Texas Speech-Language Pathologist License Defense Attorney
Speech and language-related issues can be very severe in certain circumstances. A child or adult might be physically unable to talk or produce verbal sounds due to a medical or cognitive condition. Such issues are often hereditary, slowly develop over time or occur instantly due to a medical condition.
People place their trust in speech-language pathologists (SLPs) to help them address such complicated issues. Unfortunately, patients sometimes file formal complaints against the SLP who treated them or a loved one.
If you are an SLP in Texas and someone filed a formal complaint against you, it’s critical that you have an experienced, Texas medical license defense attorney on your side.
