understand the seriousness of these issues and know the steps you need to take to protect yourself.
Alan Schneider, the leader of our professional ethics and licensing defense section, has spent his entire 25-year legal practice fighting to protect the careers and livelihoods of licensed professionals. Alan is a member of the Association of Professional Responsibility Lawyers (APRL), an independent national organization that helps to improve legal practice through the implementation and promotion of sound rules that govern the legal profession. He also serves on the Ethics Committee of the North Carolina Advocates for Justice. In 2007, the North Carolina State Bar’s Disciplinary Guidelines Committee chose Alan to review guidelines affecting disciplinary cases. He also acted as the former chair of the Ethics Committee for the North Carolina Bar Association’s Criminal Justice Section.
Alan and our team of professional ethics and licensing defense lawyers guide you through the grievance or complaint process.
