Doctor accused of sexual misconduct during a physical exam,
inappropriate touching? We Can Help.
Our criminal defense lawyers for physicians defend doctors and strategically prepare for what's coming.
We help physicians, psychotherapists, EMTs and other healthcare workers accused of sexual misconduct by patients defend their license, liberty, and reputation. While a doctor’s first instinct will be to rely on their reputation or seek a quick financial settlement (Don’t Do This) , Pattis Law Firm sexual misconduct by doctor attorneys have learned that a different, immediate, and strategic defense is critical.
In sexual misconduct cases a doctor or other healthcare worker faces three immediate adversaries:
- Police Investigation and Criminal Charges
- Medical License Board Complaint and License Revocation
- Aggrieved Patient and Her Attorneys with a Civil Lawsuit
Secondary Adversaries in a Sexual Misconduct Case include:
- Journalists and Reporters Eager for "Doctor Arrested" Headlines
- Other Alleged Victims or False Claimants Seeking Damages
Physician sexual misconduct complaints are complex as your criminal defense attorney must simultaneously address professional misconduct complaints, criminal charges, civil financial liability, and the media, each with their own intricacies.
Nationally recognized criminal trial attorney and author Norm Pattis has deep experience helping doctors and other professionals aggressively defend their rights and freedom.

Contact a Pattis Law Firm Connecticut criminal defense lawyer immediately if a patient threatens a sexual misconduct complaint, their attorney calls, police "have questions", or a reporter inquires
Doctors are frequent targets of patient accusations, often due to a patient’s mental instability or psychiatric disabilities, prescription drug problems, mischaracterization of clinical examination, or sometimes outright extortion.
Guilt or innocence is irrelevant at this point because doctors are considered a high dollar target by patients or their lawyers, reporters are guaranteed days of Physician Arrested headlines and bylines as wealth and allegations of sexual misconduct assure audience excitement, and police follow a presumption of guilt theory of investigation in scandal-potential cases.
Each year many sexual misconduct complaints in Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts and elsewhere are levied against physicians, nurses, EMTs, psychotherapists, and you must act quickly to preserve your rights.
