Settlements and certain occurrences are reported to the national database on a mandatory basis, which could cause licensing issues in more than one state.

Presenting on licensing issues and their intersection with medical malpractice defense, attorney Favia has more than 25 years of experience in health law and litigation and works in conjunction with a team of litigators, experts and investigators to advise and represent clients. He is experienced working on both sides of professional licensing matters, the prosecution and defense.
